sell everything from your old PC(except HDD, if you wanna keep them but don't use them as primary HDD.). It'll fetch around 12k-13k i think. Your budget is now around ~63k.
Now get this rig-

FX 8350 ~ 12.5k
Gigabyte GA 970A DS3P ~ 5.5k
HyperXBlu 4GB ~ 2.5k
Seasonic S12II ~ 5k
Deepcool Tessaract ~ 2.5k
WD Blue 1TB ~ 4k
Dell S2240L ~ 8.5k
Sapphire R9 280x ~ 22k
get a cooler kf you want.
