    Any of the GF4 Ti series would prolly put you at that mark, and possibly a GF3 Ti500. The GF4MX is basically a top end GF2 according to what I've heard in the past .. but I could be wrong.

    According to the AmericasArmy site, the recomended video is a GeForce3 64mb, or equal........

    FX5200 is no where close to a GF3 64MB, at least as far as raw power is concerned.

    For the price of a 5200, you can get a GF4 4200, which is way better.

    If you want 60fps you'll need a pretty decent card. My Radeon 9700 Pro can just about stay at 60fps on radio tower, with no anti-aliasing. With 6x Anti-Aliasing I get more like 50fps. All settings are at maximum though.

    I think you'll want at least a Radeon 9500/9600.

    A more powerful processor would also help, AA is somewhat processor intensive.
