Im sure you wanna upgrade the processor before you upgrade your graphic card. :-)
The Core2Quad is an old lady and is bottlenecking the GTX560.
She is an old bird that still kicks ass. My Q6600 still pushes the info to mu GPU at 1080p in 64 player BF3.

@Brad As for the red dots, I'm not sure. Is the card overclocked? Sounds like the GPU is toast. I would recommend getting a GPU with at least 2Gb's of vram. especially if you want higher resolutions and eye candy. But at only 1080p you should be OK.

Have another GPU you can test with? The CPU is long in the tooth but until you run into situations where your CPU is struggling and your GPU is bored you'll be fine with it. Just turn down the settings until you can afford to upgrade your entire system. Haswell is coming.
