Default Bf2

ok im thinking of buying this game. i havent played the demo yet but i will before i buy it. anyway its supposed to be really good and the screen shots look good. the problem is that i dunno if my computer will run it smoothly or not, look at my sig, should i get a second 6600gt? along with the game? or should i get more ram and not worry about gpu yet? pretty much will a 6600gt play BF2 at high settings without lagging all the crap.

You'll need more RAM.. at all high settings BF2 uses more than 1GB of RAM.

you can have 512 ram i have only 512, you can have everything set on the maximum quality except for textures. textures have to be set on medium, if you set textures on high you will stutter like mad.

Once u get the new ram u will run it without any problems. Not with everything on high but it looks amazing with everything on low for me so it will be plenty good.

Frankly i think with a 6600GT you'll be bale to run it NEAR MAX. And really poeple that I talk to say it depends on the vaule of the ram. Now shadowing affects with a 6600gt would be as good. And I can see you beign able to run with max settings with 1 GB. 1 GB is a lot of memory even today. Frankly 1GB is ahead of the curve. Computer experts still say you'll be able to run games wiht 512 MB ram. However one day I might go 2 GBs.
