His board has triple channel support, unlike the dual channel most of us have.


And to the OP yes upgrade your video card, I purchased a 7950 w/ Boost and for the money its one of the best cards u can buy, plus if AMD are still running the promo, u get Far Cry3, Hitman Absolution, Sleeping Dogs FREE, ($170) and 20% off MOH but don't waste ur money on that. If you prefer nVidia, grab a 670.
 
the above link will tell you how to fix it. i did it myself and it works 100%.
it takes all of 5 mins to do and 1s done your fps will jump to 30+ as long as you dont go mad with settings above what your card can handle...

Im running the same processor with dual 570's, I get great framerates at 2560 x 1440 on max settings in batman (AA x2)

Upgrade your graphics card

EDIT :- I upgraded to 12 GB ram, but 6 GB was plenty. I only got 12 because it was cheap.
