Whats the rest of your specs, itll play it on a half decent pc with that card(although not phenomenally). And i cant say it wont have hiccups, but i wouldnt go out and buy a new card specifically for BF2 it wasnt that great mildly dissapointing i would say.

Here's the rest of my specs, Dell Demenison 3100....2.80 GHz w/HT, 512MB of DDR RAM....Not much else I can say. I keep my system extremely clean and I defrag almost every other day...So can it work atleas on Medium?

Processor is fine, I beleive the recommended is 2.5Ghz. The ram is lacking, adding another 512mb would help greatly. The gfx card isn't bad. It should run ok with that card and another 512mb of ram.

Reccomended is enough to run low at best medium, you should get up to medium ok maybe with the FX5500 had a friend with one and he couldnt do much better than that and his system was better than that. But like i said not worht spending it to play that one game it kinda sucked a bit, i would rather save my money a bit and get a PCI-e mobo, as if your stuck with PCI thats a huge disadvantage that card wont work at its full potential on a pci.
