How to reduce bottlenecking without OC

It is personally impossible for me to OC my cpu as i know nothing and have read many tutorials but to no avail. I am planning to buy a GTX 460 1 GB and a PSU, and buying a new CPU and Ram is too much on my budget. So, can someone please tell me how to reduce bottlenecking without OC'ing my CPU.

Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo e6750 2.66 ghz
2 GB DDR2 667 mhz
Max Res: 1440x900

It's pretty much impossible to make your CPU faster without overclocking it and making it run faster. I'd just wait for your new card to come and see if you actually run into performance problems. I think a lot of people worry too much about stuff like this. CPU's can do an amazing amount of work these days...and are rarely a bottleneck in a system.

Although we don't now what GPU you had before the GTX 460. You should be fine.

Your performance increase will be substantial, even with your CPU. Don't worry

No, I'm not absolutely sure. But more than likely, many games won't push the GPU to it's absolute limit, which means that your CPU won't be at it's limit either. And if your CPU did slow down the game somewhat, you can adjust those settings a bit to reduce the load on your CPU...while still gaining immensely from having the higher powered GPU. Considering how few games really take advantage of quad core technologies, and you are are running on a Core 2 Duo at 2.6Ghz....for many games and such you should be A-OK.
