been a while since I've updated any part of my PC and some games are getting a little choppy and freezes sometimes. Not the latest games but games such as B&S, Vindictus, and even emulator games.
Got:
G.Skill RipjawsX 8GB DDR-3 1866mHz
AMD FX8320 Black Edition 8 Core
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

Could you guys suggest some new RAM's which is compatible with these? or is it better to get new CPU and motherboard?

Samsung 840.........how did that get into the mix?
Are you using it for anything?
If it's not being used you might want to get it out of the mix.

Your never going to turn that machine into a high end gamer.
Best your going to do is bump it up.
It's your call if you want to spend bucks on it.

Free stuff...........run a check disk on the OS ssd.
Run a defrag and check disk on the seagate.
