Hello to everyone in the comunity

So, as the title say, i want to change the CPU and Mobo, (currently im with a M3A78 and a Phenom II X4 810 @2.60Ghz).
Its a gamming rig, i currently buy a Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti OC version, and put 8GB of Ram DDR2 @800, Asus 550w, and playing at 1920x1080p. The CPU is dropping my fps, the card is SO powerfull, it can run every game at Ultra high settings. And the mobo is limitating to, cause is PCI-E 2.0 and the card is 3.0.

So, are two options:

1. Buying a AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @3.2Ghz and leaving the same mother (yes, the cpu is compatible with mobo)


2. Buying a new CPU and Mother, but, in my country pc components are expensive.. so i need something good enough but no THAT expensive.. (Arround 300 - 350 - 400 Dolars)

¿Wich one you think is the best option?
