Default Re: Good card for playing bf2?

I have the 7600GS and that gives me about 100 frames on alll medium settings with no antilasting. res is 1280X1024

i could get better but i like to run steady and get pissed off if I lag so i reduce the quality

to play BF2 good your gonna need:

a mid level 256MB card or a high end 128MB video card
1024MB (one gig) of RAM - the more the better.
a fast processor (AMD Atalon should work fine, i have the 3700 running @ 2.55Ghz and I'm able to run Itunes and MSWord while playing and it doesn't lag at all)

so to play BF2 i would spend a few hundred and get more Ram and atleast a 256MB card. it'll be worth it just with the RAM.

what resolution are you running at?

i have a 6600gt and i play bf2 with it on an LCD resolution on medium settings, so the 6600gt is still okay if you want to go cheap.

I would go with the 7300GT, if I remember correctly, the 7300GT is slightly better than a 6800GS.

I think a 7600GT is about the same as a 6800GS. A 7600GT would suit u fine, not the best card out there, but it's also pretty cheap. And it can run pretty much any current game on high settings.

aint 7600GT better than 6800GS as it's higher in the range, and GT is better than GS?
