HT was off for the test. Your 250 MHz isn't going to make a big difference when it comes to bottlenecking. Adding extra cores isn't going to solve your problem either, games hardly use more than 4 cores at the moment.

I'm not sure how you say that the 5970 can't be compared to a 6990. The Radeon 6000 series is merely a revamped 5000 and shares most of the same architecture. Regardless of that, the 6990 has more bandwidth and pushes pixels much faster. If a Phenom II can't keep up with a 5970, how could it possibly keep up with an even faster set of GPUs?

You can stay in denial all you want but it's not going to fix anything. Phenom IIs are significantly slower than i7 or SB chips clock for clock, so you'd have to OC to something crazy like 6 GHz to remove the bottleneck.
