i would try to get the links but that is the name of htem i cant find most of the parts on newegg anymore so cant give you links that is the invoice from my order when i got everything
 
Ok, I thought that list was a wishlist you drew up, didnt specify it was current gear hehe,
Ok, best way to get the most out of that is grab a good cooler and clock that 955 up as Hacker suggested, adding a ddr3 plate isn't going to be a magic cure performancewise and youll need to buy some new ram for it too obv,
Clock that up and save for a newer build, then when ready see whats the best build for your money, we'll still be here to help

For the money/performance you'd get from upping a 955 to a 965 its pointless and if your considering a mobo, why not a whole new build?
Intel's 2500k is a good gaming buid right now, or you could wait to see what Amd have lined up next, hopefully should be released soon,
but again, the best thing for your current rig is a little clocking on the cpu and gfx

thats a great little setup if you want some extra performance, then i would reccommend getting another 5870 and Crossfiring it with your current one, that would give you a dramatic performance boost, but seriously at 1080P a single 5870 and a phenom 955 would max out on almost all games today.

if your scared of BIOS overclocking then Easytune 6 from gigabyte is a great peice of software which will allow you to overclock:

or AMD overdrive:
