    Do you have an ati radeon 5650
  3. i have a 5850
  4. but that one is also compatibel as shown on sl site, it's only the 5650 i don't know. Do you know anyone who has 5650 card?
  5. Hd5650 is way better than the minimum required cards listed http://secondlife.com/support/system-requirements/
    It will play it but not on max detail. To do that you would need one of the power cards that are in recommended tab.
  6. now i have a nvidia geforce 8400M GT gpu, will it be worse or better?
  7. HD5650 is much better than 8400M
  8. Thank you, that is what i wanted to know
  9. Also, keep in mind that Second Life uses your CPU more than your GPU. Eventually this will change, but at the moment, that seems to be the case.

    I use an HD 5850 at the moment with pretty much maximum detail on a Q6600 but I still wish I could get better fps. My cpu cores are usually hit pretty hard:


    There is a new Second Life viewer that came out 3 days ago and it has some graphics improvements. You may want to d/l it:


    They have really been pushing the envelope lately in terms of new viewer releases. They are shooting for every 2 weeks or so. Should be an exciting year for SL.
