Poor performer compared to the Nvidia 6600GT, you may not be able to run BF2 at full quality settings with that. You want at least an X800 or Nvidia 6800 to run with good performance at max settings.

Nooooo! But... But... It was the only one out at the time! The best one I could find! Why, God, why?
That's always the danger when jumping into the latest technology ASAP. There is limited supply and you can't always get what you want, or what is best. I will be getting a new PCI Express Mobo and Athlon 64 later this year, but by then the next gen 7000 series nvidia cards will be out and the PCI-Express 6800's will be much more affordable. Of course the next gen ATI's will also be out. I suppose there's a lesson there, only jump into new technology early if you can afford to upgrade regularly. I will be trading in my Socket 754 Mobo and Athlon 64 3200+, probably a setup here that many ppl would actually love to upgrade to, for a Dual core capable socket 939, but I have had it for nearly two years, a benefit of being a computer reseller, you get to pick from the latest that's available. So a word of advice for ppl who are on a limited buidget, if your computer is currently capable of running BF2 at lower settings, leave a major upgrade for another 6 months and save your money, then you will get a 6800 or ATI X800 as a midrange vid card at midrange prices.
6 months? wow, I plan on getting a Bfg6800gt soon, like $35 away. As of right now, AGP and PCI-e are even. I don't think Bf2 will be the killer app for it though.
well im confident i can run it on max, at 1024x768 even if there is no AA / AF, although i will seriously look into those 7xxx series geforce cards when they're released, i currently have a 6600gt
Why upgrade so quickly? The new 7xxx card will be $500+ wait untill your 6600gt is very slow then upgrade.
Yeah, those new cards will be overkill for BF2. The game will run fine on high settings with the card you have now. Save your money.
