You got the CPU, but you need to upgrage your card and get 2 gb of ram. As I've said many times before, if you want a better result then you gonna have to ugrade. :D

If i were to get a 7800 GT, with 1 gig, would i see more of an improvement than 2 gig and a 6800 128mb?

2gb of ram's what you need. You may be able to max it out then.
BF2 needs over a gb to run smoothly. I've seen the figure 1.2gb elsewhere
is needed.

I think the problem is your internet connection. Make sure you have the correct setting selected. I once had it set to T1 accidently and the performance was terrible. Be sure to reset your router.

As for everything else, I think it should be fine at 1024x768 w/ no AA.
I play 1024x768 high/custom settings w/ 2AA with my 6600gt and there is only a little lag at the very begining. The cards should be comperable with when you don't run AA.

good luck

I have two 7800 GT I needed 2 gigs. I ran 6800 on old system had to get 2 gigs. your GPU is fast enough. Whats a gig 70 bucks. A new card that is alot better is alot more. First step 2 gigs cheaper or... go in task manager and shut down a bunch of crap and be sure to defrag
