I use the MSI FX5900U NBox and can turn everything on with good results. If
you want 40 cars front and mirror even it will slow down a little. I find
that short tracks are much more demanding on video performance. With any
card out there now, you may have to use a couple of middle settings instead
of max. I have a 3g P4 btw with a gig of memory.

My 5200 Ultra runs this game very well. I have everything turned up with
medium mirror details, no solar effects, run 25 front and 10 behind, drawing
distance at 100%. Also using Ansio and AA. I race mostly online with 20 to
25 cars on the track at once. When I'm on the track by myself, I get between
70 and 100 FPS. With other cars on the track I get between 30 and 70 FPS.

i`d wait till the far side of xmas - nvidia (and i presume ATI) will have
new offerings for the world.

not sure how long after xmas though.

if you must buy now, then i`d go for one of the ATI's. the GF FX 5xxx series
are underpowered for their .
