At your 19X10 resolution with AA the Phenom II you have should be fine, games are more GPU limited than CPU limited these days. (with a few exceptions, and RTS games)

If you play shooters mainly your current cpu will only be a limitation if you add a second 570, for one it's fine. Enjoy, and avoid the Bulldozer. You have a better cpu.
