Yep. But once you start playing BC2 you may just forget about BF2. Believe me. I've been playing BF2 since it came out, also on an XP pro system. As the BC2 release date got closer and closer, I decided it was time to build a new gaming rig (mine is similar to yours). Now I LOVE BF2, but BC2 is just blowing me away right now. I also just got a good 5.1 surround sound system and man you talk about amazing! Can't tell you how many times I've literally looked over my shoulder cuz I hear something behind me. hehe.
