Have you got the two issued patches

I think the basic problem is BF2 is a resource hungry piece of software. If you are running a fx5200, even with 256mb of ram - it's going to sruggle.

The sluggish behaviour is a good sign the card isn't coping well. In addition to ram it needs a good chip set and the FX52000 is aging.

Maybe looking at actaul RAM would help, depending on what you ahve, also what processor you run - they can be cheap these day on mid range CPU's.

Also doing some of the standard things like a disk clean up and then a defrag can only help....

HAve a read of the specifications demanded by the game click here

The fx5200 is not supported by the game which suggests that it is not up to the job,but you would probably get away with that. For you by the need to use a pci version is the real problem.These are considerably slower than the same card in AGP form.What motherboard/pc model do you have?.It seems a bit strange to me that one that can run a 2.8GHz P4 processor is not equipped with an AGP slot.

Could be an matx board but a lot of those still have an AGP slot
