dude, i would reformat... i got a weaker rig than you and i run bf2 on highest settings and res w/o any frame dropping, really smooth.

i would reformat... download all the latest drivers for your stuff... thats what i do when i notice any performance decrease. works like a charm

hey man
you will have a hard time finding info on overclocking your cpu maybe...
i had to do a lot of research and askin questions on this here forum to get mine to work properly (because, basically, i didn't know jack s**t). still messin with it...does that ever stop?
and i'm with cwiz, although i oc to 2.6 your card is (supposedly) better than mine...i oc it too it's frikkin addictive heheheh, and i can play anything that i have come into contact with so far...haven't tried f.e.a.r yet, tho.
anyways i have a lot of helpful links about amd x2 if you decide to do it.
and don't wish you had a conroe...your cpu is right up in the top of the food chain as well. love it. once you get it set up right it is tight tight tight.

I would check the temp of your GPU, are you using the factory fan that came with it?? running that card at all max settings has got to be producing some serious heat!
