    Hi all,

    I try to find out whats the best minimum graphic card to play Race wtcc. I'm not looking for the most expensive of course but a card to run the game smoothly.
    Please guys tell me what (AGP) card you have.

    I know, the Simbin site recommends a 256mb 3d card, but my granny Ti 4800 256mb doesn't understands the game (a directX problem).

    My system is ,as you can see ,not up-to-date.
    asus a7n8x amd 2200+ 1024mb nVidea 4800 :oops:

    Thanks in advance.
    superpats.

    dont buy the minimum, cards are not that expensive! nvidia 7000s should be good i think for this game. I myself use 7600GT twice in SLI

    I approve stiggy! Let's buy an Nvidia GeForce 7600Gt for 170 euros!
    Let's just verify that the rest of your system can be support it! :p

    Hi all,

    As said above, you should be able to get a good 7 series agp card for your system,especially now the geforce 8800 are out. This game is a bit hard on the graphics, i can play gtr2 maxed out but have to lower the graphics down a bit on this game. Still looks unreal tho...... :shock:

    On what quality can you play RACE with the Nvidia GeForce 7600Gt??
    Because i have the Ati Radeon X800GT (still +-200 euro) and i have to play RACE on Medium quality otherwise i get lags on my screen when i'm driving online... :?

    Maybe its the computer/system setup?

    i play all games at maximum graphic details (if possible i put it even higher, but for now thats not possible) but please note that i dont use one videocard but TWO! I use two 7600GT's in SLI modus. So its not 256MB but 2x256=512MB!

    Men, Ati is dead... 8)
    Let's buy for Nvidia but PureOwnange the graphic quality also depends of the rest of your pc! :wink:
    At the worst, let's chose the 8800GT :p (for only 630euros)

    I use a geforce 7950gx2, and if i play with max settings at 1680x1050 the fps is about 40-70 but can drop down to about 15 especially at somewhere like macau. But drop some settings down to medium, but still at 1680x1050 i get over 100-150, which is what i want playing driving games.. :D . Yet playing GTR2 i can max that game out at 1680x1050 with 35 cars and still get 100 fps which looks amazing.. :shock: . I don't know why RACE is so hard on the graphics when it looks just as good as GTR2... :roll:

    hmm I think you will be able to play, but maybe not in it's full glory... :) I also don't have a up to date graphic card, but I do can play it well...
