Dide i personally think its your cpu. Its a MAJOR factor. and you could always do with a lil bit more ram!
But im not that hardcore about synthetic benchmarks... Just go out and game. if you like it then be with it!

2gigs are enough, more wouldn't hurt but it won't effect your score. It's likely your CPU, if your mobo supports newer cpus you could get X2 6000+ or maybe one of the faster phenoms
