Maybe, but I don't think so. IIRC, even under the BEST of conditions, the 6600 can only play BF2 on about medium.

Ok So if i were to get a 6600 and play it under medium(which is fine with me) do I have to change the power supply and/or processor? Because it says I need a 300 watt power supply and I think I have a 250. Also is the processor ok? Please help me out. Thanks.

Yes you probaly would need a new powersuppply for the 6600, but the 6600's are in agp 8x and you only have a 4x slot so it will run slower than it's fastest speed. you might be better off getting a new mobo and proc though, but we can try to make this work. I say buy an other 512mb ram, a geforce 6600 and you should be alright on maybe low settings because of your proc. and you videocard in a 4x slot.

New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
