Uhu, maybe I might re-think the gfx card
How come the gfx card wont work with bf2? What would be a okay gfx card PCI or PCI-E that supports bf2 (i run a AGP ati radeon 9550 - works quite nice).
Yeh i did say 350W

Ill use this as case (if it fits):

a 7300GS will be enough for him since he has only 512mb of ram, which means that he will be running bf2 with low settings. And even my fx5700 could run it on low settings.

But if u can spend more then 1gb of ram and a 7600GT, those should get u quite far. If u want to run bf2 on highest settings then u better get 2gb of ram, though going from 512mb to 2gb will increase the price a lot.

yer my current pc has 2gig ram and i can run highest settings on bf2 with a ATI RADEON 9550 (1024x786 res though).

Anyway. Lets presume in the future im going to buy another stick on ram (512mb to make it up 1 gb). What graphics card would you recon go for (for about 40 - 60).

Thx

I hope the graphics card should be ok I checked a review here http://www.planetamd64.com/lofiversi...hp/t15920.html
Just a few more questions...
Should i buy an extra fans?
On the scale of 1(v.crap) to 10(v.good) what would you mark this pc as?
Is it a good build for under 200?

Thanks for all the help
