Compliments of the season to all...
I intend to purchase a Radeon 9800XP in the very near future.
However, I was told by a friend that the Gigabyte version of this card will not accept standard catalyst drivers, and that for FS2004 I will need to purchase a "made by ATI" card and not a "powered by ATI"
First, is this comment of my friend's true ?
Second, does the card maufacturer actually matter provided the card uses the 9800XP chip? Are there different qualities between the brands?
Third, which brand of RADEON 9800XT-based video card do YOU use and are you happy with it or would you rather have bought a different brand ?
Any comment would be most appreciated.
