I've got a GeForce Ti 200 64MB
I've been wondering how to best use my card in FS. Any suggestions as to what is "processor dependent" and what is "video card dependent"? I have a 400MHz PII with the card named above. A lot of people tell me that my processor is the "bottleneck".
What things could I "slide to the right" or activate that my card would take advantage of without taxing my system?
Sorry if I got off topic, but while we're on the subject of video cards.

Mine is a GeForce 3 also 64mb overclocked with GeForce Tweaker!!! I have a AMD Athlon XP1600 (1425 mhz) with 512mb ram (motherboard is Asus AV7) All this components together are very fine for flying the beasts
in FS2k2 with all sliders set to max!!! Everything turns smooth behalf of the Paris area don't know why maybe somebody has any idea? In that area the FPS drops drastically!!! But for the rest I got almost perfect images!
Sorry no screenshot (I'm at work)!
Accidentally, how do you overclocked your GeForce?

FS2K2 is generally very CPU-dependent, but you can take advantage of your card in FS by increasing your display resolution. This works for almost all games and tends to make games less 'processor-reliant' and uses more of your video card.
Hope this helps!
