Default Re: 8800GTS 512 Replacement for Bad Company 2 smoothness

If you're looking to spend it all, which would probably be the best option given the video card in that range.... I'd suggest going with a 5850. It'll perform great (especially in BC2) and bring some new life to your rig.

An alternative that you should highly consider if your motherboard supports it would be something like a cheaper quad core ~$100 - $150 and a GTX 260 or 5830.

BC2 in particular gets a huge improvement from quad core cpus, but its not the only game taking that direction. More and more games are seeing huge advantages from quad core cpus
