Hi guys,
Considering upgrading from my Gforce mx 420 to a 3D Blaster 5 card by Creative. Can anyone tell me if this card will make a reasonable difference on IL2 FB compared to my old card? Wili it be faster? Will I be able to get that special effect for the water? etc. They are both 64 meg.
Thankyou in advance.

You should try to go for a 128 mb one...you may find some at very good prices, and very competitive. Then you will notice truely a difference....

I`d like to but cash really is limited and I`ve seen this one in the local comp store. I`ve checked the site, spoken to the salesman, it sounds good, but I really would like an unbiased opinion from peeps I can trust*... You lot!

How much? And why 3D Blaster 5? Just curious.

It`s the only `good` 3D card in the retail shops where I am. It costs 70. I`ve been looking around for a Radeon 9100 (9700 would be better but too much) which I just can`t find locally. And I know, go on the net. But I don`t have a credit card (shock, horror). Yes not everyone in the world has, wants or trusts in these things. Unfortunately it means no internet buying.
Anyway, If I don`t get any recommendations I`ll assume it`s crap and wait for something which has had a good votes.

I was wondering where this was going. Nowhere it seems. Apparently pointless trying here.

hey mate, sorry couldn`t find this thread hehe... i think GF2 GTS or GF3 Ti 200 or even 64MB GF4 TI4200 should be in approx same price range give or take few. You are kinda stepping backwards instead of forward with Blaster5.
