That should do you for most things you will be able to play hl2, not BF2 but it is a start. I had an agp4x 128meg fx5200 once upon a time and it does really well for a low end card. Only you should never play a game called pain killer it honestly looked like the original quake games on my old computer.

It is full length, so you need to look at cards that are low profile.
