Upgrade main board on pc

I have an HP Pavillion p6-2120ea 64 bit machine. HP no longer support this; keep getting messages that AMD updates no longer work. Took advantage of MS free Win 10 upgrade.

So can I just replace the main board and connect my current HDDs and 8GB memory and new MSI GT 710 1GD3H LP video card to the new board?

What about the CPU and free Win 10?

Is this the best cheapest option or will this create more problems.

Performance of the current machine, until video problems; dual screens not behaving properly now, was all I require.
