  1. I am going to give you some advice you might not want to hear but I am being honest with you. That machine will not be able to run bc2 even if you could stuff a 5970 in there. Your best option would be to sell that pc for whatever you can get for it and build a completely new rig. To build a decent pc to play bc2 ur lookin at 600bucks. if thats not an option stick with an xbox lol. But as it stands there is really nothing you can do with that pc to play bc2 or any modern game really. If you were to put a new video card in there you would be wasting your money. Good Luck
  2. What are you going to do with that machine?
    Playing games?

    Any card today would be bottlenecked by your Pent.4, so it wouldn't be wise to spend more money to this old PC...
  3. If you can't buy a new rig,then consider HD 3850 APG or HD 4670,they should handle BC2 fine(however they won't run at their full potential because your CPU will bottleneck them)
  4. the minimum specs are a core 2 duo @ 2ghz and 2gb ram. you have neither of these.
  5. if u have 17" to 19" monitor and u game at 800x600 or 1024x768
    then u can make it last a bit long.
    cuz most (almost all infact) games rely on gpu

    u've 305watts right?
    if its a tower (i mean SMALL MINI TOWER) then u can get a gt220.
    but another gig of ram is extensively recommended to get playable fps

    u can get butter fps if u arent a resolution buff. this is low end gaming :p
