Not really, it's got a bad leak.... one I could fix if I had the time and the tools. I think I'm going to have to call a friend of mine and let him deal with it.

Update on this leak, I though that it might be a head gasket leak but as it turns out it just might only be an intake leak. This I can deal with (fewer bolts and alot easier to get to)
We'll see.

I have been playing with the video settings on BF2 for several hours today, if you have a similar system to me then these ARE the optimal settings (Maintaining an average of 65-80fps dependant on map) any other higher combinations will have a framerate lower than 60fps in battle scenes lowering your speed advantage on the opposition, you can whack the texture filtering upto high with a drop of aproximately 10-15fps and occasional stutter(which makes a fair difference to gameplay), this resolution is based on a 19-inch crt monitor.
Having 128mb of video memory means that texture/terrain on high or 4xAA will have a large negative impact.
Note: The settings are designed to give the best visual experience at what in my opinion are good framerates. These results are using the 78.03XG drivers supplis by Tweaks'r'us.

Just got the demo, gotta say i was very impressed, my Radeon 9550 could handle it very well, only on low settings though, still very impressed.

I will give it a shoot but in 1280x1024. I curently play on 1024x768 all max and 4xAA with no problems with 77.77 modded drivers. It's running great on AOA server. I'll report back what's happening in 1280x1024

Thanks for the info man !
