Default New Gaming pc - Help

Hi everyone,

I am currently using a seven years old computer equipped with:
System model: P5K-E
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @2.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
Graphics card: Twintech GeForce GTS450 (1GB GDDR5
Memory: 4GB RAM DDR2

I am about to go to the shop and buy some cheap new equipment. Before doing so I'd like to check if this will have a huge impact on my current computer, will it be much better?, and is it worth the purchase? or should I wait to have more money?

New equipment:
ASUS P8Z77-V LX (SOCKET 1155, PCI EXPRESS, INTEL Z77 CHIPSET, 2 X SATA II RAID + 2 SATA III RAID,..
8GB KIT (2 X 4GB) DDR3 1600MHZ 9-9-9-24 CORSAIR VENGEANCE BLUE CML8GX3M2A1600C9B
INTEL CORE I5-3570K 22NM (3.4 ~ 3.8GHZ) IVY BRIDGE, 6MB, 4 CORES, 4 THREADS, TURBO, INTEL HD,..

These will cost me a grand total of 375 euros.

What would you recommend me to do? or to change.
(sidenote: What is the difference between p8z77-v LX and other p8z77-v's that cost much more, for instance p8z77-v LE, p8z77-v Deluxe,etc...)

Thank you very much in advance!
