Your CPU is holding you back, come Xmas, you'll see a big difference.
Intel Core 2 Duo cpus have plenty of power for GTL/GTR2/race

It's more graphically intensive than CPU. However, that's not to say that your CPU is sufficient. I just don't think that the CPU is as important as your graphics card with this game. You don't need a workhorse for a CPU such as one of the dual core ones. Mine runs great on an AMD64 4000+ (single core). I had a dodgy frame rate with everything on high when I was running on 2x 6800GT. Sli seems to have little or no effect with this game. I removed the 6800's and threw an 8800GTX in there and now I'm running in 1920 res 16X AA and 16X AF everything on high. Never seen the framerate drop below 50 fps.

Run the Config. executable, in the main GTR2 directory, and choose DX7 Mode. Then use the video options, in game, to turn down all the eye-candy / effects you really need - particles, tire smoke etc. Hope this helps and BTW, stick 4Gb Ram and XP Pro in your new rig.

my new mobo actaully only supports 2 gigs
Get the fastest stuff you can get -- GTR2 is a CPU/ GPU Pig!
My San Diego A64 with 1mb cache running at 2.8Ghz with 500mhz low latency OCZ ram and an OC'd 7900GTX struggles when it rains at night behind a bunch of cars with GFX maxed out.
To max out GFX you definitely need the best of the best. (8800GTX/ Core2 duo Conroe)
BTW a dual core CPU does you absolutely no good in GTR2, but it's nice to have for future proofing for other games/ applications.
With 4x AA, 16xAF - all options turned up in game and all optimizations in the Nvidia drivers turned off with nHancer (like ATI tray tools, etc).. Using gamma correct AA, transparency supersampling.. So it is a worse case scenario.
-after the start the FPS goes up to 50 to 70 or so though, and up to 100+ w/o rain.. but still, certain situation are a system killer..
Until you upgrade, turning off the MOTEC heps a lot, and then turning some of the GFX options down to high instead of max, etc helps a lot to keep the FPS up w/o sacrificing a lot of image quality and eye candy. Uncheck that advanced collision debris or whatever that is called- people with Core 2 Duo Conroe systems have reported huge slowdowns during accidents with that option checked. So it is a huge framerate killer.
