In order for it to make a noticeable speed difference in BC2, you really needed to upgrade to a quad core CPU that was the same speed or slightly faster than the E8400. All you did was step to the side; you added 2 cores, but you lost 500mhz in clock speed.

I think your processor may be the culrpit. A small overclock to 3Ghz would be enough to alleviate that bottleneck.
