For the 9700 pro use the very latest ATi Catalyst 4.10's. I have a 9700 pro and those give the best performance with IL2:FB/Aces. There the first drivers where I've actually seen a very noticable FPS improvement. Not sure about the Nvidia card but the latest detonator drivers may well be your best bet.

Actually I read a post from Oleg somewhere that the latest Nvidia drivers were not compatible with the new water effects. I believe the recommended version was 61.11.

I think his recommended catalyst drivers are the 3.7's. Not sure why but they should be at least the same as the latest windows certified drivers which I think are in the 4's now.

Here's the e-mail that Bearcat99 received and posted. It has the driver requirements down the page.
