  2. Choice of memory and motherboard... a bit stuck...

    No one who got some suggestions on this one, huh?

    I've found out that the Asus M3A78-T needs to be flashed, so then that motherboard is excluded from my list. Which motherboard and memory should I then go for? Any suggestions?

    It depends on how Windows 10 was originally configured on your computer.

    If its a full retail store bought license online or offline, it is transferable to a new computer or motherboard.

    If its the free upgrade from a retail store bought Windows 7 or Windows 8 license, it is transferable to a new computer or motherboard.

    If its the free upgrade from a OEM preinstalled Windows 7 or Windows 8 license, it is NOT transferable to a new computer or motherboard.

    If its a retail license, learn how to reactivate:

    Motherboard failure

    Compatible CPU list for the late, lamented MSI 970A G46:

    Support For 970A-G46 | Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design | MSI Global

    (200W max, as you write.)

    The FX-9370 has a 220W TDP, making it an outlier. It appears that some 990FX based motherboards support it, but they seem to be only available on the used market.

    The obvious choice would be to replace CPU (with a Ryzen 2000 or 3000 series), MB (Socket X470 or X570), and RAM (DDR4). It wouldn't be necessary to buy a high-end CPU to outperform the FX-9370. If the OP can afford it, that'd be the way to go.
