So here are my current specs:
none oc'd

i5 760 @ 2.8 ghz w/ stock cooler
MSI HAWK ATI 5770 HD
EVGA P55 LE Mobo
2x2GB RipJaw Sticks DDr3 1600
Western Digital 250 GB Green Caviar
TP-LINK TL-WN781ND IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Wireless Adapter
NZXT M59

I've been reading around and discovered the term bottlenecking, I want to know if any of my hardware is affecting my overall performance. Thanks! I'm on Win7 Ult 64 Bit btw. Thanks again!

Biggest bottleneck I see is the hard drive. But that's typical for most systems. However your is a green drive, which is more focussed on saving energy.

I suggest you check out an SSD, preferrably from OCZ or Intel. I like the Vertex II 100 or 120 GB in the $200 range.
If you are absolutely opposed to the idea, then there is a samsung 2TB on newegg that is here for $80:

Whenever you have a computer, there's going to be at least one part in it that bottlenecks the rest of the system. That's just the way it goes.
I would agree that the slowest component you have is the hard drive, followed by your Video card.
