What should i upgrade for better gaming performance?

Hi, my computer specs are

Motherboard: CG1330
CPU: AMD Phenom ii x6 1035t
Video card: ATI Radeon HD 5750
RAM: 8gb
PSU: Corsair TX650
Monitor: 1920x1080


I can play games like sc2, dota2, civ5, cs:go at maximum settings.. but in other games like nether or high paced fps games I get a bit of stutter. I'm not sure which of my hardware is bottlenecking my computer's performance.

I was thinking of buying a new video card but I'd like a second opinion first.
Thanks

More about upgrade gaming performance
  1. I was thinking of buying an HD 7790 and then crossfiring it with my 5750.
    7790 looks like its more powerful than 7750/6670 plus its also cheaper though I don't know why.
    But I'm not even sure if it's possible to crossfire with my current hardware/mobo.
    Does anyone have an idea?

    Oh and my budget is around $150

    That's not possible.

  4. What game are you looking for more performance in?

    Well nothing in particular but I want to upgrade anyhow since I've noticed in some games that require a lot of texture rendering like Skyrim & Nether my fps would drop down when in action or when turning your character at maximum settings.
    I guess I just want to prepare for future games so my computer would be able to handle them better.
  6. I think I'll just get a 7850, but one question though, does the ram of a video card matter for my rig?
    There's 7850 with 1gb of ram and another more expensive with 2gb.

    Ya V ram is important these days. I would go with 2gb... 1 is just too little in my book.
