@RagingShadow07: Your CPU gets called into action when the GPU isn't able to process the workload independently. If you had a better GPU, say something like the Radeon 5850/5870 or GeForce GTX-470/480, then usage would be very minimal.

Also, consider that most (if not all) applications you'll be using will utilize no more than four cores.
