Default Re: Should I go from a gtx 260 to a 285?

Did some 3DMark 06 and Vantage tests on my 285 and actually they didn't go up very much and I'm pretty sure it's my CPU holding me back. I wonder if I'd gain much by replacing this e6600 with a quad core q6600 ya think? However I did play Mirrors Edge and noticed it was actually perfectly smooth now, and Crysis I played at Very High settings @ 1600x1200 and even turned on 8X AA and 16X AF and it ran smooth and fast and I couldn't do that on the GTX 260 so it definitely helped. Here are my comparisons:
