Is my CPU bottlenecking my GPU?

Hello... I think my CPU bottlenecking your GPU because, when I play games with my geforce GTX 560 TI I get around 20 to 25 fps really sucks. When I had my old crappy gtx 220 I got around 20 FPS. So a card that's a lot better only gives me 5 more fps? Here are my specs. Operating System MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 CPU Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.50GHz Yorkfield 45nm Technology RAM 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 399MHz (6-6-6-18) Motherboard ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG5270 (LGA775) Graphics VG2230wm (1680x1050@59Hz) 1024MB GeForce GTX 560 Ti (nVidia) Hard Drives 733GB Seagate ST3750528AS ATA Device (SATA) If I need a better CPU can you link me to it on newegg the best one but cheap and still do the job well you know what I mean. Also I will need a new motherboard I will need a link to a new motherboard if that's the case. Just another thing I have a 520 watt power supply. DON'T GIVE ME !@#$ ANSWERS LIKE " get better CPU" WOW THAT CPU SUCKS or some !@#$ like that. Just send me a few links of a CPU I should get and a motherboard.

Well, it's not that cut and dried. Are you sure you're running the same game at the same quality level and at the same resolution... More

The problem is your CPU. Is not powerful to handle the other stuff. I have a good CPU that costs -100 $. Intel Pentium E5700 3GHz. Hope that helped you :)

Yep a upgrade is need it a asus p8z68-v pro and a i5-2500k at tiger direct good prices and faster shipping, kind of hard finding a socket lga 775 online and some of the major pc parts place and it gets expensive going to other websites looking for a upgrade.
