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.
any Phenom II x4 will run circles around core 2 quads, the 940 kills the Q9550, so that really shows you how C2Qs really compare to newer generations.
