Welcome to the forum.
Make sure that that is the 125W version of the 965.
Make sure that that RAM's latencies (may be referred to as timings) are lower than 8.
Switch the PSU for a Corsair 550W VX or Antec Earthwatts.
Consider switching to a better cooled case such as the Antec 300.
So you are aware, that computer will crush anything you play at that resolution, the next thing you upgrade should be your monitor.

Thx for your response. And yes that is the 125w version of the 965. and the guy in the shop will help me with the RAM latencies so am not gonna bother you here. But i wasnt expecting that the games will crush on this ress. :(  that means +200 euros for new monitor.
