Grahpics card advice please.

Recommended Posts

I've added the free UK2000 Gatwick to my FS9 & got smooth viewing at 24 FPS but I've added a lot more WoAI airlines & get 60 aircraft on the ground with sometimes 10 queuing to take off & 5 or so landing. It's great & a huge improvement on what I had! BUT with the added traffic my frame rates have dropped to around 10.I was wondering if this card would be a better one to get in this machine (a Dell Dimension 9150, P4 3.4GHz, 2GB Ram, Gforce 7900 GS. 20" Dell widescreen) : XFX Nvidia 9600GT 680M 512MB DDR3 Dual Dvi, PCI Express graphics Card XXX edition - PV-T94P-YDD4 - I don't want to reduce traffic density !Thank you.

AI is only a little bit graphics card but a whole lot CPU speed dependent in FS9. I'd be surprised if such a graphics card upgradee would make any noticable difference in this instance. Gary

It's not going to make any difference.. you need a better CPU. A low end Dual core 2.8ghz will still be much faster then what you have and they are going very cheap. but that means new MB, Ram, SATA drives and a PCI-E card. Rob

Thank you. I've been experimenting & increased frame rate to unlimited & now get around 20 at big airports so I'll leave things as they are!
