    Default Radeon 9500 128 mb (pro) instead of Radeon 9000 64 mb vivo ?

    Hi,

    I have a radeon 9000 64mb vivo video card and I want better looking graphics, i wouldn't mind more FPS but that is not what I am looking for. I am especiallly looking for less jagged edges. What are your suggestions?

    p.s. money is an issue.


    Thanks in advance

    Robert

    The longer you can hold out the cheaper a quality graphics card will be. Wait until the new FS is out for a month and I bet you can get a ATI 9700 Pro for right around 200 bucks.

    That extra month will give you an idea of what kind of issues FS 2004 will present you with anyways.

    a better PCU would give you a biggest Performance increase, with an upgrade like that you wont even see 5fps increase, maybe 1 or 2, I would reccomend you to get a new cpu

    I went from a 9000pro to a 9500pro MASSIVE differance,but it is not just the card, you require the power to run it also which you have not mentioned.If you ask anything in future make sure you give the whole scene.

    Hi Gordon,

    you are right i forgot my specs

    Pentium 2,53 GigaHz
    512 mB RAM
    MoBo i don't know.

    You mentioned a massive difference, I hope you mean in graphics quality, as I don't really need more FPS but I need better looking graphics.

    Hi robert

    GO for it you will not be sorry,yes I do not mean FPS,the graphics are astounding and it made my 9000 look as if it had zero A.A settings on, jaggies galore, so so smooooth now with no blurries and scenery extending much further with clarity. Your spec looks the same as mine if you have XP of course.

    My settings which may help you
    dont forget to delete FSconfig file
    Direct 3D
    AA 4X
    A Filt 4X
    set at quality

    Open GL
    AA off
    A Filt off

    and to finish newest ATI drivers.
