wrong subforum. this is for issues around bf2s.com - the site -.

i'll move this to tech. btw, in that section, you will find a lot of info about people's rigs and what they'd recommend for BF2

Hehe, the best card would obviously be the best card out. But, to play under high, u really dont need any higher than a Geforce 6800 GT

Get A 6800 Gs, There Just Over 200 And Are Considered The Best Performance For The Price.

If you're refering to 'roll' as in, rolling on your side when in the prone position, you can't. That's nothing more than an animation in the game. You'll see it when people walk sideways while hitting the prone key, and you've probably done it yourself as well.

If you've played America's Army, you actually see yourself rolling in 1st person view, but not here.

Oh, and make sure you got at least 1GB of RAM or more, because without it, even with a 6800 GT or whatever, you really wont be able to take advantage of the card without the RAM.

You will be able to set things to high, and you'll see the difference.. but without the RAM, the loading times are not worth the eye candy from the high settings. This also includes the initial 'cache'ing lag that happens even after you are in the game.

Isn't BF2 realy 'heavy' on hard drive use as well? It does end up using alot of virtual memory. Even with at least 1GB of memory.

If this is true, isn't hard drive performance just as important as the ram?

there is an image of captains bars in the Bf2 game files.  he probably found it and simply manipulated the code for his sig to show that image instead of his real rank. 


Edit: Oh and if you right click that part of his sig one of the options is block images from ...Img336.Imageshack, so I was right.

Actually, I made that insignia myself, never saw the real one so I don't know what it looks like.

I believe so, to make room for virtual memory you sould defrag your hard drive.
Fragmented files slow your computer down.
Programs like Diskeeper will defrag files, but it takes a good hour or so.

Oh and if you have a tight budget, the 6600 gt is the way to go.
Man I wish I had 7800 gtx.
But the 6800 gt or the 7800 gt are also quite good

Nvidia does not make graphics cards, only the chipsets.

Why say this? It contributes nothing, and it's just a flat out fanboy statement. My x850xtpe is better than the 6800 ultra. Don't be so closed minded, you cannot go wrong with either brand, neither brand "sucks".
