that thing should be running BF2 like nobody's business.

once you get it tweaked in you should be pwnage = BF2

one thing that has helped me to get the newer games running on par is to pay close attention to codecs.

third party codecs can wreak havoc on game performance so be wary of installing too much of that stuff. (divx etc. etc. ad infinitum)

Haven't done research on codecs yet, one thing at a time
I was decent at playing with the bios on my a7n8xe deluxe and when I saw this 64 bit bios it all became new to me. I have officialy become a computer geek to all my friends wife and family lol

you shouldn't need to worry about them unless you have installed any, also a reinstall of the very latest directx / video / audio drivers from time to time can dramatically improve gaming performance.

also try and stay away from the AC97 audio (onboard sound), a creative SB PCI card can do wonders as far as gaming is concerned as well.
