FPS suffering due to CPU?

Hello!

I'm wondering if my FPS (Battlefield 3) is suffering due to my dated CPU. I currently have C2Q Q6600 @ 2.4 GhZ, but running with a GTX 580 GPU.
8GB of RAM, and a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P motherboard.

Is it time for motherboard / CPU / RAM upgrades?

  1. It's being bottlenecked, but if you overclock that Q6600 it will be on par with the i5-2500k in gaming.
  2. I'd upgrade the CPU, battlefield 3 wrecks havoc on older CPU's. my phenom II 945 OC'd @3.5ghz suffered pretty bad on multiplayer. After I upgraded to my FX-8120 my FPS jumped up significantly.
