    no, definelty not. Not Bf2142 and definetly not oblivion. Can you get a pc with a different card? I dont think you can get a decent car (6800 possibly) for under 50 bucks... Maybe off ebay though//

    What PC are you getting? The 6150 SE is not even a graphics card, it is integrated graphics chip. My computer at work had one of those and sometimes UT 2004 lags on it!

    The 6800 is a mid ranged card. It could play BF2, I had one and it played BF2 on medium/low with around 25 fps.

    You need to understand nvidia's lineup of graphics cards. The way it goes, is usually the higher the number, the better the card. (A 7800 is better than a 7600, etc) However, when you get into the 8 series of nvidia's lineup, the 8400 is worse than a 7800GTX. Basically, you need to know about nvidia and ATi. ATi cards are different. They have a "x" in front of their newer cards, but the same thing applies, the higher the number, the better the card.

    Also, get a card with at lease 256mb of ram.

    You can visit Toms Hardware, they have a a VGA chart that compares the performance of video cards. Just search "toms hardware vga charts" without the quotation marks.
