    Hi there.
    Im new so be gentle.
    Heres my specs:
    abit A-N68SV
    GeForce 7025
    AMD Phenom X3 8450 2.1Ghz
    250 Maxtor HD.

    Ok now I'm not sure all that information is required for my actual question but here goes anyway:

    I was wondering if the XFX nVidia 6800XT 256MB PCI-E card would be a decent enough upgrade?
    The only reason I ask is because I'm on a tight budget and I've found this card on the net for under £40.
    So was just wondering if this will be a decent enough upgrade to my current system?
    Basically, if it can handle Battlefield 2 decently then I'll be happy.

    Thanks in advance.

    The general rule of thumb is any Dedicated graphics card is better than onboard. Your system specs are higher than the minimum required for battlefield 2, although your CPU is slightly under the recommended (at 2.4ghz). You havent listed your RAM memory but for BF2 min is 512mb, rec is 1gb. And yes the 6800xt will handle the game.
