New motherboard!!! MSI 790FX-GD70

Okay so right now I am running:

Motherboard: MSI-K9A2cf-f
CPU: Amd Phenom X4 9500
Ram: 4gigs OCZ Black Widow 1066 DDR2
Video Card: ATI 4870X2
Vista 32bit

I get "appcrash" alot in certain mmo's in really crowded areas, of course this is very annoying. What makes it really annoying is I can play any brand new game out there just fine, but I play mmo's so with me playing AION alot, it is really frustrating when it crashes. Basically though I am buying a new motherboard and processor in my first update the MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD and AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz. Will it be okay until my wallet becomes a little fatter to run the DDR2 ram off of this? I am hoping this will fix my problem because I know the first Phenoms were not any good. After awhile I will up date ram and then video cards. But I feel the problem is the processor. Any thoughts on if this has a shoot on fixing it as well as if running DDR2 ram for a few months will work just fine would greatly help.

  1. that board uses ddr3, so nope
  2. most likely its the cpu, thats not xactly the fastest and most stable out there, get a athlon ii x4 620 or a phenom ii x3 720 and ull be good, what are the temps on ur gcard while gaming btw?
  3. Usually between 45-55 degrees Celsius never higher.
  4. then its the cpu, id suggest a 720, its a tripple, but for gaming its god
