  1. ok. Sold another copy. Awesome looking screenshots and nice stories sold me over.

(in Dutch: sorry dat ik je post gehijacked heb!) I'd like to know too about the textures. Maybe I just go ahead and buy the 3870X2 tonight and give the answer to your question myself. ;)

The margins are small however and I'm a little worried about Nvidia's drivers. Quite happy with ATI's driver policy and expecting them to become even better for the 3870x2. Als read about the troubles in FSX with 8800 cards. Choises, choises... . The more I read, the little I know!
  4. I understood that not all games use both cores on an 3870X2. Only newer games use both cores, older ones only use 1. Am I correct? And, biggest question, does FS2004 uses both cores on the card?Looking for an upgrade from 1950PRO to 3870X2 myself, mainly for FS2004, to give better performance for AA and AF @ 1600x1200. Happy with CPU performance. (E6600 @ 3.4 Gh)Lennart
  5. Hello all,At the moment I'm looking for a new storage system to replace my two old ata Maxtor 40 Gig's. Wanting the best performance in FS I'm concidering these two options: a new SATA Maxtor DiamandMax10 250Gig 16Mb cach drive or two smaller SATA drives in RAID1 configuration.First some specs.:An AMD Barton XP2800@3300 speed on an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe, 1Gig internal memory, Saphire ATI 9700pro.I'd really like to hear your opinion on these two options. What is the best and fastest solution of these two options and what HD's do you recommend for the RAID config?With regards,Lennart
