Bad Company 2? Good luck getting it to run on either of them cards. It'll be barely playable at lowest settings, and thats if it even works.

You're looking at something more like this to enjoy it properly:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460

Battlefield 2, not Bad Company 2. The BF2 community is still kicking from what I hear.

Anyway, BF2 was the game to get me into computer gaming. I had an Athlon 3500+ and a 6800GS and it ran it pretty well at 1280x1024. I'd skip option 3. How much do you have to spend?

Yep, BF2 is still VERY active, I play almost daily whether it be normal EA servers or PR servers, still a great game..

Anyway, I'd go with option 2 here. The Athlon 3200 has some surprising power and the x1300, while not amazing, should handle BF2 just fine from what I'm seeing on other forums.

I imagine you could get medium settings working ok, maybe even high? It's hard to say since all computers are different but I think that system will do just fine.
