If I Swap out Parts Will My 6000 Pro AIO be a Gaming Machine?

Hello. I have been trying to game from my AIO, although I have a max RAM upgrade and have updated ALL of my drivers my CPU still seems to be struggling with some of my more current titles. I was considering (among other things) swapping the E6600, 2-MB cache, 3.06 GHz CPU with an E8500, 6-MB cache, 3.16 GHz or E8600, 6-MB cache, 3.33 GHz if this is even possible. I was also considering swapping out the Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family with whatever it is I can fit there and because I'm not sure of the replacement part I will consider any compatible suggestions. Thanks!

I have yet to understand that part, what's wrong with just one processor that can do the job? If I can't combine these dual processors and get the job done how can I be so sure that a quad-core will do? An extra processor is only working (as far as I know) if it is activated manually, I have my money on a processors cache size and bus speed. Thanks for the answer though.
