    (PowerColor ATI Radeon X850 XT 256MB DDR3 VIVO TV-Out/DVI (AGP) - Retail (GX-058-PC)

    and secondly what would handle bf2 better, the above or a 6800gs.

    My current spec of my PC is

    pentium 4 3.0g

    Eh? That card has been out for a while, i have one i bought a few weeks ago ^^

    I've never had a 6800gs, but from what i read around the forums, the x850xt is the better card.

    Welcome to the forums. :)

    As above the x850 XT is better, and will handle BF2 better. :)

    I think he means whens it due back in stock, as its on pre-order at the moment, hopefully if Gibbo comes on again today then he'll be able to let you know, as he deals with all the cards at OcUK. :)
