Default Any bootle necks?

Sorry I am just wondering if anything might be holding me back in regards to gaming.

I have a Asus P8P67 B3 revision, Motherboard, a I5 2500k cpu with a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme cooler, Sapphire R9 290 Vapor Xc OC GPU, not sure on the type of RAM atm but 8 gigs and I just ordered a new ASUS Xonar DGX 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Gaming Audio Card
For using with my PC350 SE headset or old Logitech 5.1 sound system.

For the case I have a Fractial Design R4 with just the fans that came with it but I did remove the upper bay for the video card and moved the front fan from the bottom to the top slot where the bay had been.

Thank you for any advice.

Not much if at all...sounds good. CPU overclocked? RAM at least 1600mhz?

I have not overclocked my CPU since I put in the motherboard a year or so ago, but I plan to. No idea what my RAM is, is there a easy way to find out?
