Thanks for your recommendation of the Nvidia GTX 275!
When the Battlefield Bad Company 2 Demo came out, I was running and an Nvidia 7900. That, along with my rather old system specs (Win XP, Duo Core E6600, 2 GB RAM), BC2 played like a PowerPoint.
Seeing that I wasnâ€™t going to be able to get a new system for some time, I figured I would try a new graphics card first. Not knowing where to start, I just started looking around asking people and getting confused.
Then I checked out Maximum PC (both the magazine and online) and noticed that the performance/price point you guys discussed a lot, at the time, was the GTX 275 (and even the 260).
Well, needless to say, I am pleased with my purchase. BC2 plays like a charm (I average 45-70 FPS depending on the map and amount of chaos)
What else is cool is that Iâ€™ve been playing some older games now and cranking up the graphicsâ€¦I like the new found eye candy.
(now this is where Iâ€™m going to get everyoneâ€™s â€œadviseâ€
