Default Any way to refresh "power" of my pc?

Hi guys! I guess the anserw is a big no but anyway.
I am mostly playing on 360 but lack of antyaliasing and low res in couple of games are unbearable...

My pc isnt all that bad, even though Its almost 4 years old (gpu 3yo) but it hadnt failed on me and its still going quite strong
My friend got new pc last week. i3 3,06, 4gb kingston, gt240 1gb and he scores 8k in 3dmark 2006 while I do 10k
I did tried unigine heaven demo and its 20 fpsish 1680x1050 high on dx10 (8800 dont have dx11)

Maybe oc cpu a little more? Or maybe oc my 8800gt inno3d(which is already stock oc edition)
about 50 C degress on both cpu cores and 50-60 gpu btw.
My spec is in the sig. I am using 7 32bit with all the latest drivers.

I'm a little confused by your post. I'm assuming you want to get more performance out of your rig?

I'd start by upgrading that chip. It's a first gen C2D and while it was amazing when it came out it's nothing now.

If your boards supports it one of these would be a huge increase in performance for little cash...

One of these would be a nice jump over you 8800gt without breaking the bank as well

Yes. I want to get more performance out of my CURRENT rig, but I don't want to buy anything yet until year or so

Well you're probably at around the max OC you could reasonably expect out of that chip

The best way round is to do the market survey in the computer hardware industry. KVM switch
