Pros Intense Action, Great Graphics, Wonderful MP Settings and Gameplay
Cons Specs are a bit too high but can be handled with a fairly new machine
Summary I have a AMD Athlon 64 3400+ (2.4 Ghz) Machine with a Radeon X600 Pro Graphics card and the game runs without lag in mid-end settings. THe graphics is so crisp, even in mid end settings and this game rocks!!! Best MP gameplay ever and is so addicting!!! You don't need a high-end gaming pc for the game but it won't work with machines that have under 2.0 Ghz CPU and a under 128 MB Graphics card.
Pros Amazing game play, incredible combat sim. Excellent spread of vehicles!
Cons Difficult at times to get into online servers. Filters do not work, still shows full servers.
Summary Great game, love to play it for hours on end. The only 2 downfalls is that when you play single player you cannot choose the map size (you can only play the 16 player size). And getting into online servers is difficult. The server filters do not really work. They show full servers and there aren't enough ranked servers to play on so that you can build your players rank. But still an amazing game. Well worth the money!
Pros Mid range comps can play as well, excellent teamwork emphasis
Cons Addictive, climbing ladder on rated servers a bit slow.
Summary You dont need a powerhouse comp to play it.
I had a chance to play on a low end (old) comp and it was fast, not laggy, only the view distance was compromized. Still...way good
Battlefield 1942 suffered much more on the same comp.
For comparison :
The old comp was..
Geforce 4 FX 5200
!!! i kid you not and the gameplay was excellent.
Pros graphics, map and model detail. Trauma should have stayed independent, you can tell this is their work
Cons Bulky, cumbersome, unfinished, glitchy, ranked servers, unbalanced weapons and vehicle damage
Summary As a long-time MOH, BF42 (DCX mod) player; I was really looking forward to this game. It has been a real let-down to be honest. The game seems to be a beta released for mass-consumption. The advent of “ranking” and playing on ranked servers mitigates and destroys the whole Clan structure that made multiplayer fun. Each clan had their own server on their own pipeline and there was a real community but this destroys that by forcing you to rent a server from a “trusted” EA partner in order to offer ranking which everyone wants due to the weapons unlock etc.
In my opinion; the game is messy and EA spent more time negotiating contracts with server rental companies over the last two years than working on a great game. They incorporated the ranking into their game to force you to rent servers if you have any hope of achieving traffic on your server. Joint Op’s is still a better game. Smoother, less bulky and cumbersome and less taxing on your system. Novalogic also didn’t prostitute their game to drive people to server rental companies they have a stake in. Shame on EA; they have ruined the spirit of the multiplayer clan community.
Pros Full of action, lots of eye candy, perfect fps game ever made.

I suggest running the strongest cpu, to push the most power over to your video card or cards.
Cons You can run bf2 on an old rig,BUT...
Summary You need a decent video card, i suggest using 7900 gt's instead of a dx10 card, as the game was made using 9x, there's the advantage. But if you can get a single gtx,you'll be way better off.
Current settings for my game play is
windows xp with service pack 2, i7 core extreme water cooled to 4.0, triple xfx 280's, EVGA X58, 3 ddr dominator memory chips.1000 watt corsair the hd model,
thermal take case,1 wd 36 raptor, and external 500 gig sata.
Game play for bf2 is unreal ;)
