Where to buy older computer parts (Socket AM3 Motherboard)?

My motherboard just died - it's an old MSI 890GXM-G65. It's a socket AM3 and uses DDR3 ram. The rest of the parts work just fine so it feels like a waste to replace everything if I buy a new-model motherboard. Where in the GTA can I find a place that sells older computer parts? For reference, the rest of my parts include an AMD 8350, gtx970, 550 watt psu, 16gb DDR3 ram.

Thanks in advance!

I would look at board and cpu, used.. like this guy does. he rebuilds older computers. which you can use your parts.

heres a good video can watch.
