  1. how much are you looking to spend?
    also for a high end GPU you'll need a new power supply. 400W is no where enough

    Hi - As dasulman already mentioned, you need to post your budget for GPU & PSU.
    Really no small fixes, you need a stronger GPU and that will require a PSU upgrade.
  3. The other problem you have after you upgrade the gpu/psu is that your motherboard was never designed to properly support that cpu.
    The board is only designed to handle up to 95w tdp, if pushed the 8320 can use up to 125w tdp. Thus the motherboard is bottlenecking your cpu. It is also not going to overclock so you are also loosing out on the factory overclocking it does.
