New Build worth it for 7950 Sapphire OE? Old specs inside !

I am thinking whether I should create a new PC to get the most of my 7950.
Right now, my 3dmark score with the free 3dmark 11 edition at performance setting is: 6659 & 7849 w/ my 7950@ 1185/1600

My Current PC SPECS:
Motherboard: M4A88TMUSB3 --->
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T overclocked at 3.5GHZ with stock voltage
Ram: 2 x Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB->
Gpu: Sapphire HD 7950 3GB Overclocked Edition (I still got my 6950 2gb sapphire to reuse if i build a new computer)
Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast TX750M >
HDD: typical 1TB Barracuda Hard disk I got for 50$ - I don't care much for SSD since I have patience on loading times
DVD Drive: Normal average dvd writer and reader

Additional Comments: I need a gaming pc with best feature and best value, i dont care for ssd, and I already have an external bluray reader only drive, so an internal dvd writer would be fine
