AMD A8-5600k bottleneck a R7850HD DD?

i purchased this computer as a whole. ive been messing around a bit tweaking basic settings, reducing process,ect.

OS Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
AMD A8-5600K 62 °C
Trinity 32nm Technology
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 800MHz (9-9-9-24)
ASRock FM2A75M-DGS (CPUSocket)
HP LA2006 (1600x900@60Hz)
AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series

my question IS the threads topic, but i had some strange results myself that i couldnt figure;
after my first couple weeks of owning the pc i started testing its performance a bit and succesfully overclocked my video card with msi afterburner and got a decent increase(in the testing application, i didnt notice it ingame really)
BUT now i cant get it above 60fps. 750-1100 on the core clock has no performance increase, same with 1100-1450.
before if i maxed it out it would avg around 74fps

the cpu usage used to fluctuate and spike pretty high but is solved after turning off some background process'.
i made 100% sure nothing VITAL was disabled. and this was all done after the oc'ing issue mentioned above.

atm im having a LOT of network problems. huge lag spikes/high ms/timeing out. a few small pc related problems as well, nothing i cant figure out myself/google :D

im still fairly new to the whole pc scene so im still leaning..forgive me my info is lacking. ty

  1. Your specs look fairly decent, but it most likely either your CPU as you said or your motherboard may be creating a bottle neck for the graphics card.
