Upgrading my PC

Hello forums,

I have had my pc about 6 years now, and it's about time I upgrade it. My old hardware specs are:
Asus P5kpl-AM SE motherboard
Intel pentium dual core E2200
Geforce 9600 GT
4gb Ram

My processor here is what's really keeping me from playing current games; most FPS run at less than 30 frames. However, in order to change my processor, I'd need to change my motherboard too. And I'll need new ram. So here's what I want to buy:
- i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz
- Corsair Vengeance 8 GB Kit (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 1600 MHz
It'll cost about 430$ (+tax/shipping).
