He talks about his processor bottlenecking the system in that review... yet he has a Core 2 Duo X6800 Extreme (Conroe). Is that already considered an outdated processor?

not at all, but for some reason people think that the cpu bottle necks the gpu a lot, which it doesnt. all the cpu has to do is send it commands, that are just a couple MB in size, since most cards already have all the stuff cached, the cpu only has to send the textures\models\animations\etc. during the loading screen.

once you get down to a much lower end cpu, then yeah it will bottle neck it a little. for example i have a 3600+ X2, running 2 cores @ 1.9ghz, brisbane core.
stock 3dMark06 with 8800GTS 320 was around 8000
oced from 1.9 to 2.5, my score was about 8600, 99% coming from the boosted cpu score

No, I wasn't kidding, I just said I assumed you where cause your sig said to assume you where kidding (but you deleted your sig now...). But no, thats not invisitext, it's merely camotext. You can still see it pretty easy. On the ign forums, it's nearly impossible to see the right colored text against there background.
