Smile Christmas Upgrade

Hello all!

I'd just like to ask a few questions about an upgrade I've been thinking about

Currently, I have:
  • CPU: AMD Athlon X4 630
  • Motherboard: Asus M4A785TD-V Evo
  • GPU: 3GB AMD 7950
  • 12 GB RAM (2 x 4 GB and 2 x 2 GB )
I can run all games on high/ultra, but often have to compromise on Anti-Aliasing. Would upgrading the CPU + Motherboard to a 4770K and Asus Z78 Pro help with general performance in gaming, you'd expect an old (ish) CPU like this to bottleneck. I know that it would increase performance of the computer - Link

This is an example of what I currently get in Heaven Benchmark, although, I'm not too sure how reliable that is to make conclusive choices about CPU ...

Side note, I think a new case and CPU cooler #1 or #2 is in order too
