Does the ATI RADEON XPREES 200 IGP VIdeo chipset work with Freelancer WITHOUT any problems that can't be fixed?

2 words: Demo version.
There is a reason for it's existance, y'know...

Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

umm i already have freelancer but i'm thinking about getting a better computer but i need to know if the graphics card that it comes with will run freelancer.

I ran/run Freelancer on (all ATIs):
9600 XT
9800 Pro
X850 XT

It runs fine everywhere, AGP or PCI-express (850XT).

I read on these forums and several times elsewhere that some people with NVidia 6600 (mainly GTs) experienced some problems. For others those cards run fine.

in principle you shouldn't have a problem, provided you haven't done anything out of the ordinary in the bios and you're using an up-to-date driver suite. best thing to do first is set all the graphic options in the ATi suite to application controlled or performance, thats all the anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering. You might well start off in a fairly low resolution for the game, 640x480 or 800x600 then work your way up from there. There are *some* games which this graphics chipset will only run stable in 640480 but so much depends on your own particular setup.

For those who have problems with Nvidia GT's simply adjust Performance/Quality settings they work fine. Like a lot of new card Freelancer can't ID them and defaults are set to low for the card
