Default Questions about upgrading Mobo & CPU

I bought a computer for 600$ in 2012 and still have the same Mobo & CPU. Since then I have upgraded the RAM from 4 to 8, gotten a new power supply, and an AMD Radeon HD 7750 for the graphics card. I was looking to get a AMD FX-6300 and a motherboard to go with it since the motherboard I have right now doesnt have an AM3+ socket type. I was wondering if I should get a new graphics card and what I would have to do if I were to replace the motherboard?? I know I have to install Windows 7 again but I'm not sure if I have my old CD and I don't have a product key (new computer case as well, trashed the old one).

What model though?

You could probably get an 8320 and a decent board on that budget rather than a 6300.
