    Video card may be a little weak, slowing down performance. I use a 8500 GT which is far more powerful. I have the opposite problem you do. My single player game runs silky smooth for the most part, but multiplayer is very choppy and I can't do a lot of the moves because of the choppiness and lag. My sound card hasn't arrived yet, so I hope this resolves the problem.

    You also might try OC'ing your CPU,Mem,& GPU to increase the framerate but be careful and makes sure you have sufficient internal cooling and adequate PSU supply.

    I suggest checking the game settings inside of the game itself. You should be able to turn down the graphic settings first without the risk of overclocking your CPU and risk it overheating. If the game settings don't help then try overclocking.

    The high detail shadows is what noticeably knocks down the framerate in single player Jedi Academy for me. Your system isn't bad, but Celerons can't handle much going on at once. If you have other applications running, close them while you play Jedi Academy. Also check the Task Manager as there may be some processes eating memory and CPU that you can stop as well.
