It's not as powerful in what way? What are you using the system for?

Gaming, i wanna try and get ultra in most games with a high solid framerate. I know that was abit of a longshot with a build like this but its results have been underwelming at best.

Then upgrade the graphics card. What's your budget?

I dont really have a set budget im looking for suggestions to see all my options. (i can build a pc but picking out parts is a bit iffy for me)

Well, if you want to play on ultra settings and get decent frame rates, you're looking at an R9 290/290X or a 780/780 ti.

Is that gonna work with the rest of my build? (i only ask because my motherboard cant work with a cpu newer then an i5)
