Bottleneck?

Hey everyone. I purchased a GTS 250 a while back, and I have never been really impressed with it's performance. I expect more out of it, I was wondering if it was my CPU that was not good enough to work side by side with my GPU. My specs are in the drop down menu below this post. thanks

It would seem so.. while your processor is by no means bad, I remember having a X2 4400 like 5 years ago or something. It might be time to upgrade your processor

Yeah, perhaps upgrade your processor if you want to get the best out of it.

Bottleneck?
My buddy recently just bought a GTX 560... He only has a core 2 duo @ 2.66GHZ right now, so I was considering upgrading to a Q6600, (quad core) Am I wrong to think that his Dual Core is bottle-necking the GPU? Good upgrade yes/no?
