  1. As it stands I know nothing about computers, just that mine does not support BF2. the video card I have now is integrated which causes the first problem because I'm not sure if it is even possible to upgrade. Below is a list of my system information. If anyone could help I thank you ahead of time. If you need more info just LMK what to look for. Thanx again.

    System Manufacturer: Sony
    System Model: PCV-RS221(UC)
    BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.0
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.66GHz
    Memory 504MB RAM
    DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c


    Name: Intel(R) 82845G Grapicis Controller
    Manufacurer: Intel Corperation
    Chip Type: Intel(R) 82845G/GL Chip
    DAC Type: Internal
    Total Memory: 64.0 MB
    Display Mode: 1024 x 768 (32 bit)(75Hz)
    Moniter: Plug and Play Monitor

    That is all the info I could find. I'm not really sure if any of it will really help.

    I think the main problem I am having is how can I tell which cards will work in my computer and which will not.

    Any card that supports 4X/8X AGP support will work in your system so u will not have any problems. :grinthumb
