My Graphics "Card": NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430

Hello, I have recently installed Battlefield 2 and I have heard of all the problems of it and Vista together. I have tried running it on Xp (Service Pack 2) compatibility mode, running it as administrator, disabling User Account Control (UAC), and deleting the Battlefield 2 documents folder. I cant even play single player- for single player after it loads all the way when starting a game/map it says verifying client data (like normal) and then it skips/repeats the sound its making (like a scratched CD) and then goes to desktop and it says the windows has encountered a problem crap, and for multiplayer right when I join a server it freezes for a few seconds then goes to the same windows encountered problem error thing. It says I can run Battlefield 2 from System Requirements Lab with good speed. I read something awhile back about Battlefield 2 only being compatible with some video cards. While posting on another forum on this site someone said that my video card (NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430) is not actually a "card" and makes sense. So I have two questions- is it bad to have a video "card" integrated into the motherboard? and is my card compatible with Battlefield 2?

You would only have to make sure that your integrated graphics system is T&L capable. If not, it won't work. The list of graphics cards they list is likely cards that are T&L enabled. Check with Nvidia to see if this integrated chip is T&L enabled and/or if it's on the game's supported graphics card list. Numerous graphics cards that aren't listed will usually play a game (at least in my experience) if they meet the Direct3D and T&L requirements.

Hey, check out this 9500GT for just $15 after rebate:

Not a fantastic card but definitely better than the 6150SE & you sure can't beat the price.

If I do get a new card, can I have the intregrated one and a new one running at the same time? I replied the same thing on the other post I have, jam, but for now on I will reply everything on the other post I have (Video Card Issue Relating to BF2) so go there and answer all this nonsense.
