My System Specs

Question Hardware Bottle necks!

So After upgrading my Gpu from a XFX 4890 to a Gigabyte GTX 560 OC.

I was trying out a few games that I couldn't play before like Just Cause 2.

My frame rate was no better then is was a few years back with my Old 4890.

I guess my hardware is getting to old.

MSI k9a2 platinum, AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE @ 3.8Ghz,6GB's DDR2 6400 @ 800Mhz

I think my Mobo and Ram are the two parts holding my whole computer back so I am going to replace them with something newer then a bit later I plain to replace the Cpu.

Here are the parts I've picked out. I'm just asking for some opinions on my old hardware to the newer stuff.

ASUS Crosshair V FORMULA-Z ATX AM3+ 990FX/SB950 DDR3 CrossFireX 3PCI-E16 SATA3 USB3.0 Motherboard

AMD FX-8350 8 Core Processor Socket AM3+ 4.0GHZ 16MB 125W Retail Box

G.SKILL TridentX F3-2400C10D-16GTX 16GB 2X8GB DDR3-2400 CL10 240PIN 1.65V Dual Channel Memory Kit
Making music sure is hard!
But at the end of the day it's well worth it.
