Bingo.Unfortunately AMD's Bulldozer processors are relatively weak performers. They're decent overclockers, though.

CPU is the best choice, either replacing or overclocking what you have. Your video card & memory are a good match for even the faster CPUs.

GTX560 Ti is still a top tier GPU - no reason to upgrade that.
