I'm sure there are other threads about FOV, but the search options are horrible.

Normal FOV is 55.

I just tried 90.

What do most people like?

90 was to fisheye, but still very playable.

I run 90, but I have a monitor at 1400x900. I am just curious what is the best for my monitor. Maybe someone knows haha.

65 = 90 FOV

You should be setting the number to 65 because in BF:BC2 the FOV is measured vertically instead of horizontally. So 90 FOV for other games is actually 65 for BF:BC2.

Here is the FOV calculator http://rjdown.co.uk/projects/bfbc2/fovcalculator.php

You put in your resolution, the FOV you want to have, and it will tell you what value to set your FOV at in the settings.ini file.

For example, to get a 90 FOV at 1440x900 you would need to set it to 65, but at 1920x1080 you would need to set it at 59. It varies with your resolution.

90 was terrible, I hate the fisheye and also made people much harder to see. I stuck to 80

That's weird. I play with 90 FoV on 1920x1080. I see so much ♥♥♥♥ it's pitiful. Rack them kills up in the heli, and it's hard to flank me when I'm in a tank :D

75 on 1680x1050 is the best

everything above on this reso is fisheye mode

80 is OK aswell, but bit fishy too :D

x1080 is wider than x1200 (16:9(wider) vs 16:10(taller))
