I guess the title of the topic is self explanatory.

If it matters, my PSU is 575W.

Thanks!

In some games that can make use of more than 2 cores, (particularly at higher resolutions), yes a little bit. But theres big bottlenecks and small bottlenecks. Lots of factors that go into it. More information is needed. Like what games, what resolution? And... what kind of PSU is it? If its a crappy brand/model I'd consider replacing it.. wattage is one of many factors in determining what makes a quality PSU. This is important not so much for bottleneck issues, but the longevity of your components, as crappy PSUs have terrible voltage regulation and can burn out components.
