What should I upgrade next?

Well I'm the kind of Gamer that loves to see Games at their highest settings and have FPS(above 30). I Still can't Max Crysis 1 and 2, Battlefield 3(Multiplayer-23fps), Metro 2033, Batman Arkham City(can't play DX11, even after update). I think my motherboard is holding me back for some reason or my CPU. So what do you think I should Upgrade. Have to Change 1 at a time, what do you think would set the biggest Impact?

PC components:
PSI CyborgX Gaming Case - Black /w Blue Light(looks cool)

Windows 7 64 bit

AMD Athlon™ II X4 635 Quad-Core CPU - 3.0Ghz (OC)

Sapphire HD 6950 2GB Dirt 3 Edition 840/1325 (OC)

2x500GB Hard Drive 7200rpm

4 GB DDR2-800 PC6400 Memory Module

Liquid CPU Cooling System w/ 120mm Radiator

Motherboard ASUS M4A785-M AMD 785G Hybrid CrossFire Chipset

700 Watt -- Power Supply - SLI Ready.

    You need a newer motherboard (with at least 2 PCIe slots, which would allow two graphics cards), which will require a new CPU, and new DDR3 RAM. You can use the 6950, but you'll need 1 motherboard, 1 CPU, and a 1 set of RAM (since you are using W7x64, you may want 2 sticks of RAM with 4GB each).

    I agree, I think I'll get the Motherboard First w/ Ram, then next the CPU
