Ok, sorry for the false info, it's just I couldn't see it being a processor or RAM problem (it runs perfectly on mine with 1GB). I guess it could be a HD problem, but since he said he formatted, I didn't think that was causing it. I have absolutely no
experience with the card; I just thought it might not be great since it's a little older (I know age isn't everything). I didn't check the clock speeds and all before posting; I just remember seeing the 6800 (not GT) and thinking that I was glad I didn't get it instead of the 7800GT. (Please don't comment on how good the 6800 is; I know it can run BF2 on high, med/high settings, I'm just saying statwise, I was happy...) Anyways, just drop what I said...I didn't know.
@Argon: Forget about getting a new card; instead (if you haven't) try a defrag and also check for dust: in your Heat sink/fan (assuming that's what you have for your CPU,) your GPU fan, and your case fan(s). Anything else is beyond me. I wish you the best of luck with targeting the problem.
