** Admin please sticky ** Hello, Many people come here looking for help getting BF2 to run on their system. You may describe the problem pretty well, but it makes it hard to get started on trouble shooting problems without knowing something about your system first! Besides the fact that BF2 will not run for you for one reason or another. 95% of people are not listing their System Specs when asking for help. So this is a plea for you to please list your System Specs along with a description of your problem, please. Be as specific as you can. Also post whether your monitor is a CRT monitor or and LCD monitor. See below for an example of detailed System Specifications. Thank You, OneTinSoldier System Specs: Intel 3.4C(C = Northwood Core) on Asus P4C800-E Deluxe(Intel 875P + ICH5R Chipset), Zalman 7000a-Cu HS/Fan, Enermax RG651P-VE 550W PSU, 1 GB Mushkin High Performance(2-2-2) PC3200 RAM, NEC MultiSync FE2111SB 21" CRT Monitor, Sapphire Radeon X800 XT PE Videocard with v5.6 Catalyst Drivers, DirectX 9.0c, Creative Audigy2 Platinum Soundcard with Creative OpenAL Beta Driver, 250 GB w/8 MB Cache Western Digital HDD, WinXP Pro SP2

This is not the correct thread for this post Jakkc, nobody will see it here, I suggest making a new thread in the help forum proper.
P.S. Get a DVD burner, not DVD Rom the difference is only a few dollars. Also why not consider getting a faster CPU? The 3200, while a great CPU (I have one myself, a socket 754 from almost the day Athlon 64's came out over a year ago), it is now the entry level Athlon64. Also is the motherboard you have selected Dual Core ready?
Other than that it will be fine.
Please supply a list of your system specs whenever asking for help.
As a minimum we need: CPU speed Memory amount Vid card type Operating System
The more information you supply the better, such as exact error message (ie: NOT "It just gave a wierd error messaeg and crashed"), whether other programs are also affected etc.
