My CPU bottlenecking my GPU ?

I have a Old Rusty PC with Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 on Stock Clock n' Cooling and 4GB Ram , I decided to upgrade from Nvidia GT240 to XFX HD 7770 Core Edition .

Well , When I was playing NFS Rivals , I observed many Lags then I tried to play it on Lowest Possible , Again there were lags .

These lags are because of my CPU , GPU or because of Ram ?

Will upgrading my CPU will help ?

  3. The best CPU you can upgrade to is a Core 2 Quad Q9650 which should give you better performance in gaming.
  4. Try overclocking your cpu to 3 GHZ.
  5. Remember to update your BIOS to the latest version (F3) before you upgrade.

    Check which version you have now using CPU-Z and if you have version F1 or F2, upgrade to F3 which can be download here - http://download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/BIOS/motherboard_bios_ga-g41m-combo_f3.exe
