Hi. im looking to play battlefield 2. but I think that my current graphics card cant handle it. i knew for a fact it couldnt at first. but then i installed a few updates from the intel site and it seems to have worked wonders. i currently have the newest version of Intel® 82845G Graphics controller. it handles rome total war pretty well and even barbarian invasion. but I need a 128 mb graphics card to play it and i have a sneaky feeling mine isnt upto that. so i took it to my local computer store, which said they couldnt even put a new card in cause the ports wernt right. so i was wondering what options i have of getting that 128 mb card. only thing i can think of is more updates.

thanks if you can help

If they say you canot put in a newer grapics card in your computer, there can only be one reason for that.... You have an old computer!
And that is possible, if you have only 64Mb grapics card.
So if that is the case, you can nothing do except buy a new one. (A new computer).

By the sounds of it, your motherboard has AGPx2, AGP or (horrors) PCI video. 128MB cards can be found for these formats but are pretty rare as you won't gain much on the performance front due to bandwith limitation.

If your motherboard is indeed that old, it may well be worth considering an upgrade to a motherboard with AGP x4/x8 or the newer PCI-Express standard.
