VIDEO CARD ADVICE

Next month, I'm going to change all my system. I have doubts about what video card I have to buy. I'm thinking getting an ATI 9800 PRO 256, but I'm not sure. Does this video card work fine with MBS? or the NVIDIAS are better for this sim?

For whats its worth I have the ATI 9800 PRO 128 card and all sliders are at their max. M/B Simulator looks and plays great. My vote would be the ATI :roll:

I have the Ati 9800 128 AIW Pro but the boat foam/waves, when moving shows as triangles occasionally, and I may need to restart the sim.

If using Blender for making 3D models with ATI card. Blender may run slower and slower but there is a fix on the Blender site.

Thank you for your opinions.

Unfortunately, nowadays it's very difficult to find an ATI 9800 series VGA. So, I've had to choose for an ATI 9600 PRO 256 Mb. I expect this VC works fine with MBS.
