I would like to use Times Roman font for the main text, but keeping the standart LaTeX font for math mode. I tried the mathptmx package but it changes both main text and math mode font. I know which the times package produces the desired result, but it is now obsolete. Any suggestion?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! The shapes of the standard math fonts don't blend at all with Times New Roman.

If you really want this (questionable) combination using the package times is ok (but check if the sans serif and typewriter is too your liking).

You can also simply add \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptm} to your preamble if you only want to change the roman font.

\usepackage[scale=0.9]{tgheros}%% TeX Gyre Sans Serif
\usepackage{tgtermes}%%           TeX Gyre Times

foo \textsf{bar} \textbf{baz}

\[ \int_1^\infty \frac{1}{x^2}\mathrm{d}x = 1 \]
