Also I wouldn't go below 7200 rpm on your Hard Drive. Alot of people don't realize that loading from the Hard Drive is a major bottleneck.
Yes, Hard drive is by far one of the biggest bottlenecks in a computer, even my system which is a 4.0ghz Core i7 920 suffers from hard drive lag.

A 5400rpm hard drive will make your quad core feel like a single core at times.
