You're gonna notice quite a big jump in performance once you upgrade.

What are your PC specs btw?

same i run low and its stunning ,totally love it, bf2 is pretty awesome too, i find the 9800gt a good card, apart from its original casing gets clogged up easy with dust thus the reason i almost hit 100 degrees on it, casing removed and added another fan to it lol.. runs good now!
