I've been thinking about upgrading to an X1600, but supposedly my X800 is faster! Doesn't make sense to me but thats what the benchmark tests show.  Smile

Snap! Got 1GB of Memory too.

I believe the X800 is the best ATI card you can get for AGP. Any later models are PCI-E only.



That'll teach you

NVIDIA 7300LE on a new Dell Dimension 9150. Terrible tearing problems with "tearing" in the scenery. Runways cut in half and displaced and so on. Latest drivers are no help. Full screen mode fixes missing bits on aircraft textures but the problems with "Views from above" are a real worry. Contacted NVIDIA but they said that they didn't make the cards just the chips. Anyone else have this problem? It isn't Dells fault and they have been incredibly helpful but NVIDIA has certainly been no help at all.

That's what I thought so too, until I saw a radeon X1600 in AGP. I was very close to buying it, but supposedly my X800 is better than the X1600 (save that the X800 has an older shader). I have no idea why ATI would do something like that. The only thing better than my X800 is an X1900 supposedly in benchmark tests.

Which is why I stick to ATI. Big grin  duck

I need someone to laugh at this, but I have a 32mb card. I lower all my settings on FS so I get decent framerates.

SO, could someone recommend a decent card THAT'S RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE that will improve my FS experience?

Thanks!

Im not sure what kind of video card you have now, but the Nvidia 5200 is a workhorse! I used a 5200 for 2 years before I got the Nvidia 6800 GS, and she preformed well! Normally with full ai traffic at DEN and scenery sliders set at halfway, I would get average 10-15 FPS (and thats with PAI which eats frames like crazy, thank god Ive switched to AIAardvark).

And best of all, the card is pretty cheap! ($50 USD)

I had a BFG 6800GT OC 256MB PCI-E card, which gave me numerous headaches.

I've since bought a ATI x550 card, which is cost about 1/4 of the 6800GT and is giving my spectacular performance for what it cost.

For those of you wanting to upgrade their cards, check this website out:

http://www.tomshardware.com/graphics/index.html

It has great reviews and comparisons and loads of info.

One interesting thing I learned there is that PCIe isn't much faster than AGP when comparing identical cards according to a test they made. PCIe only showed a 2% performance gain. Which is good news for those of us stuck with and AGP slot Big grin

Big recommendation for some of you guys: If you can allocate system memory to graphics via your BIOS, given that you have enough memory, do it. I tried it on my older desktop, and the graphics for a 4-year old Ti4200 are phenomenal...

How do you do that? I'm relatively inexperienced when it comes to tweaking my computer's performance, so I'm not sure I'm getting the most out of it.  Sad
