How Good Should A 7800GTX Be

  gazza38 13:24 22 Jan 2006

I just upgraded my graphics card from a 6600GT to 7800GTX (both Club 3D brand).Although there has been an obvious improvement,I sort of expected more.I still can't crank up all the settings on games like BF2,even without any AA.
Is my system up to it?

Pentium 4 550 (3400), 2GB DDR400,250GB+300GB SATA HDD,500W PSU,Viewsonic 924

3D mark 05 was 7049.Is this about right for this card?
I would like to run all games at 1280x1024
I'm a bit new to gaming,so don't really know what to expect.

Thanks old man,
Looks like my CPU may be holding things back a little,but not too much.
I bought my current PC mainly for video editing,hence the P4.Next PC will have to be an AMD machine,me thinks.
Again many thanks.
