What GPU did you have before?
Have you got Vsync on?

Your FX 4100 isn't the greatest, but even so, the frame rate should have improved.

Yes - your cpu will be the bottleneck.

You need to get a better cpu. eg FX8350 with a 990fx chipset motherboard.

The 970 chipset is fine for an FX 8350.

Yes, it has less features, but there is no point in getting a 990FX chipset board when you already have an M5A97, which supports the 8350 just fine.

I honestly don't see why some people say that you 'must' have a 990FX board with an FX 8320/8350. 970 chipset performs fine, as long as the board is well built.

The motherboard you've got is notoriously crappy. The FX8350 will put a bigger load on it.

Your motherboard only as 4+1 phases for voltage control, no VRM heatsinks and can't be used for overclocking.

An ASRock 990fx Extreme 4 has 8+2 phases and is heatsinked and good for overclocking.

Hopefully your power supply is good. What make and model?

We've had a lot of problems with them - bad voltage control (crappy capacitors) and badly moulded 24 pin motherboard connectors. You should look at replacing that too down the track. See http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-su... - its in Tier 3 - not for serious overclockers.
