I've dloaded the latest drivers from the nvidia website, but still no difference! I don't get it!PLZZZZZ help me out anyone! I need advice, any advice :-shyhttp://www.monarch.net/users/Icey/gesig3.jpghttp://www.libertys.com/dra/flag_is.gif http://www.canadahomesite.com/images/canaga-flag.gif

The MX chipset starting with the GF 3 series does not support reflections. And there is nothing you can do about it.The original GF and GF MX versions did however.I have just recently upgraded from a GF 2 400 MX to a GF 4 4600 TI. The difference in terms of FPS is almost non-existent, but the image quality is much better. I did chose the 4600 TI since I run some other apps and games that need a high-end graphic card.A more economical solution would be the GF 4 4200 TI if your main focus is MSFS2002 then that card is more than adequate.Hope that helps
