Link doesn't work. My friend has that card and it runs BF2 on medium to high settings. But, XFX cards have bad reliabilty. I went through my XFX 6800, and my friends 6600gt went too. I got lucky and got a full refund so I could buy a BFG 7800gt.

THIS IS NOT A DOUBLE POST..... IT IS A POST REGARDING THE PERFORMANCE OF A CARD NOT A POST ON WHAT ONE I SHOULD BUY
