look at your other thread. this didn't really need to be posted again. even a 6200 can play games like BF2. i wouldn't reccomend anything less than a 6600gt though if you can afford that. best overall value would be the 6800gs

I'd recommend getting a PCIE motherboard so you won't be running a slower AGP version of that expensive card. If you're willing to pay the premium for a nice card like like you might as well go all the way.

howmuch would a mobo with a pci-e slot cost and how hard would it be to switch the motherboards?
