Possible Bottleneck

Just bought a pc off newegg it is not preforming how I am pretty sure it should and I think there might be a possible bottleneck somewhere here are my specs if someone could look over these and give me some feedback as to where to look or what needs changed I would really appreciate it. There might be nothing wrong and I am expecting more then I should be but I do not know.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor

Motherboard: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO

Graphics Card: EVGA 01G-P3-1366-TR GeForce GTX 460 SE

Memory: A-DATA Gaming Series 4GB

HD: Western Digital Caviar Black

What is slow? The 6 core Thubans are not great gaming processors and the 460 is an SE not a "real" GTX460 so I could see where that could slow you down in games.

I understand that it just seems like the specs in here call for more then what I am getting it is really nothing seriously just minor lag issues in certain games that there should be none so I just wanted to double check to see I i missed something in my spec layout possibly cause a unknown bottleneck

The 460SE is likely your problem then. What resolution you play at? If its below 1920 x 1080 the SE is probably enough but for true HD resolutions the GTX460 1GB is about as low as I would go.( I have one )

Lag could be your connection. But your PC isn't built for gaming at highest settings. It'll match roughly a Radeon 5770 or so.
