This doesn't tell us anything.

No, it won't run Skyrim, let alone next gen games.

Then I'd have to change the motherboard which might mean less ram/ability to upgrade to ddr3

you're paying $150 for that mobo. you can get an FM2 mobo for $75

you can get an a10-6800k and mobo for less than $210. That's saving you money right there.
