Hi Emma,That all depends on what resolution your are running. Any GPU question should be paired with display adaptor (GPU) resolution ;)

Hi Emma, a wise decision if you don't want to use a driver from November 2006, Nvidia's 'latest' winXP WHQL for the 7xxx series... ;-) For FSX, it's best to have the 512MB version if you want to use it at max texture sizes (1024x textures). Ingame, this is adjustable via the 'Global texture quality' slider. Have fun and kind regards Jaap

Hi Clayton, hope you're well. For your GPU Department, you're asking the wrong person. I'm a beamer guy now! ;-) I honestly wouldn't have a clue. Due to your res however, I'ld nevertheless say "probably the best you can get!" ;-) Kind regards Jaap

If you were an ATI user before then you should be happy with that card. I have basiclly the PCI version of it and am quite pleased with it's performance. It does a great job driving my monitor which was the reason I got the card.
