My ATI 5870 + latest AMD drivers ( Catalysts 11.9 ) works like a charm so you shouldn't have any issues.

Mark is right. I have the same card as you and have Catalyst 11.9. It works incredibly. Great choice.

Hi Mark,You don't see the shader issues around clouds affecting frame-rate that I have read about here with your 5870? Or did you and this driver fixed them?Thanks- a new GPU is in the plan somewhere soon, and still deciding between ATI and NV.Bruce.

The biggest thing with ATI cards is the performance during Heavy cloud layers. The shaders arn't as good as Nvidia and my card is quite old now aswell. Was talking to a guy in hear while back and he even said the same as me. So i think if i go for the top end Nvidia maybe i will see better performance aswell and quality;) Regards Stevie

The frame rate is quite poor but this is a famous known FSX problem that uses 1 core only of the CPU and in a bad and ancient way.To be honest I didn't notice a shader effect or fps drop regarding clouds. I use REX so I dunno if it makes a difference or not.Anyway I am around 15-20 fps on the ground with third party airports and 30+ in the air
