    Hi all,


    I am looking for a new graphics card – max spend is £100, my current system is an Athlon XP 2200 with 1.5 gb ram and an nvidia 6200 (256mb) which does not seem to be very good at BF 2 at all.

    It will be an AGP card – mainly used for battlefield 2 (online) can I have your best recommendations please (ATI or Nvidia – not bothered as long as I get good results with it)!

    Will a better card beef the game up for me?

    Also, is a gaming mouse worth getting?

    Cheers,

    Pete

    2nd hand X800 would be a good start.

    As far as gaming mice go, I love my MX518

    I'm not sure any card for £100 will be good for any modern game unless the card is 2nd hand
