I have a GF4 4600 ti. It's pretty good but I do have a strong system.

P4 2.7ghz
1024 mb 1066mhz Rambius Ram
2 high performance 80gig hard drives running at RAID 0

I play FB at 1600X1200X32 because it adds a great deal of deepth to the environment and makes plane identify easier. In return I have to run with stencil buffer off as well as turn landscape detail down to high as well as landscape lighting down to high. I usualy get from 30-60fps 45 being average.

All this talk of newer cards and LOMAC coming out. I was wonder just how much a newer card would benefit me if at all? The only problem I might have is my mother board is a agp4x and not 8x http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Thank in advance for any imput.

I have almost the same system as you (except p4 2.8 instead) and upgraded from a Ti4600 to a 5900 ultra. I don't run my res that high, but use AA and AF at 4x each. This gives excellent performance and visuals at the same time. Also, I have my graphics settings at the highest level (including "perfect" ground detail) and am able to play online with fps in the forties consistently.
