Thanks so much for your help guys! I started mapping out a new backup system since I had a pretty good idea it was being bottle necked.
I'm just going to go with an intel board and chip.
ASUS P8z77-v LGA 1155 intel z77 intel Motherboard
I5 or I3 processor (I've heard Ivy bridge was a must have.)
Thank you all for the help! Most forums are not this prompt or helpful!
