PC Specs:
GTX 560 TI
ASUS M4A88T-M Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X2 Black CPU
600W PSU

I'm just wondering what CPU and Motherboard would be a good combo for gaming and increasing my PC's performance. Thanks.

I would just try to see if the board allows for an unlock of one or more cores on that cpu or upgrade it to an p2 x4/6 if available. If you really want something that packs a punch then settle for an i5 k version and then overclock ;)
