Maybe you just don't have enough RAM

BF-2 requires more than 1gb RAM

np's my pleasure :)

7800 GS possible fixes;
1) Go to:
Start->control panel ->display->settings->advanced->troubleshooting->> below the hardware acceleration slider there is a box you have to untick, (enable write combining). This has been known to cause issues with some AGP cards, I used the only AGP card I have - my 6800GT to illustrate.



2)Do you have 'fast writes' turned off, it's a known cause of AGP GC issues?
3)I have seen some reports of Nvidia drivers(even the latest ones I linked you to before) causing probs with your card. I never found any real substantial evidence of this though.
4) Worst case scenario - Re-install BF2 and see if this clears things up. If it doesn't I feel that you may have a defective card and RMA is your only route. Keep us updated mate.

well actually in malta they dont RMA if he starts talking rubbish like improper installiation i will complain to XFX (i registered the card) and they will sort it out between them

Enabling 'fast writes' is done through your BIOS. I'm sorry to see that you had to return your card, hopefully all will be fixed by the time you get back...good luck:)
