Sins of a Solar Empire bottlenecked by my system?????

Here are the specs:

ASUS P7P55 pro motherboard
Core i5 750 @ 2.66 GHz
Geforce 9800 GT
Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB
4 GB of G.Skill Ripjaw Series DDR3 1600 MHz 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5 volts

In Sins of a Solar Empire I'm dropping frames in some of the larger battles. When I exit the game, I see the CPU usage chart (I downloaded this gadget) has been at almost 100%

Is my i5 not powerful enough to handle this game??? Should I overclock it and how much improvement should I expect???
