Re: Flight Simulator X Feedback Thread
I have been looking into getting a better GPU for FSX than the one I currently have (look at my sig for my current system). My budget is around $200 or so. Here are a few questions.
#1: Is Nvidia better than ATI for FSX?
#2: Is the card I currently have (4850 512Mb RAM) a bottleneck?
#3: What amount of GPU RAM is sufficient?
#4: Should I just wait a while for priced to come down on current cards?
I also play other games/sims. Crysis, CofD4, X-Plane, GRID...ect
Any suggested cards would be appreciated.
