Graphics Card

Okay I want to buy Battlefront one for PC, but my comp's graphics capabilities aren't sufficient. If I buy a better graphics card it should be fine, but I have a few questions.

1. The system requirements say it will run on 64 MB, but 128 with T&L and Pixel Shader are reccommended. Does anyone run the game on 64 MB without Pixel Shader, and if so does the game 'freeze up' or get 'jerky'?

2. Could someone reccommend the cheapest non-total-peice-of-crap graphics card for either 64 or 128 MB?

I can answer question 1 for you.

I have 2 computers, one of them has a 64mb without the T&L and Pixel Shader and one is a 64mb with the T&L and Pixel Shader.

Without the T&L and Pixel Shader you will have many framerate problems, and several maps won't run. Grenade explosions and smoke from taking off will also freeze up your game. With it your game will run much smoother.



The T&L and Pixel Shader support really make a difference, but if you're going to buy a new card I suggest investing in a 128mb card, unless you are on a tight budget.

Yes, 128MB of graphic card memory.
