I mean it'll run not-so-demanding games fine at 1080p low settings (it comes close to my GTX 765M) but don't expect amazing performance.

I mean, is the bottleneck very severe? The cpu seems to be bottlenecking the graphics card

There is a bottleneck, and it's kinda severe.

I found an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 with an unknown motherboard as a bundle. How does that fare?

Board's very old.  Can't even support Core 2 Quads: http://www.asrock.com/MB/ATI/775Twins-HDTV R2.0/index.asp#CPU

 

Looks like your current C2D processor right now is the best processor you can get for this rig unless you can find an Core 2 Extreme X6800, which still does not do much in terms of performance.

 

I would have suggested the 771 Xeon upgrade but your board's chipset is not supported in this upgrade scenario: https://www.delidded.com/lga-771-to-775-adapter/2/

 

Also that RAM is quite old and small. Might want to switch to DDR2 at least.

 

The video card could use an upgrade to probably something that does not requires a PCIE connector and with it's lack of newer drivers it might be a good idea.

 

Overall, esports titles are all you can play on this setup and probably at very low settings.

 

 

CPU: Sempron 2500+ / P4 2.8E / P4 2.6C / A64 x2 4000+ / E6420 / E8500 / i5-3470 / i7-3770
GPU: TNT2 M64 / Radeon 9000 / MX 440-SE / 7300GT / Radeon 4670 / GTS 250 / Radeon 7950 / 660 Ti
