Here is a link to the specs.

I think if you turn everything down, it may run ok, but it won't be great.

I could not get it to run on a:
AMD 2000+
6800GT AGP 256MB
768MB of ram.

I think the processor just ran out of steam though. You have a much better processor.

I dont think that I will bother to get it [crying]
If I am going to need to turn all of the stuff down in order to play that is a drag. I have been looking at upgrading my PC and getting a laptop and then giving this PC to my son. But the cost of a new laptop that can do all of the things I want it to is crazy $$$$.

I've got less of a system than yours and it's running only a little jerky. The problem is, I'm not going to be able to just jump into this thing -- it's different enough from every other FPS I have that I'm going to have to learn it before I'm up to a remotely competent level.

Maybe I could give it a shot. Looks like a great game.
I was a Counter Strike player for quite a while, is the game play similar ?

I bet it runs fine, some of the graphic "extras" will have to be toned down, game does a reasonable job with auto settings.

Brian,

I downloaded the 1.4 and 1.41 patches. Installed them both, but when I log in it says 1.41 is available still and my version is showing 1.21 or 1.12 or something other than 1.4+. Have you heard of this issue?

I was still able to get my ass kicked online though... [smile]

Was at target this weekend, The Delux edition has both BF2 and the BF2 expansion packaged as one. I think it we like $39.99

They also had bf1942, bfvietman, and like 2 other bf games bundeled in one box for under $15. Of course the wife was with me and said, "Maybe you should wait for 'Santa'?"

As we had the kids with us I kept my mouth shut.. but in my head I was thinking, "... why doesn's santa have a big cup of shut the [email protected]#& up and let me buy game now?" [angry]

so I may be seeing you guys on the BF after christmas [rolleyes]

If you're going to buy a BF generation game for the first time, I'd recommend BF 2142 instead of BF 2. The dynamics of the game, while futuristic, are much more advanced. There is just more to the game.

That's the one I bought. The Special Forces expansion. It's a good mod.

Wow that is kind of weird. I didn't realize there was a new patch out, but when I logged in it said I should download it. My version still says 1.1.2 something. I'll patch it when I get home from work and see what it says.

Stop at the store and get a new head set. They are cheap. [wink]

I won't know you're in the channel if I'm busy shooting commies...

I can go the really cheap route and tape the pc mic to my face...

I've actually never used TS before. I'll have to set up all my levels in the options.
