I just bought the game but I think my video card wont support it my system config. is the following:

* 1.33 Ghz AMD Athlon MMX 3Dnow

* 256 MB Memory

* Video 32mb NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64

Do I have to replace the video card? The game loaded find, the Direct X looks good 8.1 version. It loads slow, crashes & if it loads the colors look pyscodelic even @ 256 setting.

Your comments I really dont want to return the game to Best Buy. Does a upgraded video card cost alot???

Thanks, Osk

I just bought a VisionTek NVidia GeForce 4 MX420 for $100.00 at Media Play, but I think you can get a GeForce 4 for as low as $75.00 if you shop around, though I dont know if one that cheap is as good (I doubt there is a difference).

Read the threads here about sound settings and soundcards and the way they affect videoperformance in BF before you spend extra money!

Hi h20spin,

Yes you will have to replace your video card. The game requires a vid card that has "Hardware Transform and Lighting", any vid card by nvidia from the original GeForce and after has this support, as do many of the ATI cards, and don't forget the matrox Parhelia and the soon to be released Nvidia FX.

If you get the Gf4 MX series cards get at least the 440 not the 420, the 440 and 460 have higher memory bandwidth. Which card you get depends on your budget, get the best you can afford but don't go below the Gf4MX series.

Have fun
