Hi, I have a MSI 6600 GT 128 PCI-Express. You'll need the 66.93 drivers
from nVidia for this card, for earlier drivers do not support the 6600GT,
and it seems that the 66.93 drivers are yet in an early state of
development. (Look at http://www.suchanhannover.de under section
-FlightSim, Equipment- for more technical data ;-) )

The question is, which card do you want to upgrade? If you have an
nForce-4-Board, you may have more performance with the generic drivers
from the nForce driver set downloadable from the nVidia web site, for they
are optimised to work together.

Greetings

Although I cannot give you any sort of review, I can say that I have an MSI
Geforce 4 Ti4200 128DDR and have had no problems with it, performs well and
over clocks quite nicely. I have always like MSI and Nvidia products so I
would recommend them or any Nvidia based card.

Hi Chris

I have the same card (Ti4200/128) and would like to know the steps to
over-clock my card. If you can list the steps it would be great.

Don't forget that you can find the "cooledit" utility on the net. It opens
up the overclocking functions that are standard but hidden in the Nvidia
driver. This works for a number of fairly recent cards.

Thanks Doug. With Google being my friend I found a tutorial especially
for nvidea cards at -- can you believe it? --- Overclockers Australia.

Henk,

I have Gigabyte 6600GT in Nforce4 motherboard and Athlon 64-3200. It runs
FS9 with a lot of add on scenery great. I got approx 50 percent better frame
rates compared to an
Athlon-2400+ on Nforce 2 motherboard and ATI 9800 Pro video card.

Hope this helps

regards

Yes, I have the latest nvidea driver but after doing some research I
found that I can safely overclock the card a bit. Then I realize my
setup is working ok as it is. Sometimes the frame rate drops to 10 or
below with my sliders moved to the right but overall it's ok.


I think I'll leave it alone. :)  Thanks though.

PS, as I was researching I found this utility:

RivaTuner20RC153NY-[Guru3D.com].exe

which seems to tell people that it finds hidden overclocking settings.

But I surely don't understand it all.

As I promised, I would share my experiences with my new card with the group.
Well, fromI am still experimenting, but right now the FPS has doubled from
10-15 to 25-30. Not spectacular, BUT I also changed the graphical setting in
FS9 from medium to high or ultra high. So that means I do have an enormous
improvement of picture!

I am soooooooo happy now:-)))

I know, but video improvements are like potato chips, you keep needing
another one! I guarantee that within weeks you will start to worry that
someone else has got more out of FS9 than you might be...

We are all sick! sick! sick! I tell you sick!!
