  1. Best answer
    The newest games at higher resolutions are nearly always GPU bottlenecked, especially if at 1080P or above, although some cpu scaling occurs even at 1080P...; a dual core is adequate, but will likely always be at somewhat of a deficit compared to tri/quad core processors, but, eventually, even CF Radeons become too slow for some of the most demanding games, like Crysis. Perhaps a single 6970 might outperform the current pair, depending on your desired resolution.
  2. For gaming the HD5450 is your biggest bottleneck a better GPU (based on monitor resolution) would help. 150GB is a small HDD today.
