This motherboard?

If you don't want to change the proc, you could always get more RAM. 2 more 512s would cost $90. If thats too much, just get one more 512.

Other than that, I don't really see anything else. Your video card is fine, and upgrading it any higher wouldn't make sense right now.

Otherwise, I think your performance is very good =)

hey thanks dude, i see your also getting a 6600gt or 6800LE. well go for 6600gt or 6800 (do not get a 6800LE) they really blow 6800 and 6600gt will kill a 6800LE. a 6600gt should fly through games on your processor

those are nice scores for your specs. I would go with 512 more ram. That would be the best upgrade for your money at the moment.

don't get 2 gigs, no video game will benefit from anything over a gig really. Save your money for something else.

BF2 will run awesome with 2 gigs, but I would think that you don't want to get rid of your old 512. I suggest you get 2x512 (1 gig) of Corsair ValueSelect DDR400 memory. Its $90 wo/ shipping from Newegg.com.

1.5 gigs is what it takes to run BF2 without lag.
