Yes it will but to what degree I am not sure. I would recommend getting a different video card like the 9600 Pro. The SE is a tuned down 9600 Pro so it has less power. If you already have the card then you will be fine but you may need to use lower settings.

Yea, go for the 9600 Pro or XT, they are much better.

I have the XT version and I can run FarCry on HIGH settings with no problem (at least not yet) and BF Vietnam on HIGH as well with no problems.

Trust us, get the PRO or XT, you wont regret it!

9600 se is comparable to 9200 :-/ ... in other words .. crap. Don't waste your money if you expect to play newer games on it.

The 9600 SE is about the performance of a 7500. (the sacrifice for cutting down the memory bandwidth in half)

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

well i know it its only a midde class gfx card, but the rest of my specs are

512 ram
1333+ amd xp
msi k7t266 pro2

so a high end card would be pretty pointless, i dont think my system will be able to handle it
