Yes, your graphics card is a bottleneck. You should ook at updrading your Gfx card. You would find NVidia 470 or ATI 5850 helpful in obtaining the resolution you wish with decent framerates and good details. You may have to go higher or into SLI/Crossfire to gett the 16aa and 16af.

Your gfx card is indeed a bottleneck...
Please mention your budget. Which PSU do you have?

An HD5850 will easily max out games at that resolution but even HD5770 can run games at that resolution. :)

That video card is a real piece of poo compared to the rest of your system.

I'd also recommend one of the 58xx series unless that's out of your price range.
