    By the way here is my specs:

    CPU Type Intel Celeron, 2400 MHz (24 x 100)
    Motherboard Name MSI MS-6577
    System Memory 1024 MB (DDR SDRAM)
    Ati Radeon 9500 256MB

    With any new graphics card you reccomend me to buy i would really like to be abl to get the full potential out of it, And how much will the new graphics card improve my battlefield 2 play? at the moment, with these specs, im getting lag with everything low.. bad i know.. Thanks, sorry for my endless topics and posts but it's all just confusing me and you guys help alot.. hope you dont mind :)

      my 2 cents would be to get a new mother board and a P4 or AMD....celeron is not going to perform well much longer....
      that sounds like a good idea trooper.

                so your board is P4 but has a celeron on it...?

                i just did a conversion to american dollars...nice peice of cash, you get that card and maybe you would be set for a while..with the remainder maybe get a p4

                  What I'd recommend is hanging on to that 170 and putting it towards a new card for the new MB and processor and whatever else you're going to buy. Since you're planning on upgrading anyways, I don't much see a point in getting a new AGP card right now. Or have those plans changed?

                    Yeah if you're getting new stuff buy a card said new stuff. I second the EVGA 6600GT though but Leadtek and BFG are also good brands.And whatever you do DO NOT BUY FROM TIGERDIRECT.Monarch Computer is very good and ships to England Oh... and BTW, how? :)

                        Tiger Direct has a pretty bad reputation for messing up orders. Just look at their reselleratings score

                          If you can't get more then 170 to buy new CPU, mobo and PCI video card, I would recommend ATI 850XT PE card that will work on your AGP slot.

                            The plans have sort of changed about the mobo and cpu i was going to get, my dad had allready baughtme the psp ( he sed he didnt ) so that kina stuffed it for me, i jus found out i got a pci slot aswell as agp, so there are no good mobos + cpu good for around tht price? thanks

                              Do you mean PCI-E or regular PCI? Some mobos have both. There really isn't a huge speed difference but i would still reccomend PCI-E. I would still get a 6600GT card in either case.
