I know it's not the best way to benchmark the performance of my new build, but I'd like to know how similar systems compare to the windows experience index I have for now until I figure out what I'll do to benchmark it properly.

WEI: http://i48.tinypic.com/wbytm0.jpg

Specs:
Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
Phenom II X4 955
Asus M4A78T-E, 790GX (Graphics are on-board)
A-Data Gaming Series 2 GB DDR3 1600
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

Thanks in advance for any help and/or advice. :)

Hope you don't mind the wait

Look at a few of the Tom's articles on cpus and graphics cards for some ideas on benchmarks.

That 3300 is sort of choking your system if you're basing on that score alone (which as you already said isn't the best way) I take it you're a non-gamer, or low-level gamer?

Low-level gaming, though mostly I'd be using my PC for graphic design for school. I figure what I probably need to do is add at least another 2GB of memory. Plus I'm thinking of adding a graphics card, maybe an HD 5750.

Do remember that if you're using 32-bit OS, then the last bit of RAM won't help.

If you're upgrading graphics, 5670, 5750 or 5770 is my choice.

You are partially correct.

32-bit OS's only see 3.25 GB of RAM total. There are, however, some boards out there that can extend the memory addressing using memory hole relocation to 4GB.
