Default Bottlenecking?

How can i tell if my computer is bottlenecking?

I don't know if its just battlefield 2 that is bugged to hell, or if it's my computer.

I have 1 gig of ram, 2GHz xp2800+, and a 6600gt with a 420watt psu..

does that seem like its bottlenecking? i know my 2GHz are kind of low

Well, any help or advice, please inform, Thank You.

You have a good graphics card and memory, the only thing slowing it down would probably be your processor.
