Your video card is nice, but you could go with something like a i7 and 6 ~ 8gb of DDR3 and a SSD.

Don't test my skills, I was trained by myself! Check out my Gaming Videos!

Phenom-2 x6 1100t would be kickass. It would be able to push two 5770 cards in crossfire. Your current CPU is nice, but their might be a problem with your current rig. Get that new power supply and test your current rig first.
