Depends on your budget, 6800GT or SLI are the best I think. But I hugely recommand you a Radeon X850XT :D

Too bad a X850XT isnt pixel shader 3.0 compatible while the 6800GT is.

well, check my sig for my comp specs, but i think that, and hope that i will be able to play BF2 max settings, at 1024x768 with No 2xAA and 2xAF, i will very happy if i can run BF2 with those settings while maintaining a decent frame rate

This might not be a bad idea,just wait till it's out give it a week or so and then ask right now we don't know what will and will not work,you could get a 6800 gt spend $400 and maybe a lesser card would run it fine and cost less,I run a 6800 GT but I do alot of other gamming so I did need a top card,if your goning to play the new games comming out then I would say the 6800 GT 256,based on I have it and runs great,I cannot help ya on the ATI stuff but Im shure there top cards would be just as good some diffrence in frame rate but it's all good.

MSI is like a frying pan, gets up to 90 degrees celcius under load. But yeah it will run bf2 fine as long as you dont have an insane resolution. Benchmarking different brands: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2295&p=19
