    Well i dont know what your talking about...but the 6800 does not come in PCI. It comes in PCI-E. They are two very different interfaces. (as far as performance)

    the 6800gt is kickass, but the new gtx7800 is an order of magnitude better. a decent 6600gt should be able to run bf2 with the highest of settings, assuming it had a capable system underneath it.

    IMO For BF2 (espcially when online) you should at least have it 1GB of ram . That would help make the game run alot smoother. ANd what resolution are you trying to turn up the card to. Overclocking the card could bring up the framrate a bit, but it will not help you all that much.

    i agree with the 1gb of ram minimum. i doubt you'll be playing only bf2, as there are plenty of other popular games (such as farcry) that will really use a lot of ram.

    take it easy, his question was fine. yes, an ati radeon x850 should run bf2 (among other games) nicely will all the graphics options checked.
    what i'm proposing may seem like a crazy idea, but perhaps you can use mathematics to help you answer the problem. believe it or not, the subtraction nessesary can be quite easy. you see, when someone reccomends 1GB of ram and you have half of that, the equation is as follows:

    g - y = how much more to buy

    in your case, g is the amount of reccomended ram, and y stands for your current amount. it is set up as follows:

    1024MB - 512MB = ? (how much more you need)

    i'm a busy man so you'll have to do the math yourself, but at a glance i'd expect it to come to about 512 mb of ram. please remember that this is theoretical and may or may not work out in your case. good luck.
