    I would try OCing that CPU a little and perhaps thinking of a GPU upgrade.

    The GTX 750 Ti in the GR8 is a bit faster and the whole system will be a fraction of the size and power of your current one.

    You could get an FX CPU and throw in a better GPU, or get the GR8.

    If you have an AM3+ mobo, you can get the FX.

    You would save a lot of money that way. And you could get a monster of a GPU.

    Because it's C4E - 890FX - the FX support is quite limited to specific models. The product page contains the FX numbers. An 8-core chip will certainly be a boost but it's limited to early Bulldozer series. There's also Phenom II X6 chips to consider, if you can still find one!
