  • How will this computer run battlefield2?

    I just won a new computer with the following specs:

    AMD athlon 64 3700+ (socket 754 i believe)
    1 gig pc 3200 (will probably dual channel with another stick)
    Evga Nvidia 6600gt 128mb agp 8x
    500 watt Powersupply.
    No OS (will probably put xp on it).

    What kind of settings do you think I should be able to run on this machine? I probably wont get the stick of ram for a few weeks.

    You WON it? Lucky *bleep*. The 6600 is definitely the bottleneck in that rig. Everythign else is pretty good. Hopefully that MB is PCI-E so you can upgrade to a 7800. I'd say you could run 1027 x 768 at mostly medium settings.

    The 128 meg on the video card is hurting.

      Ditch the 6600. That machine deserves better.

      3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

          I have a P4 2.4Ghz with a 6600gt 128meg agp and 1.5GB ram and I run 1024x768 on all medium settings and 2xAA. I get ~30-38fps in most areas. Didn't they just release the 7800GS agp? That would be nice. Too bad the MB is socket 754 with an agp slot.

            True. And a 7800GS (AGP version) does perform better than the 6800 Ultra by 5-10 FPS and would be much better than the 6600, but PCI-E 7800s perform way better than the AGP alternative. The extra PCI-E bandwidth shows its colors. But the 7800GS is a good way to go if you don't plan on upgrading for another year. It could hold you off. With the 7800GS you could run BF2 on HIGH with 1280 x 1024 on that rig, possibly having to drop a couple options to medium (like lighting and shadows).

              Go for 1024x768 and medium settings.. should get nice framerates even with the 6600GT. My AMD64 3000+, 1.5GB, and 6600 gets around 30FPS with those settings..

              The 3700+ may be socket 939. If it's 2.2GHz, then it is. If it's 2.4GHz, then it's 754.

                  im probably not going to touch the video card until the summer, when I will actually use the computer more frequently. This computer will probably stay home while I am dorming

                    Hide your daughters, Drunk is coming... (Wait a second, that was not the expression to use for the new rig)

                      i've got a 3500, 1 gig ram and a 6600gt and I can set everything on high except lighting and dynamic shadows w/ 2x aa and I get swell framerates (~35fps).
