A GTX260 is much more powerful than a GTS250 - it can handle BFBC2 on HIGH with 16xAF and no MSAA @ 1080p perfectly fine. Not to mention it can hold it's own in a lot of current games and blow away games from 2009 and earlier. It's hardly for running games at what would be considered a 'low resolution' of 1366 with quality settings on 'low'.....
Triple-core processors are perfectly suitable for gaming and could offer (if found/purchased) at the right price a truly fantastic gaming experience. Remember, there are still few games that take 'true' advantage of more than two physical cores.
