Just install the card and the new video drivers (the installation instructions with the card will also tell you how to install the drivers). Nothing needs to be done with FS2002. If you're not running XP, I'd also recommend reinstalling DX8.1 AFTER the video drivers are installed (can't reinstall DirectX with XP).Trip

Thanks a lot Trip, unfortuantely I am running XP, so I guess I just stay with current version, I believe it is 8.0. Gotta go, can't wait to see what this card can do for my scenery.

You're OK. It's no big deal not being able to reinstall DirectX. WinXP ships with 8.1 and it doesn't need the DX reload after a driver install as Win98(SE) often does.
