My System Specs

Default

That's definitely not normal since I can max TF2 with some AA on a Radeon 4870 OC'd and a 1.75 year-old Phenom 9950, at least at LANs with ~8 people or so in game.

Is there something in the background that's causing the slowdowns? (e.g. antivirus)
You may also want to check your temps to make sure no part is throttling due to getting too hot. Also, does changing the game's graphics settings to low give you better frame rates? (I'm not asking you to play at low settings - just to make sure nothing else may be limiting frame rate).

Also, is this the only game that has issues? If so I'd check video and sound drivers to make sure they're not messing up.
