    Your setup looks great.

    The shots are exceptionally clear and crisp.

    Hi David!
    Really spectacular shots you have here! Your shots have always been so nice that it is quite difficult to see big changes but very crisp shots these are! :)

    Your shots are beautiful David, but as a warbird enthusiast and purist, I really don't care for the Spitfire/Me-109 pairing - looks cool for sure - but history is important for me and I think both aircraft have earned their own place in time. Nevertheless - some very nice captures Mate!:-wave

    WOW- David the shots are excellent. All look almost real. The graphics are outstanding- very crisp and clear. I wish my shots looked as good as yours. Very good old chap! That is a great new card-pesos well spent!

    Take care,

    Cliff

    Thanks guys ....... glad you like them. I can notice some improvements with this card over the older 8500LE (noticable are that wires appear better in shots where before they would often be jagged or a bit blocky). I seem to be staying at 19.8 fps more often now. I do notice that my trees seem to have a flicking shimmering quality now. I have mipmaps at 4 and also on the card slider at various settings and can't seem to shake that (I've since read about that issue online ...... would like to minimise that if possible).

    I might defrag my C drive (where my page file is ) since I think it's been a month since I did that and that would help with virtual memory pausing a bit for loading textures and stuff (don't know why virtual memory is used as much as it is and not more of the 256meg RAM on the card.

    Oh well , it's still a jump from the 8500 LE

    I thought this was a real world test plane made froma captured Spitfire. Maybe it's just a fictional 'what-if'. I'll have to google this (Kyle, you have apparently posted a pic of the real plane but it didn't show for me). Anyway, I can understand your dislike of this on a certain level since it diminishes the character of both classic planes. However, it is a nice job by aeroplane heaven.

    I'm just trying to occupy myself so I don't buy that Realair spit during a moment of weakened will-power ;-)
