How can I tell if my processor is bottlenecking my graphics card? I've got an amd athlon II x4 640 and a MSI GTX460 1gb

Any game I play, the CPU never reaches anywhere close to %100 usage on any core...So upgrading my processor would have practically no impact on my gaming, correct?

Easy way to check, turn down the detail settings in game, if your FPS increases its GPU limited which is what you want.

@Hunter315: I never thought that since I instantly put the game on max everything. Makes total sense, thank you!
