    Rear projection setup...advise needed

    I currently have 2 monitors on the inside of my cockpit displaying the main displays and a clearco projector, projecting onto a screen for my outside view, which is about 40",these are connected by a TH2g.
    The problem I have is that the inside monitor displays are excellent however the outside view is quite pixelated, for instance when I bank the aircaft the horizon looks like a saw blade not a flat line.
    Some of this is due to the screen, however I am thinking that this is down to my Radeon 128MB AGP graphics card? It can do the inside small monitors fine,but can't handle the large screen

    I would like any advise going to resolve this matter, I don't want to buy a new graphics card if thats not the problem...

    Please any advise is welcome

    A less than $100 512Mb Video card will be a wise investment. Your TH2Go will preform better an your visual experience will improve immensely.

    Thanks for the help.....

    Rodney,
    Thanks for the confirmation.... I thought that the small 128MB card wasn't up to the job... but you have confirmed it.

    Will a 512MB card give me more pixels or will it work faster, Do you know the answer?

    But thanks Again....it's appreciated

    Smile Can anyone recomend this card?

    I am now looking to improve the 128MB AGP graphics card for the reasons I posted earlier.

    I have looked at this card ATi Radeon X1650 Pro / 512MB / AGP 8x / Graphics Card

    As I am on a budget it looked quite a good card for around 40.

    Has anyone any comments on this card or can recommend a better card for around the same budget?

    Go over to Tom's Hardware http://www.tomshardware.com and look for the review on that card. Being on a budget is tough enough. They normally don't use any flight simulations for reviews but you can get a good idea of what it will do. They did use FS in a review once though.
