Why do you suggest only ATI cards. I think you should offer a variety of both. ATI and nVidia are even. The only advantage nVidia has over ATI is the 7800gtx which will soon be countered with the R520. Really ATI vs nVidia doesn't mater. What matters are the last 3 digits of your video card(ex. 9800 >>>>800 since its 800 its better than the x600). Thats why the NEW 6200 is a crummy card and is only better than the 5200 which was in the series before it.The 6200 is not better than the 5900 which is older than it, that is a mistake many people make.The first digit is the series number. All that it determines is features like AA and shaders, It does not determine raw power although, It is a good idea to buy a card from a newer series. A newer series card is not always better (ex. x600<9600). but usually they are.

Note: The xXXX and 9xxx series I refer to are ATI. The 6xxx and 5xxx are nVidia cards.

Note 2: Don't compare the last 3 digits when comparing ATi to NVIDIA although the 6200 and the x300 are near even and the 9600 and the 5700 are near even too.

I just prefer ATI over nVida. But does his computer meet BF2 system requirements. Make sure your video card has 128 mb of ram and your computer has atleast 512 mb ram. I suggest you have 1 gb of ram it will run alot smoother....

I have an ATI Mobility Radeon x300 (I use a laptop to play BF2), and 512 MB of ram. It runs pretty well, I wish I had 1 GB though.... :tazz:

My clan BF2 Server, has 2 GB of ram. If you are expierianceing video problems in Online play, then you should find out if its your computer or the server. I am just thinking of random solutions......

Is the Server you play in patched?
Is the Server you play in Dedicated?
Whats the Server Pint?
How many players are there in that server?

just some simple questions to ask...

Just trying to help,

Before you rip into me, I just joined this forum because of the same nVidia GeForce 6200 v. Battlefield 2 issue... chalk it up to the desire to have a fast laptop with gaming abilities (I hear laughter). Without debate or editorial comment do you have any idea how to update the drivers if the manufacturer's downloads do not work or is there any way you can post some steps? Thanks in advance.

Well as I have said, it worked fine until I updated my AGP drivers because my video would freeze on full acceleration, and by the way every other game runs fine.

Well,

First step is to find out what version your video drivers are. If it is not 77.72 then it is out-of-date...Here is the download link for the latest Driver...

http://www.nvidia.co...p_2k_77.72.html

Hope it helps and good luck!
