Best option from here.

Do you guys think it would be worth upgrading my mobo? Looking to get the best performance (FPS) out of my system, And I can't help but feel that something is bottlenecking it.

Or do you think upgrading my RAM is a better option since it is cheap A-data RAM (9-9-9-24)
My specs:

Intel i7 870
8GB DDR3 1333mhz
Seasonic 620W Modular PSU
Gigabyte HD 6950 OC 1gb
Arctic freezer Pro Rev.2
Intel 320 40gb SSD (OS)

CPU: 7.5
RAM 7.5
Both graphics 7.9
HD 7.4

  1. i think no need upgrade .. your Score WEI is balance .. good score
    if you want upgrade just RAM maybe Corsair / GSkill Ripjaw
  2. WEI scores are a horrible reason to upgrade. What are your frame rates in games.
  3. If you want more FPS in games your best option is SLI if you can or go to a 2gb card. If you want improved load time you could go for a SandForce 2000 based SSD, however this shouldn't make much difference to FPS. As for memory I would suggest Corsair, Mushkin, Kingston, or OCZ.
    Your other parts are more then sufficient they aren't much of a bottleneck.

    For a little perspective my machine and WEI numbers.
