GTS 250 bottleneck?

Hey everyone I was just wondering if I was bottlenecking since I'm pretty sure I can get more out of my card. My specs are:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2.3GHz
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
XFX GeForce GTS 250 @ 800MHz

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?

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
