I have a sempron 2200 and a nvidia 5200 fx. If i upgrade to a sempron 2800 and a ATI 6600 pro will it get the job done gaming wise? (p.s i wanna be able to play battlefield 2:) ) Thx for ure help guys
ehh.... ATI dosnt make a card called a 6600 pro... I dont think nVidia does either. The ATI X600 pro, the nVidia 6600 and 6600GT are all im aware of. Of those, the 6600GT is the only one that will really handle BF2, and its about $150 for an AGP version. The sempron 2800 isn't a good processor for gaming, but paired with a 6600GT (or better, nothing less) it might be able handle BF2 on medium settings.
No, that'd would run BF2 on low. And it'd probably still be slow. :uhm:
I recommend getting at least an AMD 3000+ Socket 939 (Probably Requires A New Motherboard) and a 9800 PRO to run games somewhat smoothly.
Mr.Helpfulwill it get the job done gaming wise? (p.s i wanna be able to play battlefield 2:) )
I'm afraid not, older games it shouldn't have as much trouble though. Just so you know, >these< are Battlefield 2's systemrequirements.
dude... edit button is your friend. A 9600 Pro would definately not get the job done, a 6600GT from the nVidia line or an X700 Pro from the ATI line are about the minimum.
Been there, know how you feel. PC gaming is an expensive hobby. Try not to anger any religious folk on these forums, will ya? ;) EA Games really stuck the fact tha PC gaming is an expesive hobby, in a lot of gamers faces. Battlefield only supports the high end cards, unlike most games. There are plenty of old classics that are still better than the newest games. Have you played Forgotten Hope, or DC Final yet?
How about Soldner, or Battlefield Veitnam? There are both better looking games, in the Battlefield genre.
Mr.Helpfulwell god damn it im only 15 and im not rich

On Topic: THIS is a pretty decent card, make sure your cooling is nice when you start having newer hardware in your computer, because things tend to get a bit hot, and you don't want a system overheat problem.
Also make sure the motherboard has an AGP slot before you buy it.
ok i found a better card tell me if itll work Apollo AGP 6600GT Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail Specifications ModelBrandApolloModelAGP 6600GTChipsetGPUGeforce 6600GTCore clock500MHzPixelPipelines8MemoryMemory Clock1000MHzMemory Size128MBMemory Interface128-bitMemory TypeGDDR33D APIDirectXDirectX 9OpenGLOpenGL 1.5InterfaceInterfaceAGP 4X/8XPortsD-SUB1DVI1TV-OutHDTV/S-Video/Composite OutVIVONoTV TunerNoGeneralRAMDAC400 MHzMax Resolution2048x1536@85HzSLI SupportedNoOperating Systems SupportedWindows 2000/XPSystem RequirementsIntel Pentium III, AMD Athlon or compatible CPU 64MB System Memory or above CD-ROM Requires AGP 8x slot compliant motherboard
