Default Where is my bottleneck, now?

Considering the following upgrade in CPU:

Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115041

Currently have a Core 2 Duo E6600 OC'd to 3.0GHz with a Zalman.

Also, will my mobo work with the Yorkfield? I seem to recall complaints about this about a year ago.

From looking at the specs of my rig in my signature, is this a wise investment given that it is primarily for games?

I have a tri-boot machine with Windows XP Pro-32 SP3, Windows Vista-32 Home Premium & Windows Vista-64 Home Premium loaded so lots of options on the OS.

Thanks in advance!
