no need to take the phenom 2's if u can get a q9550 and overclock it then u would be finr....no need to move to a new platform....
and ya as every one said that cpu is no longer fit for gaming.....if u want to compare the game results(i too have gtx 460) just pm me and then u will see how much ur gtx 460 is bottlenecked by ur pentium d......

Take it from the king of bottle-necking (up until last week I was running a Pentium D 2.3ghz dual core lol) It's your CPU. Just because it has 4 cores that doesn't mean it's fast . I recommend that you upgrade you CPU and you will be running a pretty decent system!


EDIT: I figured I would add this just in case. I have found another big factor to this is how fast your hard drives are. I don't know what model you have exactly other than you said they were Seagate Barracuda, but hard drives can play a huge roll in a computers speed. In layman's terms your CPU might be fast, and your RAM might be fast, but what good is that if you hard drives can't read and write the information quick enough. Good CPU + Good RAM + Fast Hard drives = Solid Build. I hope this helps.
