I read on the AmericasArmy official site what cards are and arent supported. However i have a tnt2 64 which is NOT supported, yet i play the game quite offten. I do have some performance isues with maps that have high sprite counts (i.e. mountain pass, swamp) but they r still quite playable. I have never had a map "crash" or anything. I guess what im trying to say is, "How is this possible?". Do i realy need to get a g/f card to play this game?

No. Unsupported is what you have, but it is not incompatible, those are two toally different things. What games require nowasdays is a 2D/3D graphics in an AGP or on-board chip (on-board sucks, those are in $500 comps, avoid them!). Who makes it doesn't matter. But, if you want the best experience and stability, then you should have one of their 'supported' cards installed.
