I am aware that my comp is not a gaming comp, but I can modify it so that I can play Battlefield 2.

I'm looking into a GeForce 6600 GT 128mb GDDR3. My current motherboard is ASUS A8AE-LE and I think I have a powersuppyl of 300w.

Will all of this be good enough and that there is no risk of something bad happening to my comp, like my motherboard shortcircuiting.

Shattered OUT...

.... 128mb seems a bit low for that game..
I went out n bought a reasonably good one, which was 256mb , and mine didnt run brilliant it ran good enough to play and be dazzled, but at times it struggled.

nothing will happen to your pc, unless u overclock it too much.. if it gets to much to handle, itll prolly just crash.

.. afterall thats what microsoft is for isnt it?

SS,

The power supply is a little light 4 a 6600gt vid card.
The box says it requires a 350 watt or more power supply.
I happen to have that exact card myself.


Some research finds:
This comes from a HP/compaq computer
* Socket: 939
* Supports AMD Athlon64, AMD Sempron and Athlon 64 X2 processors

Front-side bus (FSB)
* 2000MT/s or 1600MT/s, depending on what the processor support

Memory
* Dual-channel memory architecture
* 4 x 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets support unbuffered non-ECC 4 GB 400/300 MHZ DDR memory modules
* Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB*

Expansion slots
* Three PCI
* One PCI Express (No AGP slot)


It is my understanding that battlefield 2 is a very demanding game.
Look to get the best processor/video card u can afford-remember it is pci-e

I agree. 128 MB is at the minimum requirements range (specs) for most new games. Rather invest in a bigger card and get some satisfactory gameplay.
