    Default ati crossfire and bf2 known problem...

    yo,
    ati guys in case your having issues i found this in my bf2 1.21 patch support file


    KNOWN ISSUE
    ATI CROSSFIRE CARDS
    - Crossfire cards with 256 Megs of memory, running in CrossFire mode will run out of memory at very high resolution settings.
    On very high resolutions, such as 1920x1440 with 6x antialiasing. In CrossFire mode the ATI drivers are more restrictive
    about where resources are allocated, and as a result run out of memory sooner than with a single board. This running out of memory causes
    the device context creation to fail. The result is that the game just sits in a loop with a black screen. If you experience a context creation failure
    change your resolution to a lower setting (e.g. 1024x768 or even lower).

    right below that file states below

    CHANGE of VIDEO SPECS
    - GeForce FX 5900 family:
    GeForce FX 5900 Ultra
    GeForce FX 5900
    GeForce FX 5900XT
    GeForce FX 5950 Ultra
    GeForce FX 5900ZT
    GeForce PCX 5900
    - For these cards, the default video settings have been changed to LOW.
