I'm not sure what it is, but I can say your specs look more than sufficient to play BF2. The fact that BF1942 crashes too makes me think there's something in need of attention on your system.

Some pc guru may be able to come in and help, but it may just be time to start fresh with a HD format and new windows installation if it's been awhile since that's been done.

As for your sound, I'd stick with the SB card. On-board cards are typically junk and they use up some of your cpu.

I had a similar problem when I first got BF42. I also had to buy my first video card (ATI 9200) And it would do the same thing to me. What it ended up being (after chasing my tail for 3 days) was that the AGP drivers for my mother board weren't installed. Have you ever had your video card out of the machine? is this video card new to your machine? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, make sure you install the correct AGP drivers from your Mother Board Manufacturer's website.

P.S. I am assuming that your "Realtek" is your onboard sound right? Now a days it is more a personal pref to which you like better because of the system resources that computers now a days have. But i am from the old school. I still would rather have a stand alone sound card than use onboard sound. Don't like too many things demanding to read/write from my RAM. Gunny

Not sure, As I still am running on AGP, but does anyone know if the PCI-E slot has a driver like AGP slots do?? Also This may be a stupid suggestion, but try removing the video card, and re-seating it.

Most motherboard have chipset drivers that need to be installed, preferably BEFORE the vidcard drivers. Post a copy of your DXDIAG here and let us have a look.
