I have both cards, but not sure which one is better...

System specs:
Athlon XP 2500+
1GB DDR 333MHz
XP Pro SP2

Also.. I got another computer and would like to know if the hardware in it is enough for FB.

P3 1GHz
384MB SDRAM (the ones before the DDR's)
Video card, either the ATI 9600 128MB or FX5200 128MB

Thanks a lot guys..
The slowest computer I will give to my 7 y/o kid and hopefully he will like the game and have patience for it without becaoming traumatized by FM and ubernes of certain aircraft.. lol

The 9600 is better then fx5200!

One example:
Comanche 4 Demo :1280*1024*32 noAA/noAF
Pentium 4 Northwood 2.53 GHz i845PE 512 MB DDR-RAM

ATI 9600 : 39,5 FPS
Gforce FX 5200: 22.7 FPS
The 9600 gains even more advantage when it comes to AA or AF. http://www.3dcenter.org/artikel/r9500+9700+9800_vs_gffx...ench_comanche4_a.php (http://www.3dcenter.org/artikel/r9500+9700+9800_vs_gffx5200+5600+5800/zj_bench_comanche4_a.php)

On the first rig FB should run without problems. About the second rig: you can try it but I highly doubt that FB will run well on that machine.

9600 +1
FX5200 was a dog and a Ti4200 would kick its butt until it came up against something DX9 then it would lose but then the FX5200 would chug thru DX9 anyway so no real gains
9600 is more than capable DX9 Shader 2.0 card I had one and it served me well(I also had a 5200 for about 30 minutes to "upgrade" from my Ti4200 after seeing the 5200 in action I promptly returned it and purchased a 9600)

The only way to find out is to try out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. But I would recommend original IL2 for the 1GHZ PC. FB will most likely run but you will have to play it with minimum grafics. Also the 384MB RAM will cause stutters.
