My System Specs

Default Skyrim performance bottleneck help

Hello, I just recently helped a friend upgrade their video card to a 2 gig 6950 for the purposes of skyrim/diablo2/bf3. I was over tweaking it out and i found that the frame rate was really really low in open areas only. Could this be due to a cpu bottleneck? They are using an old x2 250 and I was wondering if upgrading to a quad core 9xx would potentially eliminate the bottleneck.

Other system data:

8 gig low latency memory
wd caviar black hdd
ax850 psu

Thank you for your time.
