Is my CPU bottlenecking my pc?

My rig:
ASUS M5A97 R2.0
CHIEFTEC CFT 600 14CS 600W
AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4Ghz (no oc)
Sapphire HD 7850 1GB
KINGSTON 8GB HyperX XMP Grey DDR3 1600MHz CL9 KIT

I recently bought a fullHD monitor and im not getting good enough fps in my games. im thinking of upgrading to a fx 6350 or 8350. will it make my games run significantly smoother?

  1. define "not enaugh FPS", @ what settings?
  2. could be a vram problem? and like last poster said, at what setting/what games?
  3. Battlefield 3: max 56 fps avg. 28 on ultra settings
    Tribes Ascend: max 62 fps avg. 47.164 maxed out.
    TF2: max 62 fps avg. 53.980 maxed out.
  4. i also checked my vram usage with gpu-z. my ddedicated memory usage was around 870-990, never went above 1000, the dynamic memory usage was 300-500 mb.(i dont know the difference between these two)
