Yes, you will find a performance boost going from the Asus to the DFI... While the PSU is OK, it will be an item to watch as with the DFI you can make greater demands on the PSU when OC'ing.

The VX modules will come to life as they can be driven harder than the 3.0v from the Asus thus gaining greater MHz at those tight timings. - Add some active cooling.

The FX will have more to do and have a greater Vcore available.

HDD - you can always use more space and that is a nice, reasonably fast one too.
