Your CPU is letting you down, otherwise this setup would be near-perfect. On mine my gfx card is letting me down, but it is still very good.

Intel Quad-Core Q6600 2.4Ghz
Asus Striker Extreme (nForce Chipset 690i (I think))
OCZ Gaming Xstream 700w PSU
4GB RAM (Samsung, can't remember the speed)
nVidia Geforce 768MB 8600GTS

Will probably upgrade in a couple of years.

I disagree, I thought about getting a q6600 but The 3.0 instead of 2.4 is more important then the 2 extra cores considering nothing is quad threaded. I looked at benchmark comparisons and most people found that the e8400 performed better in games then the q6600 because games aren't written for 4 cores.

True, for gaming the dual-core is better for most games, but some of the newer games do support quad-core. But I do a lot of video editing, photoshopping/3d modelling so it makes a big difference to have a quad core for me.
