What will i need for the DX10?
I'm just lokking for something that can run BF2 right now with highest settings, caz the 6600GT is haveing a hala hard time doing it. I'm not lokking for the best, i just want the BF2 to run smoothly.

If i get another 6600GT for 55$ from a friend, will that increase the preformance for now, and then later i can get the one with DX10.

Thanks anyways.

P.S. When is the DX10 is coming out>,

getting another 6600GT for 55$ is a VERY good idea. it will probably bring it up to high settings or highest (not really sure)

A) The 7900GT will run a MSRP of $249, so it should fall around $249-$299.

B) The 7800GT's will fall to around $200 after the 7900GT's are released, so you can wait for that to happen

C) You can get a 6800GS now for $175 if you can wait.

A) Not to discredit you or anything, I read they'll be $300 MSRP, which will probably put them floating around $350.

B) Right on.

C) Right on.

Dual 6800GSes, for $310. Thats the only thing worth SLI'ing right now. It'll outperform a 7800GTX.

i'm not going to waste 300$ for the 6800GS.

I'll just get 6600GT sli for now.

BF2 runs at high (online) with everything highest. 2-12FPS
i took a 7300 from school, it ran at 7-23FPS.
second best patch installed...

you can check your FPS using Fraps, google it.

Its probably a good idea to keep the card and put the money towards something in the future. cos wen it comes to the point where youre gunna buy a 7900 or watever, you would sell the 6600GT on ebay or something, but having 2 of them is a lot harder to sell than the one. and you'd be saving too. so keep it. SLI is a waste unless you run resolutions at like 1900x1600
