I am getting a bit nerved with my Radeon 9600 because of minor linux glitches (mainly now with x-plane). I was thinking about putting tops 100 EUR on something NVIDIA based - I was thinking about 6600 - any recommendations?

Will this allow all graphical "features" in IL-2 or is something missing? What else could be worth considering - NVIDIA and 100 EUR or less. (Perhaps also recommendations for brand - initially I'd just go for MSI or Club3D)

EDIT 6600 seems to be hard to get ... 7600?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

6600 should be just fine. But "for a few dollars more" you can get the 7600GS wich I have bought recently (a gift to myself for a 14% raise that my boss promised me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif )

I can now fully open all the options of PF, with all the pretty water without slideshows even in the 'heavier' missions/environments. This will require a little tweaking with the drivers tough. You can find threads about it in the "community help" forum. Mind you, Oblivion still needs its graphic options turned down a little so, it is not a top notch card for a budget price. I had a 9800XT before that but i felt that it couldn't fully cope with Il-2 PF and other games I play.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

BTW, I assume you know wether your PC has a PCI-e or an AGP slot? AND compare prices between the diffrent manufacturers for the same card. This will save you up to tens of euros.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Thx, I found a nice 6600 from Club3D. I have an AGP and I think my computer is coming towards the end of its lifetime - I won't use this over for SoW, for sure and I don't actually need any further improvements for IL-2 (not going to buy '46 and all that and perfectly happy with the quality I get out of radeon 9600 already) - the reason is in linux and other stuff I want to do and I just want to have comparable or slightly better Nvidia based card than the 9600 I have.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
