hi in 2009 i build a killing machine for gaming. today i dont do gaming anymore :) .
my prob is that my mobo is not supported compatibility with win10( istill run win7) . i have asus p6t v2 deluxe . see my rig below.

now. i read some people do find work around to run win 10 with p6t deluxe v2 but i dont know what it implies . what does it imply? vulnerability?
concern1:i want not to spend to much money to have a compatible system with win 10 and possibly the next windows
concern2: iwant to be good for couple years without having to rechange my hardware because of futur non supported hardware(i had the same rig for 12 years without need for change and id like to do another 10 years with the change i will do soon?

My need in not for gaming anymore . maybe a bit of videoediting just a bit but i do have a tendency to have 3 firefox windows with 5 tab each in my everyday serches and work so i want not to wait to long for booting.
I have read that amd do less chaging in hardware than intel witch maybe can led to longer lifespan in terms of support by windows , correc me if im wrong...

what would you do?
should i try to find a mid range recent mobo combo processor and keep all my hardware ddr3 an gpu ? how long would that be supported?
should i buy an cheap yet performant" couple years old "combo that fit my hardware and see in 6 years what i want to do?
should i try to install win10 1903 for one year and see if the newer versions of win10 give me problems delaying the question to later?
here is my rig.
