Default Good card for playing bf2?

Hi, im on the search for a good card under 60 (p&p & vat included) for playing bf2 on medium settings @ 1024x786 res. I need it to be in a PCI-E port, or PCI (NOT AGP). Will this card be good:

AOpen Aeolus 6600GT-DV128 PCI-Express 128MB DDR3 with TV-Out - Retail Box

http://ebuyer.com/UK/cat/Graphics-Ca...Force-6-Series

Thankyou


P.S My processor is amd atholon 3200, 512 RAM (soon to be 1gb). Should I get an extra fan/heatsink?

Uumm..6600, at medium settings for BF2, is pushing it. As john said, what are your other specs?

get either the 7600GT or 7900GT. I have the 7900GT and highest settings are awesome.

6600GT will get you the lowest settings.
