    Default is it time to upgrade

    I hope I'm in the right place to ask this question I currently have rampage 11 extreme, Intel 975 extreme o/c 4.35 2000 speed RAM, GTX 680 super clocked, Corsair 1200 W digital power supply and watercooled. My question, is it time to upgrade and would it be worth it? I use this computer for X-plane10 and I'm not satisfied with the frame rate and I am not sure whether it is my computer or their program. I use most settings on high not extreme and HDR rendering and the frame rate drops below 20 when trying to render clouds.when I use si-software sandra the benchmark is excellent and within the top 5% so I'm just not sure what to do at this point.
