What to upgrade in order to increase gaming performance?

Hello-

My current build is as follows:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 2.66GHz
4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM
EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 460 1GB GDDR5 (Overclocked a bit)

Which of these parts should I upgrade to help me out in games like DayZ and such? I get a bunch of FPS already but I want to tune up the graphical settings. I know the C2Q is basically the top I can get with a Socket T processor, but anything else I can do?

Cheers.

    Awh, I was hoping there was some way without upgrading the mobo.

    Thanks.
