You can overclock the CPU a little to help.

Your probably ok, but there is a simple way to find out if your cpu is a bottleneck.
Run a gpu benchmark and record the score. Then overclock your cpu 200mhz and run the benchmark again. If you scored higher on the overclocked run, then you were cpu bottlenecked.
