hey Im now getting Battlefield 2142 and wanna make sure I can play it, I probably should have done it before buying but yeah Im noob. It dowsn't say radeon x200 on the supported graphics card list. I have this one geforce 6800 or 6600 I think but I dont know how to install...last time I insalled something I fried my motherboard and lost my computer. If i could get help on how to install I think I can do it or if I dont need to great. Check my system specs I put them in when i registered. Ummm do I have enough Ram also is there way I can free up some ram or something if I need more? Anything helps guys thanks. Im hoping to get new comp for christmas actually new gaming notebook thatll end all the trouble but all my friends are playinf BF 2142 and before I know it they will be some crazy rank and I'll be a pathetic private HELP! Thanks :whistling:

alright for the card just install the drivers first, shut it down, take side panel off of case, pop card in. does the card have a plug on it? if so plug it in. also it would help if we knew what ghz your cpu is, and size of your ram, also whats your os?
