hows that terrible advice? He told him to get a new card, which is exactly what u did. U just mentioned that he needs a new mobo too if he wants something else than a pci card. (which he probably knew anyway, though still good thing to mention)

But yeah, probably a new mobo with pci-e and then a decent pci-e card. A 7600GT would probably be nice. Also how much watts does the psu have?

BOOM! EA sucks! Haha, I'm just kidding. Well, EA does suck, but yeah...

If you want to run Battlefield 2 with decent quality, have no less than 1GB of RAM and a decent video card.

Anyways, the highest for a PCI card you can go is with the X1300. It's not bad...has some decent GDDR2 RAM and it even has DVI! Of course, I would recommend just upgrading your motherboard and the whole shebang, but if you're broke like I am...

Integrated graphics are not great for gaming. I don't even know if it'll run on low settings with the Xpress 200.

psu wattage?
In newegg it says that the requirement would be "483 Watt power supply or higher " But that seems extremely high for a pci card.
I was looking at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814103016
