Hi!

after changing to a TFT-screen which has a resolution of 1280x1024 I need a new GC which can handle games in that resolution at 32bit. (my GF2 TI reaches it's limit there) I don't need FSAA. My CPU is Athlon 2400+.

suggestions?

thx!


P.S.: one of my favorite games is FS2004. So a criteria might be to have all options maxed out and reach ~25 FPS

Go Radeon 9700 non-pro at the very least.

If you can afford more, go with the Radeon 9800 or 9800 PRO.

Stay away from any Ati cards with "SE" in the title though, like 9800SE. These cards are handicapped with 1/2 of the memory bandwidth and pipelines of the non-SE versions.

------------------
Radeon 9500 (hardmodded to PRO, o/c to 322/322)
AMD AthlonXP 2400+ (o/c to 2600+ with 143 fsb)
3dMark03: 4055
