I would stear clear of ATI. They stated (to one of the DEVs and PMDG no less) that they will no longer support FSX in anyway. Ive an no issues at all with Nvidia. I have the GTX460 atm and its really no trouble at all.

That's a rather odd pairing, are those GPUs the same price? They really shouldn't be, the Nvidia card is much slower (though not for FSX). Can you wait and get a better NV GPU, say at least a GTS 450?

Thanks a lot both of you guys for your advice and info.The initial card I had was the ATI Radeon one, but recently I was given a second hand computer with the nvidia, so that´s why i was wandering if i should replace the ATI Radeon with the nvidia. I tried it to be honest and the results were not bad at all.I know that neither of them is "state of the art" for today´s standards and I plan to buy soon a good one (an nVidia one) but i was just wondering what to do in the meanwhile.Thanks a lot both of youNek

Ah, I see, I assumed you were looking to purchase a card when in fact you already own both. The Nvidia card should be better for flight sim, though the ATi card would be better for just about anything else.
