How about going with FX-6300? It's 65% better than your current CPU,
comparison: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-A6-3620-APU-vs-AMD-FX-6300/m8057vs1555

For that CPU, any AM3+ socket MoBo will do. Also, all AM3+ socket MoBos support DDR3 RAM, e.g this combo:

Note: prices above are for brand new components. Either find the extra 20 bucks or search them at 2nd hand market for cheaper price. Oh, CPU cooler is also included with CPU.
