My friend can play BF2 with all the ATi goodies on with the PCE ver. I'm lucky to get BF2 running on high with no ATi goodies on:shadedshu

Your system is too slow? :roll:

Its the same card. It will perform the same as its not remotely close to handling the pci-e bus difference Vs AGP. :)

I don't think there is such thing as an XP 3700+, since, XP's are only Thoroughbread and Barton cores, no San Diego. You're thinking about an Athlon 64 3700+, not XP.

I know I know, I was going to upgrade everything but instead I bought a killer set of headphones and a Fatily card with a new power supply. Which ened my upgrade Idea, I was going for x1900xt with a 3700 sandiago.

And I really want to wait for AMD 4x4 before I do my next upgrade with Crossfire DX10 with Vista.
---------
I just bought this x1600 for 160 2 months ago and bout a zalman 7300 led for it(thats 200 bucks) So I think I could get a little more use out of it. By the way the Hid IceQ is a better cooler than that, I ran -11c now I run 34c with the zalman kinnda cray it cost me 25 oc points.


I just want to play BF2 all the way maxed out it a $100 would solve this I'm all game. So would a XP3200 barton do this for me?

i dont think its your cpu holding you back to play bf2 maxed you need 2 gig of ram upgrading to a xp3200 isnt going to see any improvement, if your going to spend 100$£ etc go for the ram

thats not a bad score 4100 on your setup my highest is 4800 on 05

also id really like to see PROOF of 6500 with a x1600PRO not that your lying lol it would just pi*s the hell out of me as i cant get over 4800

I couldn't believe it either, went first from a 9500@9700 to x1600pro agp (little increase, so i thought, ok upgrade cpu) went from xp2800+ to a 3700+sandiego and little to no difference in 3dmark (under 700 difference) thought, OK, ordered a X1900GT, World of a difference ;)

an xp3200 isnt worth your money even the s754 stuff beats those (my a64 3000 stock beats it) not to mention even w/ a massive oc my a64 @ cruise (2.4ghz) tops there super pi, sandra soft gaming etc not to mention you can use vista 64 bit on them

and for the price of a axp3200 you could order a cheap mobo and a64 w/ agp8x and ddr and just swap your stuff over
