    I play BF1942 alot and it lags. My current PC has
    2.08 GHz AMD Athlon XP
    512 MB DDR SDRAM
    120 GB Ultra DMA hard drive
    NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX w/ 64MB DDR video memory

    I want to spend $150 or under on the video card.

    Im sorta new to all this computer stuff also.

  3. 2.08 = 2600+ , same processor I have.

    I agree with pervisanathema, get a better video card and you'll see leagues of improvements. That is a pathetic card, that MX series.

    I have a Radeon 9600 Pro, I have everything maxed and run at 1024x768 and it looks great, no lag, also have a Gig of RAM, which may help on BF. I want to get another 160G drive and do a RAID0 for faster loading of the maps...
