Firstly, I would've posted this in Hardware but since it is about a specific game I posted it here... Anyways I just wanted a quick answer. Right now my setup is - Athlon XP 2500+ (that's 1.8ghz stock overclocked to 2ghz during gaming) ASUS A7N8X-deluxe ver.2 ATi Radeon 9800pro 2 sticks of 256mb Kingston standard RAM (not enough clearly) Basically I am JUST able to play BF on 32 (+bit more) servers without experience TOO much stuttering and general software lag, however I have to lower my visibility to 80% to encourage smooth gameplay. I was thinking of an upgrade since I desperately need one, but for the moment upgrading to PCI-e is simply too costly not for me but probably for alot of people stuck in my position, so I was wondering instead of a fullsystem upgrade should I just upgrade my Graphics card and install new more powerful RAM? Lastly, is BF more of a Grapphics or CPU Intensive game? I really want to know this could solve my upgrade issues saving big $. And, I presume if BF2 was Graphics intensive for example Battlefield 2142 probably would be aswell?
