My System Specs

1. No.
2. Yes.
3. I'd get a GTX460 at most, or you could even grab a used GTX 260, 4870, or 5770 and then use what leftover money you have to upgrade to some newer parts. The difference should be enough to upgrade to a decent quad-core AM3 or LGA775 system which would solve your CPU bottlenecking problem.
