Yeah it will be fine dude. Nah, the P4 shouldn't bottleneck it. It will be fine The 8600GT performs a little better than the 7600GT -- and it ran BF2 fine. Maybe not on 8x AA, but 6x should be fine, with the settings on pretty much high.

not really abit yes but your fps will be fine on high settings trust me.
my brother has a 8600gt running n a P4 @ 3.0 with 1gb of ram and
he plays both games fine without lag apart from loading into BF2 but thats just lack of ram.

EDIT: my spelling is poop

8600gt - Inno 3D - £76.94
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126974/rb/28000997171

Then use google checkout and super saver delivery.

Your total for a DX10 card will then be £70 delivered, a great deal IMO


EDIT: My mate bought this the other day and has acheived 1Ghz on the core, so it a good OC'er aswell.
I will be buying this for my build soon
Or just as an upgrade with a PCI-E 478 board

I have the same card and i can max out all the games that i have with aa and af.It has no problems playing BF2 or 2142 it it even play oblivion very well.I also comes with DX10 so you can play newer games like crysis when to comes out.I will be getting a new vidoe card later this year thow but if all you what to do is play games like that then you will have no problems.Also make sure that you hale atleast 2 gigs of ram.

buy 8600GT for DX10, if u're a gamer in the future

and if u're gonna stick with XP, get 7600/7900...

I'm kinda regretting myself, cause no custom resolution setting in Vista
