New family man, with all money going to everything else, but I have been allowed to upgrade, a little.

I'm mainly using my pc for gaming, a little after effects, and Photoshop on the side. Currently I have

ASRock N68C-GS
AMD Athlon II X4 640
4 Gb DDR 3 (standard cheap ram)
Gigabyte 560 ti 448 Core

I'm really only getting to spend about $350 on an upgrade. My thoughts have been to upgrade the motherboard, and beefing up my ram, but I haven't paid attention to the AMD market enough to make an informed decision, and a lot of my reading time is spent on story books now a days. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Well i did a little looking around, do you think this would be a good bang for buck upgrade? or is there possibly a better option

Asus M5A78L-M LX3
AMD FX-8320 Black Edition
Sniper Series 8GB PC3-14900

just under 300 before taxes
