Hi, I was on at an ea website and I was looking at Battlefield 2 and I scanned my computer to see if I had the system requirments. All had good except my video card. My video card is an: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 . It says the minimum requirements for the video card: 100% DirectX 9 compatible 128MB Direct3D Card (GeForce FX 5700+"Radeon 8500, 9500+) Is it just that my DirectX is not updated? or is it my video card, and if my video card just completely sucks, just tell my cause I dont know.

You don't have a video "card"...the GF 6150 is built into the motherboard.

Try this site:

Okay I have everything updated now. Thank you jam for showing me that website, But is it a bad thing to have my card built in to the motherboard? Is it considered a bad quality "card"?

When it comes to gaming, onboard video can't keep up. Even low end gaming cards perform better than integrated graphics. If you wanna play games & play them well, you need a card...it's as simple as that. Don't waste your time on the 6150SE.

Have a look at the following. It's a review of the AMD/ATI 690G w/Radeon X1250 integrated graphics but it's shown in comparison to the GeForce 6150 & 6150SE. Scroll down to see the BF2 results. 22 FPS on low settings isn't gonna get it done. The minimum for acceptable game play is 30 FPS.

Your board has a PCI-express slot so you have dozens of cards to choose from & as I stated above, just about anything is better than integrated. You don't have to spend a ton of money, you just have to know how to weed out the good from the bad & get the best bang for your buck. Right now, the best budget gaming card available is the Radeon HD 4670. It offers decent performance plus it's not a power hog like many other gaming cards. It's so efficient that it doesn't require an aux power plug-in from the PSU so chances are, a PSU upgrade wouldn't be required.
