Guys what do you feel is the better graphics card out. I am kind of planning on upgrading my card and would like some good feeback positive and negative experiences not only with this game but in general.

Buy the 6800 Ultra or the 800XT.

He/She may be working class flight simmer/simmerette and upgrading from ATI~9200...

...I know the feeling well

If so, I am waiting next year to buy ATI~9800Pro, as ATI is positioning that as "mainstream" grafix card.

FB/FP is the only game I play, other than original 1993 Master of Orion 1, and I was playing FB/FP on my ATI~9200 at 1024x768 and 1152x864, but Oleg did some smoothing out of grafix and I am now getting 1280x960...Default CD driver out of the box this spring.

...I run MOO-1 on my old DOS 6.22 hard disk that I sometimes plug into my socket 754 Semperon 3100+ (actually, A64 2800+) and boot up with that. Yep, cpu designed for 64bit runs 16bit DOS. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I gotta be honest with ya, I was an nVidia diehard until just recently. I was originally having some trouble running PF, and thought it might be my video card (turned out to be my overclocked proc, but oh well), so I bought my first ATI card: a Gigabyte 9600XT. Great bang for the buck, runs smooth as silk, better TV out function (IMHO)- which worked great for showing my family some fine PF quick mission video before sitting down for turkey. Couldn't be happier.
