EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Superclock 896MB video card
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 LGA775 4MB L2 Cache, 1333 MHz FSB, 2.33GHz Overclocked to 3GHz
Corsair XMS2 DHX TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX 2GB DDR2 2x1GB Pc2-6400 DDR2-800 CL 4-4-4-12 RAM
ASUS P5K-E WiFi-AP Edition Mobo
Zalman CNPS9700 cpu heat sink
2 250GB hard drives set to raid 0
Windows XP Home Edition
How does it seem to not be peforming as it should be?
Theirs no true bottleneck, this can differ between different games. For example, some games are very CPU dependent, and a difference between an 8800 and 260 won't be noticeable, and this can also depend on what you have enabled in the game. And some games can be very ram hungry, (like far cry 2) and 2GB of ram just won't cut it, which is quite a few out there now.
What kinda performance loss are you noticing, it being quite occasionally stuttering, and running fine for a while than going to crap?
