Alpha was fun , but like Bob said getting to the second mcom was a pain. With that said the second part was funner than the first.

You are limited by the mobo but (if u can find one) i would go for a Q9550 cpu as an upgrade, your graphics are fine as is your memory,otherwise it's a new mobo & cpu etc.

I run a Q9550 with a GTX285 & BFBC2 runs very very well.

for bc2 upgrading the cpu from dual core to quad gave me a huuge boost to performance, my 5870 went from 30-40's to 60's+

yea, a dual core just doesnt cut it anymore. A buddy of mine just had a setup like that with Q9550. Sold the CPU on Hardforums for $160. That would be your best bet... a used Q9550 or 9560 unless you are ready to completely overhaul it.

I managed to get acces from a buddy to the Alpha yesterday. Felt alot like BF BC2 but with massive aliasing and less fps. I found it much easier too, I finished first in every match I played last night.

Is it still running? I was wondering if it was 12:00AM 8-1-11 or 12:00am 8-2-11 that it ends.
