You should have gone AMD with the mobo. AMD CPUs are better no matter if you go single core or multi.

Get PC3200 ram and ditch the old 2700 sticks completely. PSU, depending on the +12V amp, get the 7800GT instead.

Yeah you need AT LEAST 1 gig for BF2, 2 gig is ideal.

What???? Thats not right bro, i have a 3000+ (was a 2600+ when i tested this) and a 6800GT 512 3200 and i played max setting w/ 4X AA and 1024x768@85hz. You got somethig wrong.

As for the system i would say a gig of 3200 at the least and a 6800GT will do fine but if the PSU permits i would go 7800GTX.
