My System Specs

Default

Your device manager screenshots look fine to me although I'm not familar with the "Asmedia" controller. Gaming is for sure bottlenecked by the GPU, and for "multitasking" I'd look to software / BIOS / partition alignment issues on the SSD.
For surfing the Internet and "general use" however, if you heavily OC'd the E8400, the difference in performance won't be much (e.g. 1.0 seconds to load a browser with lots of tabs instead of 1.5).

You'll really have to be more specific as to where things feel slower: Startup of applications? Choppy graphics on the desktop while not gaming?
