Ive got a leadtek nvidia 6800 agp graphics card in my amd athlon 64 3000+, 768mb pc3200 ram, sb audigy zs, 80gb sata hard drive etc. So it should easily run battlefield 2. Until recently it would run battlefield 2 fine without any lag on medium-high settings. Since i re-installed windows xp and formatted my hard drive the other day i can now only run battlefield 2 on low settings. If i go any higher i get consistent unplayable lag. Though if i move the settings down to low now, i dont get any lag at all. Ive downloaded the latest nvidia drivers yet it still wont let me play above low settings. Please help, thank you

I only had the demo,but was able to run BF2 on an Ti4800,CPU2.2Ghz,1Gb RAM,so yours should be capable of it no bother.When you reinstalled XP,did you use your original mobo drivers for AGP(if it IS an AGP card,not Sli)or get updated version for your chipset?

What does a DirectX diagnostics test say?

Start>Run, type dxdiag & press OK.

Click on the Display tab. All the 3 - DirectDraw, Direct3D & AGP Texture Acceleration - should be enabled: see click here.

To test DirectDraw & Direct3D, press their respective buttons. Do they pass the test? G
