  1. I have a Dell Inspieon 600m and want to update my video card so I can play games like Battlefield 2. I currently have Mobility Radeon 9000 and need something with more ram.

    I'm pretty sure you are stuck with that video card. The chip is soldered to the board. The mobiilty 9000 is also a discrete GPU, so the amount of memory you have is what you get. There's no way to upgrade, as far as I know.

    If I get a new CPU will that be possible?

    Okay..... How about a Dell Demension 4500 with a ATI Radeon 9800 Pro card? Can that run BF2?

    1. Theres no way to upgrade the ram on the card.
    2. No, getting a new CPU won't help.
    3. That 9800 might help, but integrated cards usually can't run much.

    I'm not sure. I think 9800PROs are pretty good, so it should run but probably on low settings.
    As I said, it should work, but I've never played BF2 and I've never used a 9800pro.

    If you want a better gaming system, why not just build a custom PC?
