    Video Card For FSX

    Hi Guys

    I fly using the FS2004 and Im happy with my video card's performance.
    But lately i have been using FSX, and the graphic is not as good and the picture skips.
    Im pretty sure its the video card, any ideas on which video card that will run FSX in its peak

    I've seen nice improvements on FSX from high end video cards. I believe the answer is to get the highest model you can afford (GTX 285 or HD5850 are good bang for the buck) . How many monitors are you running?

    Im only running one monitor. I was thinking of getting HIS 1 Gig 5750 ATI radeon, the two you have mentioned are outside my price range.
    What do u think of 1 gig GTS 250 Gigabyte.

    Ah ok, for 1 monitor I would go with an nvidia card. People seem to get better results with FSX + nvidia!
