When did you upgrade? Your q8300 isn't a new card, and it was released a good year and a half before Starcraft 2 was released. IMO it's really at the end of its life.

I might be wrong but it seems to me like your CPU might form a bottleneck, so you won't get as much out of your GPU. Speculation however.
