CPU bottleneck?

I just installed a NVIDIA 256mB 6800 GT vid card in my Vaio PCV RZ32G; I upgraded from NVIDIA's 6600 GT. I have a 2.6 P4 processor, 2G PC3200 RAM, I mainly play America's Army, and my frame rates are lower in some spots/maps than what I got with the 6600 GT. Is my CPU causing a bottleneck? or did I screw up when I ran the drivers?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

In most games they auto-detect the video settings. The 6800 gt will auto detect at higher settings than that of the 6600 gt.

Check your in game video settings and look at the resolution, AntiAliasing and the Anisotropic Filtering. Try lowering them if they are set high. I run all of my games at 1024X768 all monitors will run that.
