    I just bought the BFG 6200 from BestBuy for $149.99 - $20 MIR - $49.99 Free game (BF2, was gonna buy it anyway) = $80

    So far I like it, I have max'd out my settings in COD: UO, Counter Strike: Source, Half Life 2 and BF2... So far so good

    How do you max out bf2 with that? I have a 9800pro (same as your card) and can only run bf2 on medium with 4x aa and af. Even then I get crappy fps in some places (center of dagin oilfields).

    Easily if he runs it at 800x600 or is just incorrect in his information. He could probably even run it at 1024x768 and have the settings up pretty high. I can max out setting on pretty much any game, but that's because I can't run at resolutions higher than 1280x960 because of my monitor.

    As for your 9800 Pro, sounds like something else is wrong. Either you are using bad drivers (update to the latest Catalysts right away), don't have enough system RAM, have a CPU too slow, or have a system that's running way too many programs.
    Edit: well never mind the CPU and RAM part, I just saw your signature.
    Here's what I play BF2 on with my 9800 Pro:
    Athlon XP 2400 Mobile, not overclock ATM
    512MB of RAM@PC3200 2-3-3-7
    Crappy motherboard I'm replacing next week when my NF7-S v. 2 comes
    Settings:
    1024x768 (for lack of monitor support for higher resolutions, also fixing that next week)
    The "high" choice.. I found manually changing the two options that don't go when I select "high" causes performance to just die, so I left them at low and medium where the game puts them.
    After I get my current motherboard and cooling issues fixed, the Mobile will be overclocked and the 9800 Pro will be, too. I'll see if it's still playable at 1280x960 (or 1280x1024 if EA was stupid and doesn't allow both).

    This is very easily playable and I don't get any lag in 64 player games, even when lots of shooting or large explosions are going on right in front of me. I haven't even thought about AA or AF, and I can probably afford to throw one or both on at a lower level.

    Really? Wow.

    So for instance, the people who can't play BF2 with thier cheapo 5700, and others having no issues with a 5500 with 256mb ram means nothing? In my opinion, I'd rather have the 5500. I'm arguing longevity, not performace. If your on a low budget, thats what counts.

    A 5500 can't play BF:2 at all... It's below minimum requirements. While a 5700 will play it fine. It won't run with very high settings, but it will run.

    I haven't experince BF2 yet, and yet have i owned a 5500...for obvious reasons. Had a 5700, but can't really say anything about it compared to a 5500..cause yet i did not own one. I think yawg pretty much got my arguement covered with his comment.

    Oh, so that's how you can run it at high. I like my smooth edges, so I prefer keeping the settings lower and turning on the aa. I ran at 1024x768. I'm not running the latest drivers because I heard they had some rendering issues with textures in bf2. Sound is on high btw (hardware). Does the sound quality decrease performance at all if you have a sound card? My fps can be high when I'm playing the Songhua map, but when I go play Zatar Wetlands where there are around 16 players in the center base my fps goes to ****.

    Use the latest drivers. They work fine for me.

    Try it without AA and with higher settings. The higher settings improve quality a lot more, AA is just for when you can handle more but not a full resolution bump.

    The CPU overhead does increase with improved sound quality, even if you have a nice sound card, but I wouldn't worry about it. Your GPU is the limitation so you should probably be able to have the added overhead without noticing it.

    Well I tried the 5-6 drivers and I must say, it looks like a piece of **** to me. With aa/af at 4x, it didn't even look like I had aa or af on at all. Jaggies everywhere. Jaggie here, jaggie there, jaggie shadows, jaggie wires, jaggie everything. I don't get what I'm doing wrong. I uninstalled the previous drivers with the ati unisntall utility, then used driver cleaner. All the settings are the same and it looks like total crap.
