If i were you i would overclock the cpu and buy a better gpu.More ram won t help you much if you can t even use it properly. A r9 380/x depends on the price would be good with that build.Or if you don t mind waiting you can try waiting for pascal or polaris to be released.

Well it might be a small bottleneck, but not too noticeable. Also I've see you got a nice overclock which quiet help to reduce any bottleneck :)
So I don't think you should worry much about it ;)

I've used this processor with an Nvidia 550Ti, Nvidia 760, and now a Radeon HD7850. I don't blame my GPU's but my CPU is the obvious reason for very, very obvious reason for low FPS in most games(Far Cry 3-4, GTA 4, and even Half-Life.)DNB

Can I combine this CPU with (almost) any GPU high gamma today, and play at least 60 fps (almost) every game? Which GPU would be a perfect combination for this?. I'm not looking ultra gaming settings, just medium/high.

R9 270 Could run everything on medium/high. It wouldn't bottleneck this CPU, and it shouldn't be too expensive

Yes. There will be a pretty big bottleneck. Anyway atm there arent so many games that requires more than you have. In future you will see that bottleneck will hit hard with your CPU.
