Hello, I am purchasing a Nvidia 6800GS 512 mb AGP graphics card... Will this work well with BF2? I mean will there be any playing lag and do you know what settings I can set it to without there being any lag? (medium, high etc) The card that I am currently running is a Nvidia 5200 256 mb, and it runs really laggy, even on low settings.... My specs Pentium 4 prossessor @ 3.2 GHGZ 1GB of Ram (1) 200 GB Hard Drive (1) 150 2ndary Hard drive Windows XP service pack 2 (I have windows vista) All help is greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!:) :) :) :) :)

Whooow Your in luck! thats just what i have! and the almost the same fo ram and just about the same processer (mines AMD 64bit) altho im using Windows Xp not vista lol.. anyways Crank up those grahix up to max :cool: i should think you will have the same performance as me :nodding: just a quick note i get about 3 secounds of lag just at the begining of the 1st multiplayer game i join after that its plain sailing at around 50fps hope this helps. btw i have not yet found a game yet that i cannot run on max settings (that includes bf2142 beta)

the card will be good.

having 1.5 or 2 gig of memory really helps with the lag, but that gfx card will really help compared to the 5200. 400.00 PLNPoland Zlotych = 68.2803 GBPUnited Kingdom Pounds 400.00 PLNPoland Zlotych = 128.203 USDUnited States Dollars

Personally I think that is a good buy for the money.

I assume you are in Poland and using Zlotych, otherwise it could be a really bad buy :)

You should consider buying a 7600gs, its about £130 and very good card, better than the 6800, it also has Pixel Shader 3 which makes your games prettier and is required for future games such as Crysis. Take a look at it.

Sorry, but I allready placed the order.... And I live in the usa, not Poland so i guess this guy is ripping me off... Hes installing an AGP card... NOT PCI, wich is faster and doesnt cost as much, but my mother board only takes AGP, so thats wut ill have to live with. Thanks though...

Holy crap you got ripped off big time, a 7600gs is much better and should be about $230, and for $400 you could get an even better one, take the order back, your getting ripped off big time!

i paid £130 for it (btw mine is also AGP) to bullet_from_behind: the 6800gs does have Pixle shader 3 support oh somthing i didn't mention when i was telling you about the performance of it i have a Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Fatal1ty which should make a fair difference to performance but then again i have a second PC with: 2.9 Ghz Processer 6600 GT (128mb AGP) 1gb Ram Windows XP SoundBlaster Audigy2 NX wich runs the game on a mix of high and medium settings. i used to have a 5600 with the above settup which couldn't get much further then low settings so you should get a big boost on speed i just hope that you think the money was well spent

Ya, well, i guess ill just wait and see... One quick question: I purchased this fan :http://www.xoxide.com/uvslotcooler.html Will it work if I put it right under my VGA card???? And doesit blow air in, or suck the hot air out? Will this make a difference to the 6800 that im getting? Thanks
