    If you want to swap CPU, motherboard model must be known. Also, if MB is good enough, overclocking might be possible. Memory speed and amount?

    Video card is slow for gaming. What PSU you have?

    I admit I am biased towards Intel but I would just rebuild and only reuse the 840 Evo. And even then for a gaming pc, it can be tough to use 120GB for much more than a boot drive.. I don't know how you gathered your specs but you should be able to get a better idea with a free program called Speccy. Download from Piriform's website. You could still sell your old rig and put it towards the new one, or keep it and build a NAS.
