I have been having some issues on an old PC my brother has and have come to the conclusion that most of it just needs scrapped. I'm doing this slightly third party and haven't been able to mess with the PC too much myself, but from what I've gathered there's a power issue, cables have been checked/replaced, and the PSU has also been replaced. Since the issue is still remaining and considering it's an older build, I figure it'd be more cost effective to rebuild a PC from scratch.
To save as much money as possible, he wants to keep the GTX 750 TI and the AMD - FX-6300 CPU, along with the case, Hard Drive, and the new PSU he bought.
Just fishing for suggestions- on whether or not it's worth it to keep this build with the following motherboard; https://pcpartpicker.com/product/C2mxFT/asus-m5a78l-m-plususb3-micro-atx-am3-motherboard-m5a78l-m-plususb3
or if it's more recommended to spend the extra 100 to get a newer motherboard with a new CPU? Like from this build; https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/hXzKHx/entry-level-intel-gaming-build
