I currently have an intel core 2 duo @1.8ghz and 2GB of ddr2-667 ram and intel ingrated graphics. It laagggss very horribly in L4D2, COD and Combat Arms. (Approximately 2fps) Even my pentium 4 system can play smoothly. I want to upgrade the video card, as I think it is causing all the problems. Which video card should I choose, without getting bottlenecked too badly by the processor. I was thinking about an HD 5670, so will it bottleneck my computer alot?

I'm assuming you have a E6300, the older 1.86ghz one. Those easily run 3ghz, I had one at 3.4ghz with an aftermarket cooler.
Id recommend at least a 5770 or GTX460 for newer games and another 2gb of ram wouldn't hurt either.
Agree, with that Chip (E6300) you can OC it up to 2.7GHz WITHOUT raising the VCore and stay stable. (If that's true your cpu is E6300)
What resolution do you play at? PSU? brand? model? Motherboard? Budget?
