    Lol. My system is about the same as yours. I am in the top 1%.

    But people with a 7800GT graphics card, don't really need to know whether or not their system will meet the minimum requirements now do they ;)

    Pop!

    Hmmmm,
    I don't think so a 128 mb, radeon SE 9200, PCI card with only 768Mb of sys RAM, if it does run I'd think it be on lowest settings and still be minimum FSP.

    Since Battlefield 2 does NOT support that low of a graphics card, I think if it will play at all, it will be an unsatisfactory experience. Plus, your CPU is almost at the minimum. The minimum is 1.7GHz and yours is 1.8GHz.

    So, "reasonable graphics"? In my opinion, no. If you haven't bought the game yet, I think it would be waste of money to try to run it on your present system.

    Most of the game performance depends on the videocard not the processor so it would be a better investment to get a better video card and leave the proc at 1.8Ghz. . . I played Guild Wars before on a P3 600 mhz with a 6600GT and it ran at 27 FPS average at max settings LOL. BTW i got top 14% in that game test thingy.

    I think if you want to buy another motherboard, processor, graphics card and anything else that goes with it (RAM, power supply, etc.), go ahead and get it. However, if you're getting in this deep, it's not much more to build a completely new PC from scratch. You can keep your old PC intact and working and use it as a backup or other family members can use it for surfing or whatever.

    Just a suggestion. You don't have to do it.

    Uhh..

    Windows 2000 Is Not Supported. It works on some machines, but it has been reported that some maps have trouble loading. ANd i know the euro forces expansion has alot of trouble with Win2k.

    And that is not even talking about you hardware.

    I tried running the game on a 2.4Ghz p4 with a 9600 and 768Mb of RAM. Whoa. Maps took forever to load, graphics were bad, and choppy.

    Will it work...yes

    Will it be fun...that may be a different story.
