Advice on using CAD graphics cards for Games (ATI Mobility Fire GL T2)

    I may buy a new laptop, and this laptop has an ATI Mobility Fire GL T2
    graphics card built for CAD use. I would buy it mostly for work, but
    I'd like to play the occasional game as well. It has 128MB of video
    memory. Would such a card work *reasonably* well for a game like
    Microsoft Flight Simulator or other popular games like Unreal
    Tournament? Thanks.

    I read in PCW (UK) that this card was identical to a Radeon 9600, but the
    drivers were optimised for stability, and not performance. So I guess you
    could use it for games, at least without maxed details etc.

    Be interesting to see if the Omega drivers would work with this card.
