Are you sure the 6pin power connector is properly attached?
Update driver with the latest one?

Well, usually you can "feel" it whether you attached it right or wrong...
BTW, what is your PSU? brand? model?

Nope, the CPU wont hold you back to this extent.

What games/res are you playing at however?

Check your CPU usage with task-manager when you're playing the game.

ARMA 2, IIRC is one of the CPU-intensive games, and your CPU might be holding things back.

i do hope that 450w psu is a corsair/silverstone/ocz.

you can't blame the processor as according to you, you're 9800gt was producing better fps than the 460.
