Your problem is DEFINITELY the CPU, period. Athlon x2 with the K8 architecture is super slow for today's games and GPU's. Get a cheap Athlon II x2 or x4, overclock the snot out of it, and you'll see HUGE increases. With my sig rig, I average around 100 FPS or so in BFBC2. With your GPU, you should be able to run it maxed out at 1080p, and use vsync if you wanted (you should get at least 60 as an average).

Plus, you're at a low resolution, which just makes your CPU bottleneck even worse.

Yeah it has to be my CPU that is bottlenecking, I did some research and I'm gonna get this one Newegg and overclock it with an aftermarket cooler. That should fix my problem.

You will see a significant improvement with the new CPU... before I got my q9300, I was using a dual core e6400 @ 3.3 ghz and my bc2 fps more than doubled by going quad core.

ya that new proccy will definitely be a huge improvement....now thats what i like about amd u could just swap in a new proccy instead of buying a whole new setup due to the longevity of their platforms......
