Hello Jim,*A Little update: Look at Geof's "The Videocard makes the difference"*-NCI have a GF2 Pro 64MB card, and no real intets to replace it,other than perhaps with a friends disused ASUS GF3 card in afew months time or so.I have a 1.4GHz thunderbird on A7M266, which I will upgradesooner than GFX card, since most in MSFS is calculations.Just my two Eurocents worth.-Niels Christiansen

If you're loooking for extra FPS and stabilty in FS2k2, uprgade your MOBO, RAM, and CPU. A new video card will of course make things look 'nicer,', but really won't improve your FPS.For example. I uprading from an ATI RADEON 7200 64MB DDR VIVO card to a GeForce 4 128MB Ti4600 on my 'old' P4 1.3GHz rig. I didn't notice any FPS increase, but diffenitly saw an improvement in visual quality. A couple of months later, I uprading my whole system (new specs are in my sig.) I saw my FPS increase 60-80%. Also, if you're looking to upgrade, save up and wait until this fall. There lots of 'goodies' coming out before X-MAS.
