Are you kidding?

Not outdated at all. It is still running hot. I mean, the CPU+mobo. If you want to update, you may consider a new GFX card like some Fermi GeForce 5xx (seeing that you already have nvidia), So you can run directX11.

Then, buy yourself an SSD, it's really, really worth it.

After these upgrades you have a kick-bottom rig.

If you feel the urge to upgrade (I mean your CPU+mobo), you should rather wait until next year when Ivy Bridge will be released on LGA2011. You have no interest whatsoever to upgrade CPU/mobo now.
