  1. Well my son come home with a new game (Battlefield 2) installs it and it won’t run. “Dad, can you fix this?”:confused: “We don’t meet the minimum requirements.”:knock:
    It’s a HP Pavilion a350n.
    1. Motherboard – ASUS TeK Computer INC. 'P4SD-LA'
    2. Graphic card - NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X - 64 MBytes
    3. Memory - 1536 MB
    4. CPU - Intel Pentium 4 HT One Physical Processor / One Core / 2 Logical Processors
    5. CPU Speed – 2.80 GHz
    6. Power Supply Make/Model – Zinfandel ATX-250-12ZD
    7. Watt output/Amperage - 250w - +3.3V 12A - +5V 27A - +12V 17A - -12V 0.8A - +5VSB 2.0A
    Battlefield 2 needs at least 128Mb video. So he says he will pay up to $100 for a new video card. I’m looking at NVidia GeForce AGP8x with 256Mb. Or do ya’ll like the ATI Radeon better? Which model of which card would be best for around $100.

    if you have about a 128 bucks(includes tax and shipping)here is a link for the card I use and the core and the memory clocks on it are wrong it really runs at 600 and 1400mhz, i play battlefield 2142 on max settings and it plays most games on high, i pretty much have the same specs as you.

    And you have enough power supply for it? ATI's website says it needs a 350W or greater power supply. Mine is 250W.
