I'm considering upgrading my video card and would like some suggestions from everybody. I currently have a 16meg TNT2 Nivida card. Which runs FS2k2 fairly well, but it takes some time to draw the landscape and planes when I switch to spotplane or Tower view. Also sometimes it runs choppy when I max out the graphics. My computer specs are, Athlon 800, 384megs, and a 70gig hard drive. Thanx in advance.

Picked up my new video card today and installed it. I went with a VisionTek from Best Buy with the Geforce 2 400mx with 64 megs. What a difference it made with FS2k2! It draws the landscape and plane instantly. Plus is has a S-Video and RCA video out. Thanx to everybody for the advice.

Your card runs quite well with the FS2K2.
I;m a computer seller as well as put in toghter computer's parts.
I would recommend you to upgrade your processor. the view transition issue you mention is tipically a slowness of the processor not of the video card.
