In keeping with what's been said above - are you sure it's your CPU that's holding you back? It's pretty rare (but not impossible) for that to happen with a quad at 3.6GHz, especially at higher resolutions like yours. Try playing the games with Task Manager open in the background and see if you're maxing any cores out.
