i was wondering if bf2 will run with a radeon x1300 because on the requriements page it says bf2 will ONLY run with these cards and i dont think i saw x1300 there so if u could tell me then do so.

I think it should, it's a brand new card. Don't quote me on that though.

Yes .. .it will only run on those cards. But the fact is, the x13 wasn't released yet... Common sense should dictate that, being as it is a new card it carries some backwards compatibility... ;)

On my DVD game case it says:

"Video card must have 128 MB or more memory and one of the following chipsets:

NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 or greater; ATI Radeon 8500 or greater."

So since the x1300 is a new generation card, and is 'greater' then the Radeon 8500, I would say that its probably 99% posible that it will run BF2. I think really any DirectX 9 compatible card will run the game.

And Merrick, the x1300 cards have been out for a while now.

After looking at the specs on newegg, the card dosnt look like anything very impressive, and I would guestimate that it would probably only run BF2 on low-med. settings. The x1300 is ATI's new generation card, made to fill in the lower market, so even thou its a new card, there are others that are MUCH better. On NewEgg I found an x1300 for $148, but you could get an eVGA nVidia GeForce 6600GT, which is more powerfull, for $135. Even tho the 6600 is only half the size (128mb compared to x1300 with 256mb) Its memory is clocked TWICE as fast as the x1300, which makes it equal to the x1300 pretty much. And it has 8 pipes compared to the x1300's 4 pipes. In comparison, a high end card like a 7800GTX has 24 pipes. I would say the 6600GT would easily out run a x1300, and if you wanted to spend a little more the 6600GTs are now availible in 256MB versions. The 6600, for its low price, really is quite an amazing card. Its able to do so much with 128mb of memory just because its clocked so fast.

YEs they have been out for a while. But not long enough to be "written" into the finalized Supported cards. Anything above and beyond the Minimal constrictions will be supported.

a card is a card .... I mean really ... today it's Nvidia tomorrow it's ATI... One is not used for any other type of gaming over another. I use an x800 for fps's and Rpg's, and sometimes when i am really feeling... well ... You know... Squirrly ..... I even play RTS's with my x800.. { shock} the horror of it. Who ever told you that has absolutely no clue... i can see that happening, use my X800 for FPS and then change it to a 7800 for the RPGs. what a friggin hassle that would be.

Hmm, if you had two PCE-E X16 slots you could have them both plugged in at once and swap between? I don't think so :D
