the 650 2gb is a little limited on power, I would save up and get a GTX660 which wipes the floor with it, or get a Radeon for a similar price thats more powerful, the mid range radeons are generally better power for the money at mid range level. the same goes for your FX CPU, if you can get an i5 2500k, or if price is out of your budget try getting a 2nd or 3rd gen i3 for around the same money. I know its a step down in cores but they benchmark for gaming at around the same oddly.

I've also heard whisperings that the FX chips have issues with certain games and wont play them.

could you post how much it would cost you? also, mind you that fx4170 and 650 would struggle in games on your 1080p monitor specially in demanding games.
