How many frames per second are you getting at what games and what settings?

70-80% usage on a quad core is imho clear sign of cpu bottlenecking. There can't be many games that can fully utilize four threads, personally I don't know any...

Have you tried overclocking the cpu? Though first gen phenoms don't oc much...

Try to get the settings on any game you play as best as possible. Enable everything. And see what happens.
