Current build

AMD Phenom II X6 1045T (2.7 GHZ)
8 GB A-data 1333 PC3 Ram
XFX Radeon 5770 1024 MB

Build i have planned

Intel i5 4670 3.4 GHZ
16 GB PC3 1600 G-skill Ripjaws
EVGA Superclocked GTX 760 2GB

Overall how much performance boost will i be seeing with my gaming?

Personally, I'd suggest getting 8GB of RAM and then putting the money saved towards getting a HD 7970 instead of the 760.

A large increase in performance, but the RAM won't change much. You should use the RAM you have and use the money you would have spent on a 7970 or an SSD

This, or at least a 4GB 760

I second that. There's absolutely no point in getting 16 gb of ram over a better graphics card.

I wouldn't bother with the GHz edition. They're easy to overclock on their own, as long as you can do it on an H87 board. The ASUS 7970 is probably the best one under $300 if you can fit a 3 slot card. If not either the XFX or Sapphire cards are a good choice.
