i would over clock your CPU first

OC your ATI 4890 will not improve your game performance.

Yeah, it's certainly your CPU that is holding you back. You need to OC that thing a lot(not that hard to do) or get a better processor(tell us your motherboard model if you'd prefer that option.) You wont see any real advantage from your new card until you do so.

I agree with both of them:) 

Your CPU is holding you back. A 3+ Ghz OC will give you a very nice boost!
OCing your card won't until your CPU is powerful enough to drive that card to its full potential.
