High for everything except texture(medium), terrain(medium), dynamic shadows(medium, or medium for lights and high for shadows.) and 2x AA minimum. Those are playable settings with good graphics, but for higher fps, lower anything that you feel doesn't matter to medium(well medium would run best for your computer, everything at medium) and keep 4x aa. AA is a must in BF:2 since those crippled lines really get irritating.

Textures and Dynamic Lightning at medium will help (the rest can be high) Also, make sure your sound settings are at "Software" setting, and no EAX, and you might want to lower them to medium too. Disable VoIP to gain better performance too. Or better yet, find that SB card, so you can set sound to "Hardware" and enable EAX (a much better option quality wise, and performance too)

Ok, thanks very much. Very handy. I'll lower the sound setting and if the quality is bad i'll put the SB, its quite old but still probably better than the AC97. I'll let you know how it goes.

It looks fantastic and runs great with these settings:

[email="1280x960@70hz"]1280x960 70hz[/email] Terrain-medium Effects-high Geometry-high Texture-high Lighting-medium Dynamic shadows-off (do you ever notice shadows when your getting blown up) Dynamic Light-medium AAx4 Texture filter-high view distance-90% sound-high eax-on voip-off There you go. It look and runs abouseltely brill with these settings.

You should be able to run Hardware sound without too much performance hinderance, give it a try. The sound quality itself isnt much different, as DiCE cant make an awesome sound engine to save their lives. Its a lot better than the BF42 sound engine o_0

I suppose I should only run hardware sound with the SB in.

Have you tried using fraps to check your fps? Anything below 50 fps average isn't smooth.

I use Fraps and get anywhere from 100 -150. System: p43.0 800 fsb HT 1 gig pc3200 400 bus x800 256 pro i run everything on high and have no lag issues. no reason why that system can't do better.
