Ok right now I have an nVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 and it's the worst thing you can use to play with on Battlefield 2. I was thinking about getting a PNY Verto GeForce 6200 128MB DDR AGP Graphics Card. Could somone tell me how good it is, and how high I will be able to run my settings on Battlefield2?

It's not a very good card even though i probably gives you a good performance/price ratio. You should be able to play BF2 at 1024x768 at low settings or maybe at 800x600 med settings.

It would be easier to give a recommendation if you could provide details of your computer and what kind of budget your working with.

You can get your details by downloading and installing this program: EVEREST Home Edition.

In everest click Computer then right-click on Summary. Choose Quick report --> plain text. Wait for the report to show up then copy the Summary part (the part between --------[ Summary ]-------- and --------[ Debug - PCI ]-------------) and paste it into the reply.

Look at this card ASUS Geforce 6600GT N6600 GT/TD/128M Video Card. Not under $150, but a damn good card for that price. It'll let you run the game at 1280x960 with medium settings, or at 1024x768 you maybe could drag it up to high.

If you want more performance than that you'll have to upgrade the rest of your computer.

You can get nVidia 6600 GT vid cards from manufacturers other than Asus for under $150, many as low or lower than $120. Look for manufacturers like Chaintech, PNY, BFG and so on. Then you can google for reviews of any card you're interested in.

You can run either Nvidia or ATI graphics cards. The Radeon 9600XT 256mb is a great card for the money. Also get some more ram. That will help your gaming and multi-tasking.
