I run a HIS x1650 512mb in my games and webbrowsing machine and it seems to run everything fine, even ArmA on medium settings. Considering it was only a hundred quid I'd say it was a bargain.

(from XE.com) 1.00 GBP United Kingdom Pounds =2.33161 CAD Canada Dollars

ArmA - Armed assault, successor to Operation Flashpoint.

I can run BF2 with almost everything on high but that machine doesn't have alot of memory (768mb PC3200) so I only get about 20-30fps with everything on high and lighting and terrain on med @ 1024x768 but I took some memory out of my workstation to see how it ran with 2gb of RAM and the difference was considerably better getting 40-60 fps.

i have an eVGA nvidia 6800gt pci-e....i run cs 1.6, cs:s, and world of warcraft on max settings no problem...so anything pci-e would be a good investment, but only newer motherboards have them...are you looking for a pci, agp, or pci-e? if your computer is a couple years old and not custom built, you either have a pci or agp slot that holds your video card, so find out that first then we can help you better

Don't bother asking. Forget about the price and go buy an XFX XXX series 8800GTX. NAU. Then you'll be able to run BF2 everything on high.

I have an NVidia 7900 with a reasonable amount of video RAM (cant remember how much... 256mb or 512mb). I can run most new games fine - e.g. BF2, BF2142 and Oblivion with high graphics settings.

If you're going to increase graphics settings, I'd recommend ugrading your RAM I have 2GB RAM, which is good enough to play any game out there.

The last time I upgraded, when a game I wanted required pixel shading, I put in an Club 3D GeForce 6600 256Mb AGP 8x card DVI VGA in (I still haven't got around to PCI Express ) It works with my Dell UltraSharp™ 2007WFP 20.1" Widescreen LCD.

I'm using a Point of View Geforce 8800 GTX in combination with the AMD AM2 X2 5200+...

...out of question, it runs everything on ultra highest settings including HDR with 16x Antialialising and 16x Anisotropic filtering.

WoW graphic can be run on a 800 Mhz Pz with a Nvidia Riva TNT2, just as freelancer ( I tried it), so that's nothing to set speed values with.

Try games like FarCry, Call of Duty 2, Armed Assault, Medieval 2, Half life 2...
