Pebkac. CPU bottleneck.

Definitely dump the E6300 and get a Q8300 or above. You'll be set with no bottleneck then.

Not quite, according to some reviews at larger resolutions is not a CPU problem anymore but just GPU issue for Crysis fps gameplay.

A CPU upgrade would bring only a modest FPS increase, 2-4 FPS.

No.

This guy has an E6300. A CPU upgrade for THAT would bring much more performance.

In that test they're using modern CPU's that are still good performers. Going from say an E6300 to a Q9550 would be a MASSIVE increase in performance.

Crysis is one thing, but other games that utilize more cores/CPU power such as BFBC2 would benefit greatly.
