    I have an ASUS P5K-SE with a:
    Kentsfield Q6600 2.66 GHz OC'd to 3.01 GHz.
    Very stable but I think my video card might be limiting my frame rates and
    overall performance when gaming.
    I'd like to get a little more fluidity with my graphics.
    Will upgrading to a 9800 GT smoothen things out or am I already maxed out
    for what my video can deliver with the 8600GT?
    Thanks for any suggestions
