Wait a couple of weeks - on April 11, AMD releases the Ryzen 5 CPUs. If you don't go overboard with features, you can build a decent gaming system with a few compromises for that price range.

You won't get state of the art (a powerful video card for top level gaming will run you that $500 over and above the cost of the system) but you should be able to put together a decent mid-level system for $500 or so - CPU, $175, case and power supply $100-120, mainboard $100 or so, 256 G SSD (not NVME) about $100-120, 8G RAM at $60 or so,

It looks like the CPU was locked down out of position.  It's anyone's guess whether both parts are bad, but you may wind up replacing both of them.  Start with the mainboard.

I would have to change the whole CPU configuration. So the best option would be to get the latest hardware and assemble them in a new cabinet. What do you think?

You've already asked that in your other threads of questions.  You need to figure out your expectations and budget - if it's gaming, the 620s will never serve, so yes- have a new system built or build one.  Just don't buy at the 620s level.  Even a mid-range gaming desktop (pre-built or build yourself will run in the $600-700 - AMD, or $750-900 (Intel) range.  If you're looking for "latest hardware" including a Ryzen 7 or i7 CPU, NVMe drive, etc., budget in the $1100-1300 range (without monitor/Keyboard/mouse).
