alright si i have a computer that is kind of decent that i want to play 2142 on but it fails in one area...my videocard..So basically what i need is a list of cards that are compatible with my motherboard...i will list my specs... im not sure what kind of motherboard is in it but my comp is a Dell XPS 200 so that should give you an idea. Specs: Manufacturer:Dell Inc. Processor:Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz (2 CPUs) Memory:1024MB RAM Hard Drive:245 GB Video Card:Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family:aka:piece of crap Monitor:Plug and Play Monitor Sound Card:SigmaTel Audio Speakers/Headphones:DELL ones, they make sound Keyboard:DELL keyboard Mouse:DELL optical mouse Mouse Surface:uh who cares? Operating System:Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600. that is why Dell is weird...it has to be all specific grrrrr anyways thanks for the help.

First make sure you have an AGP or PCI-E slot available. I will give you the top choices for each. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814143046 <- AGP http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Category=38&N=2010380048+1295318922&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=48&Description=8800+GTX&Ntk=all <- PCI-E (anything on this page) Your computer is old though. Consider getting a new one instead of just upgrading and do your research before purchasing it.

I was trying to research dell to find if u have pci express but i could find anything. You can call dell tech support and ask them they should tell you. But if it is pci express the 8800 is a little over kill a nvidia 7600gt will work just fine and u can get one for under 200 dollars that is what i have and it play bf2 and bf2142 turned all the way up. I hope this helps ya

kid311, are you kidding me? This is the kind of response you get from a person who is running an out of date computer that can go past 800x600. If you want to play a game that looks like legos go with his suggestion and if you want to play a game that looks like, as close as you’re going to get, real life go with mine.
