The GTX660 is a great card. I'm running the ASUS GeForce GTX660.

Yes, it is! I got the EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked 2GB (link is to Amazon), impressive. And it fits in the tiny HP case <g>

Bill,

I'm using the 314.22 drivers. The sim is running so well, now that it has a card that can handle what the CPU is throwing at it, that I keep on upping the settings, like water effects, traffic etc. Below are a coupla images on performance, taken while the sim was running, and in the toughest scenery to render I have, the Aerosoft Manhattan X package. Before, with all the good tweaks from the guide and using the inspector I could get maybe 15FPS, max. Getting well over 30FPS now, minimum. Most simmers know that FPS doesn't mean much if you have the "stuttering" and such that make things annoying. No "stutters". And if I backed the traffic and water down a notch I'd be getting 45FPS, easy. Remarkable what a good CPU can do, matched with a good card, it's barely breakin' a sweat! :-)

EDIT: Forgot to mention, it's also driving 2 Dell 24" WFP 1920x1200 flat screens.
