The 9800Pro will of course be better since its a newer card BF2 should run fine on it, though if ou want something more worthwhile that will last you longer (I have a 9800Pro by the way adn at high settings get about 20-30 frames per second, and so i'm going to change my card soon to the one i'm going to mention)

I'd go for a Geforce 6600GT, if you are in the uk, this will cost you about 140-160 and is definitley worth while for anyone, since it'll play games at high settings with higher speds, and so you shouldn't have to upgrade for a rather long time.

If you got the 9800PRO now (not adviseable) you'll see the limits of it rather quickly now, since its about a year old.

I hope this helps

Yeah, that would definitely be much better
It'll last you longer than if you got a 9800Pro like me now, honestly.

Plus XFX is a good make, so your not doing a bad deal there. Go for it! Its a great price too!

Yeah, I wish I went for Nvidia too. I'll have a chance once I get my bro to buy a new card for the PC All I'll have to say is that it'll improve is games, which is true by all means It would also help me too!

By the way, have you gone for that one ChuNalt787?
