Is this card OK for FB? I got a Pent 4 1.7gHz cpu. Im on a budget so I don't want to spend more than 125 US for it.

thanks

Depends on the settings you want to play with. I am planning to buy this one also. From what I understand, you can buy a Ti4600 for under $125 on eBay, and I think it would run better. This card costs about $80 on eBay. These are prices for used ones of course.

Now, the only card I played FB on was a TNT2 so all of what I wrote is based on what people here told me, and reviews on a very helpful Russian website. Here:

Worth taking a look (most of the information is in English)

I read your thread. I too am looking for a vid card. With the available ones out there, Im confused. I have a 70dollar gift card from COMP USA and I have to get a 256RAM chip also. Its getting expensive to play FB.

Does the card have an expiration date? If it doesn't, I'd put it some where out of sight and forget about it, until you'll have to buy some software in CompUSA. The store is just too expensive. Check whether you have a Fry's Electronics nearby (www.frys.com (http://www.frys.com)) . Hardware is cheap, I was going to buy 256MB DDR PC2100 for $30 there, cheaper then on eBay!!!. Anyway, from what I here on this forum, 256MB is not enough to run the game smoothly. As for buying the card, look on pricewatch.com

Check this out:

I am sure I'll buy this - cheap and has a return policy.
Good luck.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.
