So i built a PC a long time ago.... it still runs every thing "ok" however when i want to stream its pretty much choking my system to about 35 fps. I want to upgrade however im thinking with my current hardware i might just need a complete over haul. Being the best forum for this sort of thing on the interwebs i was wondering if you guys could help! my budget would be £1000 for upgrades.
My current system specs are:

Case : Thermaltake armour MX
MOBO: Rampage Extreme ( the first board they brought out )
cpu : Intel core(TM) Quad cpu q6600 @ 2.4 Ghz
Ram : 4GB DDR3 Dual channel OCZ ( Max bandwidth 533 Mhz )
Graphics card : Radeon HD 4870 x2 ( 1GB on board )
Sound card: some hunk of crap bundled on the motherboard with a supreme FX xI interface card
Hard drive : one external usb 2 TB, and one internal 500 mb Bog standard HD... nothing fancy
