havent tried BF2 because of friends of mine have told me it would run slow, I also want good graphics, just unsure of the price I want to put into it.

well if you decide against a new PROC i think you should definately get a 8mb cache 7200RPM ATA 133 drive
and probably a geforce 5700 256mb in the least for better performance..

Is your computer running at the max bus speed with 3 ram slots filled? sometimes 3 slots auto limits the bus.

I know nothing about overclocking so that will not be done, video card will probably be a 6800GT card since it runs just about everything a 7800 does, overall its about a 500 dollar upgrade selling my current rig
