but an x1950xt would destroy games... but it comes at a 200+ price range for a AGP Card and u might need a PSU upgrade
Its not a flame war, the guys flat out saying a lie and I am correcting him. Thats the whole point why people come to these forums, for the TRUTH. Not lies and misinformation!

I have to go with Gabb there is no way that an x550 can max out Bf2. My 7900GS runs BF2 well but it doesn't max it out and my card is head and shoulders above the x550.

Relax! Both Gabb and nick! I know you guys are both trying to correct each other saying this and that, but it has to stop! NOW! :happy: Please? I think we should help the thread starter more then start flame wars in his own thread.

I am relaxed, at first I was just so amazingly offended that he was blatanly lying and no one was coming forward and telling him this, not to mention only 1 person backed up my claim. To be honest I'm very dissapointed at the forum, usually if I say something untrue, people are quick to correct me and good riddens for them doing that. However with this guy, it was like he had some immunity...

A technology computer forum should NEVER have information posted that is not true, no exceptions.

So someone doesn't rush out there with an x550 expecting optimal performance in BF2 when truth be told, they will get very dismal performance. I'd say around 10 FPS if you max the settings.

Originally you stated your card can max out settings without any lag, you refered to lag as in FPS lag, not ping/latency lag which you now claim what you originally ment. Your not making any sense, and frankly i don't think your worth the time.

BTW I suggest you get a 8800 GTS for 250 after MIR instead of the 8600 as the 8800 GTS performance is LIGHT years ahead of the 8600.
GABB, im talkting about lag you suffer when you have a high ping, i dont get a good framerate on high probarbly something like 5-10 FPS thats why i play it on low, this has gone way out of control

Your original statement:

"my x550 which is worth like $10 can run BF2 maxed out with out lag so you would see a difference in performance going from 4x to 8x. not so much due to hte interface but because 8x cards are so much more advanced than 4x cards,[/"

now tell me how anyone can infer from this that you ment internet latency lag and not the obvious FPS/graphical lag. Why even mention graphic cards when it comes to FPS/graphical lag as your ISP determines what your ping is. In only extreme cases do I believe system lag can actually affect ping.

This doesn't change the fact that your x550 runs BF2 at around 20 FPS (max) at high settings...why would you not mention this throughout this entire argument and keep talking about latency/ping lag?

You don't make any sense, and I believe you are mostly just trying to cover up your errors, end of debate.

yeah, i admit i didnt make any sense, my excuse is writing all that when i was tired and grumpy and not feeling too good, i always think of lag as high ping and what ever, i should have said:

"when i play BF2 maxed out on my X550, the frame rate is low, therefore i suffer from jerky gameplay, however i have a airly good internet connection meaning despite having jerky and insconsistent gameplay i dont suffer from internet lag or high ping"
