Definately!

Even at the original price of $70 it is worth it. Now that it's available at $20 it's a steal!

I'm in wholehearted agreement with the others, but if your integrated GF2 is an MX model expect to play on minimum settings. As was suggested plan on some future upgrading.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A word of caution. Onboard graphics is not supported in FB. You may find yourself having to upgrade. This should at least be a consideration.

You and FB will be fine.

what is this?

Integrated motherboard video less than 2 years old works fine in FB, with very low settings. I am waaaayy too embarassed to say exactly why I would know about this, so I won't. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Now, unless there is something particularly bad about mixing FB with Nvida's particular integrated chipset, who knows. That I don't know exactly. You will find out soon enough. If not you can get a cheap AGP card for less than 100%.

Lowest grafix quality settings are recommended until you upgrade.

1.66 Ghz is fine--so you got a Pentium or AMD 2000+ or something. Good enough. I got 1.4x GHz AMD 1700+. I got a 2000+ laying around, too lazy to put it in.

If it runs the LOMAC demo, I would say it should run FB also.


edit: My cautionary comment concerning onboard video comes from experience in tecnical support. There is always the option of starting a new thread asking if anyone is running FB with your vid and their results.

I am currently running FB on a XP1600 with a gig of DDR. You can get a 9500Pro128 at Comp USA for $129 if there are any left with no rebates. I would suggest you get a 512 stick of ram and upgrade your video and you should be ok..not perfect but well enough to really really enjoy the sim on excellent settings. You can spend about $175 if you shop around and do both things and it would be worth every penny. Especially if you are into WW2 sims....you wont look back and you will wonder why it took you so long.

Shame on all of you guys responding! You forgot to warn Korupt56 about how addictive this game will be!!! I get cold sweats and go through withdrawal every time HyperLobby goes down!
