I'm planning on upgrading my PC and switching to MicroATX (will be a living room TV/PC gaming setup so I want a smaller case). My goal is to have a machine that plays modern games at >50fps at medium settings on a 27in monitor, and handles high-definition playback of movies to a large 1080p television, possibly 4k in the near future.
My questions are: Can I keep my GPU? And if so, what are some good CPUs I can pair it with?

Any parts I get rid of will go to my brother, whose PC just tanked.
