Two types of video cards.

Recommended Posts



I run FS2004 with two ATI HD3850 (PCIe) video cards. I have good frame rates (Av 27f/s) with three monitors.

One displaying the outside view is connected to one of the ATI's and two other monitors are connected to the other ATI for the overhead and the CDU.

I like to connect one more monitor but when I do the frame rates drop too low.


Is it possible and will I have an improvement on the framerates when I buy a better ATI video card to replace the first and leave one old HD3850 on the other PCIe slot?

I realy don't know if the old card will pull the new one's performance down or not.........


Thanks in advance,
