Default Radeon 9800 Pro 128 Mb

Think this is enough to run Battlefield 2? Or should I get another card with 256 ddr?

The 9800Pro will run it, but might I suggest a FAR better card that is newer and has FAR BETTER REACHING performance and will last FAR longer?

Yes, yes I may:

if your on any sort of budget i would go for the 9800 pro, my friend ran it at 2x AA and 1024x768 without much problems, but you could also consider darkblade, he is the guru here

I'd have to change my motherboard, probably my processor, possibly my ram just to get that PCI-E card. Hell, why not just upgrade everything while I'm at it? If I was going to do that, I'd get something with 256MB for sure.

Well it beats the crap out of my 9600 which now needs a cooling kit because I was too stupid to buy a decent graphics card.
