System RAM: 8191 MB
CPU Name: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor (black edition)

My CPU is not OCed with the stock cooler.

Intel Core i5-3570K:

And the motherboard if it matters to anyone ASRock Z77 Extreme4:

Is it worth the almost 400$ upgrade or should I wait ,because if I'm only gonna get a 1-5% upgrade I think I'll wait till the next generation or OC my CPU

Thanks in advance.

    OC your CPU for now and wait for next gen :)

    If don't have an aftermarket cooler yet.. Get something like Hyper 212+/evo and hit 4.0Ghz.
