Hi,Yes I upgraded from GP 4200TI to Radeon 9800 Pro. And yes the difference in performance is dramatic. The GF battles when it comes to running resolutions of 1280x1024x32 and higher with antiliasing enabled. The Radeon does this with a smile and often with unnoticeable frame rate hits. I run FS2004 with all sliders maxed, and framerates locked at 25fps which I get more than 95% of the time. However there are some airports that are FPS eaters. But I think its more my CPU running out of steam, which is by the way a 2.4Ghz Intell CPU. I have thus far only had fun and great experiences with my Radeon 9800 pro and would trade it for anything right now. Good luck in deciding what you want, but my money is on the 9800 pro.Cheers Gerrit
