Arrow BF2 + G-Card = ?

Can anyone reccomend a graphics card that will pretty much dominate Battle Field 2? For a good price?

Thanks.

100 - 150 maybe.

And dominate may have been to much of a strong word lol, I just want to play it on high settings.

If you have pci-e then this one is for you http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130017

If you dont well there is this x800gto http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102608 which I personally modded to have 16 pipes and oc'ed to 425/1050 which isnt as good good as the 7600gt but the higher end cards like 7800gs's and such are really expensive. There is also the 6800xt http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130017 which I heard is decent.

a 9800xt will play high settings, a 7800GS will dominate. Thats AGP. An X1600pro or 6800GT wil be in the middle.

supposivly a x1600=6600 so I got a x800gto and its better than a 6800gt/gs and ultra after some soft modding and oc'ing. If I got my ati silencer 5 I could hit 450/1200.

My friends beat my 6800GT flashed and OCed beyond 6800ultra which beat out my friends X850XTPE. So that supposedly is wrong.

I'm thinking I might just got with this ^^^

Wouldn't it be smarter to go with that sinse DX 10 is coming out soon, and getting a more high end card would be pointless?

That card I think wouldnt dominate BF2 at all but the x800gto isnt that expensive. Plus DX10 is coming out when Vista comes out which is still months away but somewhat close. I would recommend the x800gto or 6800xt over the 6600 because its not that much more expensive and its a **** of alot better
