Default Graphics card Question

Hi everyone,

Just received Battlefield 2 as an early Christmas present and I'm wondering if it will be compatible with my graphics card. Don't want to risk opening it up and having it not work and I won't be able to take it back to the store.

I'm able to play Battlefield 1942 without any problems at all but I know BF2 is a bit more demanding.

I have a HP Pavilion Dv5000 Laptop on Windows XP
ATI Xpress 200m
1GB of RAM
80 Gig Hard Drive
AMD Turion 64 (2.0 GHz I believe)

BF2 requires 128 MB or more of the graphics card which I believe mine can do. It also said it needs an ATI Radeon 8500 chipset or greater which BF 1942 also says and a couple of other games I have which work fine on my computer.

Any additional info or opinions accepted. Thanks.
