A new graphics card would be nice... and a new psu too.

Buy a stick of 1 gig of ram. Then get an BFG geforce 6600gt.
That should be about 300$ Probly less. Then you should be able to play on high settings. Your cpu is fine.

It depends on what his psu is... a 6600gt can't run on anything less that 300w as far as I know...

OMG, 250watts?!?! Ok, upgrade the PSU and video card. That's a MUST. RAM can be upgraded later if you don't have the money. 512MB should be ok because that's the minimum you can have to play BF2.

Well 512mb is ok for minimum settings, but he can already play on those lol. But yea, upgrading you PSU is a must now.

This is a VERY good power supply, it will be more than enough and youll also be set for the future. Tip: When searching for power supplies, wattage isnt necessarily the most important thing to look for, because you can have a crapy 500W PSU, other than wattage look at what is says under the +12v, anything over 20A should be ok, unless your making a super gamming comp. This PSU has has 36A which is really good for the price.

+3.3V@32A, +5V@34A, ***+12V@36A***, -5V@0.3A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@2A
Were the stars are is were you should look for it.

okay, get a new psu, your video card is decent right now, but BF2 LOVES 2GB OF RAM. IT LOVES IT, ITS A RESOURCE HOG.
