What I mean by OS and moniter bound(still don't know what his res is) is the more current features and higher resolutions you run on current high end video cards lessens the amount you're cpu bottlenecks it. Heck an oc'd Q6600 can still outpace a similarly clocked Phenom II X4, which some on hear wouldn't consider much of a bottleneck. Even if his only hits 3.2GHz he should be fine.

To correct myself in my previous post, if you are not currently getting close to atleast 3x(not 2X like i said) your old card you have other problems,likely driver, than your cpu being a bottleneck.
