I'd say get a E8XXX series and a newer graphics card.
That is kind of what I was getting at...I am in no way an expert in building pc's, but from my experience with games....and I have played alot of them I have come to find out that more ram is a better upgrade than faster ram....I mean 4gb pc 800 better than 2gb of faster ram.....your cpu is fine for games....the Video Card is the single most important component for gaming performance....this is only based on gaming performance however....If you need your pc to do benchmarking and the likes....then I am sure the faster ram and more powerful cpu and the likes makes more of a difference.
The cpu is still important for gaming, but you have a dual core overclocked to 3.0 Ghz....that is a good gaming cpu.
I have a core 2 duo at 2.4 Ghz...when i overclock it, I do see a very small increase in my gaming performance....but not very much....my increase in ram and my new video card however....made a nice upgrade in performance
Again...this is only my opinion and I only have my personal experiences to go by...anyway you decide to go you are gonna have a much better pc than you have now...but for PURE GAMING PLEASURE....you are gonna want to upgrade that video card over the cpu in my opinion.
Enjoy your pc, which ever way you decide to upgrade.
