I am using this card on a new system with core i5 2500k and z68ap-d3 mobo with 8 gig of ram. Playing fs2004 on win xp but the graphics seems worse quality than my old system. Do i need win 7 to enable full features on this gpu?

No you need a far better graphics card. It really is a low end GPU and to be honest you have a great CPU in the i5 2500K with a Z68 motherboard but let down by the graphics card.

You need to upgrade to a 6850/70 at least.

Just thought it may have coped with older games like fs2004, cod 2. Half life 2 etc. Will have to save up for a better gpu then. Thanks for the advice

Should play those games if you turn the setting down.
