I noticed better performance going after unlocking my x3

your doing it wrong. I would recommend trying a different card. something doesnt seem right with your 8800GT. with my cpu non-unlocked, and my GTS450, im WAY outpacing you at 1600x1200.

What resolution did you play with??
I ran bc2 with dual core at 3.6ghz + 2700mhz nb and all max out on mine 1440x900 resolution.
V-syns on and maintain fps at 60hz. Something definately wrong with your pc.

I gaurantee you can overclock this set-up to 3.8-4.0 easily.No more bottleneck.Another option is to get the ASrock 970 extreme 4 ($105)for SLi support.out of stock at the moment

Are you running the latest drivers? I was playing at the same resolution with an 8600GTS and a 555 BE and I kept right around 35-40FPS on BC2.

If you're going to upgrade, check out Ram as well. It's pretty cheap for DDR2. Upgrading to 4GB would probably be a big help as well.

This^. Sure BC2 runs better on quad, but it is by no means hindered by a dual. And you have a tri-core so it's not the cpu. My E8400 @ stock and 3.6 easily gave me enough room with my GTX-470 to max out BC2 @ 1400X1050. And with my Phenom that is about 5% slower clock for clock but with two more cores i have it completely maxed at 1920x1080. I think it's your card, though i haven't tried BC2 on an 8000 series card such as my 8800gt or 8600gts, i would think it would be too much for it.

If he gets a new motherboard then he'll have to shell out more money on an OS?

And if he's already doing both of those he might as well spend more money on another processor.

Get the AMD Phenom II X2 555 BE and try unlocking it, I love this processor it's beast.

also you call this not a bottleneck? cpu usage was 97% and it was on LOW
Well of course CPU usage will be high on low as it has to pump more information to the GPU. However when you up the settings and res the GPU is no longer waiting on the cpu to feed it data. If I am to take a guess as to what your problem is I would say it is a combo of GPU and RAM. My bro has an LGA775 Quad system with 2GB RAM and he struggles to play Fallout NV maxed no AA @ 1440x900. He has a HD5850 and I am a strong believer his RAM is the issue. Also the 8800GT is old now and I wouldn't be surprised if you are running out of VRAM.
