Hi all,

I am looking at purchasing a FX5700 256Mb card is there any 1 else out there who is running one of these that could give me some more info on what it performs like in Pacific Fighters, e.g List of you config file and stuff like that.

Chuck, I have a FX 5600Ultra 256 card and all is fine running FB and PF on Excellent. A friend has the same card as I, and can run both set to Perfect, so you shouldn't have any problems with the 5700.

With the 3.03 patch, water looks very good, which I don't mind, but not like it would with a 6800 card. I couldn't afford the 6800, so that and a really good deal led me to the FX 5600Ultra.

You're running in perfect, but is the config option set at 2 (or 3) for water? I've got a 6800 that run at 3 for offline and 2 for online (makes a big difference). http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I had one for 1 day...brought it back and paid a little more for a 9800 pro, got alot nicer and smoother graphics and a DX9 card. In fact I liked my 9600 pro better then the 5700, but it kept crashing (was unstable revision 1.0 green pcb)

Maybe if its an ultra, but mine was 5700 256ddr ASUS, ultra is still DX8

Despite what anyone tells you don't expect to play in perfect mode with a 5700 or even a 5900XT like mine. This game is CPU limited more than fillrate limited and even with an Athlon64 3500 you will be getting framerates in the teens or twenties with any action near the water.

I' ve one. Mine is FX5700 256 Mb LE ( the cheapest of the series ).

With cockpit on and lots of action, my system runs very well, but with excellent settings, NOT perfect ones.

My system:

P4 3 Ghz.
RAM 512 Mb
FX 5700 LE 256 Mb

I have the FX5700 128 card which I understand runs faster than the 256 LE version. With an AMD2500 and only 512 meg ram I run in perfect mode with frames around 20-25. But when I get anywhere near a carrier frames drop drastically. If I know I'll be around carriers I adjust my settings.

5700 ultra, 256mb here, with Athlon XP 3200 and 512mb PC3200 ram.

All settings excellent, plus a few .cfg tweaks that I can't remember, Driver version and screen res 1024x768x32.

I get 40 to 60 fps which drops to 20 or 30 if there is a lot of planes/ships/AA around.

I'm happy with it for now.

I have the FX5700 256mb also and everything runs fine and looks great!
The main concern I would have is to have nothing short of at least a gig of RAM!!!!

Although I still get a touch of FPS lag when I'm close to AAA from carriers!

I run a 128mb FX5700LE 2004 GT or in other words is just a regular 5700 with a fancier name. Other specs are AMD XP2000+, 512mb of PC2700 and Win XP. Anyways I get 30-40 fps average in cockpit at straight excellent detail at 1024x768x32bit with no AA. I can run AA as well but it drops the FPS enough in other games that I normally leave it off. PF it doesn't affect much. I cannot run perfect settings for some unknown reason, I get great FPS on it but I get that ****ed black water bug. I'm sure I can fix it with some tinkering in the config files but I'm not that interested in the super water textures, excellent detail is perfectly fine.

FX 5700 256MB ultra over here!

To be honest, I run PF at maximum settings without a hitch. I have set EVERYTHING at maximum or perfect. Water is set at the highest setting, or 3. The only optional setting that I left at normal and untouched was the trees. With all this, i get very very fluid fps. Just by pure gameplay, I dont notice any sluggish areas or noticable by eyesight drop.

I have a Athlon 2400, 512 ram and 5700 non ultra.

Playing it on Perfect is quite suicidal.

At 1024*768 on excellent, its very sufficient.
The card is only about 10% faster than the 3 year old 4400 ti that i had before (at least before aces). With new fancy water ... its probably a bit more fast.

Good card for money, but don't expect miracles.
