Edit: Did you update your drivers?

make sure you are using the latest driver off of the manufacturers website... the processor is a bit weak but you should still be seeing improvement.

Have you tried overclocking your processor and seeing if it makes a difference?

I have no idea how to Overclock my CPU and I never looked into it as I was informed its a bad idea with this processor...?

I did the driver wipe. No luck. still getting around 60 FPS in BF2:BC2 and when I play in a server it goes to 30 FPS. seems like 30 is all it will do with any game.. :/

DO I need a new processor? Motherboard to?

nah, cpu might be a bottle neck, but you should get better performance then that gs. overclocking is an option if you have a decent cooler.

and hrm, odd. 60fps? what operating system are you using?
