    Buying X58 motherboard in 2017

    Hello, I just found an Asus Rampage III Formula motherboard (with one of black ram slots not working) and i7 950 for 420 TRY (110$). Would buying these parts make sense? Is it an acceptable upgrade from my A10-7850K? I have 3*4 12 GB DDR3 RAM, R7 260X GPU.

    Q8400 kinda overheating??

    Thank you all guys! I researched a bit and figured out that 70C is safe. When I got money I will buy 2nd fan. I own one of these but I cool down myself in a non-AC room :D Here's my setup.
