Default Re: Bad CPU hurting GTX 295?

I'm getting 20179 in 3DMark Vantage running in Performance at 1920X1200. My 3DMark 2006 scores, however, are really low. I'm getting only 16617 with the GTX 295 vs. 15800 with my GTX 280. All my games run well now though. It seems more and more reviewers are using quad-core CPUs in their reviews. Dual-core is on the way out. That's why I was looking at upgrading to a quad-core CPU. Also, more and more multi-threaded games are out with many more to come.
Core i7 2600 @ 3.7GHz
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 941 MHz
1TB Seagate HDD 7200 RPM 32MB Cache
16X BluRay-RW drive
Dell 30-inch U3014 monitor
Dell speakers
