Upgrade Suggestions / Bottleneck Questions

Hello guys! just registered here the site.

well there will be two questions in my thread.

1. is my processor bottlenecking my GPU?

here's my system

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
NVIDIA GT 630 DDR3

i noticed after playing Dota 2 my GPU's Load is maxed at 81%.

2nd question.

i am planning to buy one of these two processors. which of them will give me more performance than my current processor?

AMD Athlon II X2 270
AMD Athlon II X3 450

also i have an option on buying used Phenom II X2 555 BE. but i have no plans of unlocking the cores. since i only have an entry level Deep Cool Beta 200ST

TIA!
