Freeworlds: Tides of War is a fan built Star Wars total conversion mod for Digital Anvil's Freelancer game that was released several years ago. When fans began to make mods for Freelancer, one of the many things people were keen on seeing was a Freelancer mod based on the Star Wars universe developed by George Lucas. Freeworlds and Tides of War were the answer to this outcry. The development team of both mods have now joined forces to create an epic new Star Wars TC, Freeworlds: Tides of War.

isn't Eyefinity better then nVidia Surround?

No. Neither is nVidia Surround superior to Eyefinity. Eyefinity is more flexible right now, however, the drivers for all AMD/ATI hardware are notoriously unstable and bug ridden, and quality control on the hardware is questionable at best. I personally use ASUS - made nVidia hardware. The extra pricetag is worth the stability, reliability, and quality I get. Not to mention the sheer firepower.

Its true,the catalyst drivers are a big let down for people who use ati cards

Yet the hd7970 has better performance for the money then some of nvidia's high end cards. Of course asus makes the best hardware, and it overclocks amazingly well so if I was too inpatient to wait for the next gen GPUs I would but a matrix or an asus 7970. Also AMD cards have more GDDR5 ram then Nvidia cards.

I really don't want to turn this into an nVidia vs Radeon debate, but that is simply not true. As a matter of fact, on average, nVidia cards of the same performance bracket have MORE onboard RAM, not less. They do, however, have more stream processors than nVidia cards. This is because they have a less efficient design architecture, and require a brute force approach. And while it used to be true that the 7970 was the best power-per-pricepoint card on the market, that is no longer the case, the GTX 670 outperforms it by a decent chunk for on average 40 USD less. The pendulum swings back and forth as each side release new tech, but AMD is losing this race. They can't compete anymore because they chose the route of underselling. They've lost some of their native manufacturing advantage, and they've got serious quality control issues these days. I used to use AMD processors exclusively, but I've switched over for quality and power.

Linus often makes videos where he compares cards of similar pricing and sort of shows what's the best card at each price point, and generally the AMD cards do quite well... His YouTube channel is Linustechtips hopefully you can find the comparison videos if you want to watch them.

ElfFriend: He's trying to tell you: "NO ATI IN MAH HOUSE!"; I do have to agree with him. I had three ATI cards, all of 'em were useless crap thanks to the drivers. I bought one nVidia (GT250) and voilá, everything worked... until my power supply decided to explode :D
The I actually got my hands on the first good ATI card with stable drivers - HD6770. But I tried to update once, to the newest drivers - I am not going to make that mistake again.

What are you talking about? My hd6870 works perfectly fine, the drivers are great and I don't have any problems at all. (Maybe I'm just EXTREMELY lucky with PC components and peripherals since everything I have just works and it works very well, even though based on reviews it shouldn't)

I currently have a ati card, will this effect how the mod runs? Like causing glitches or bugs?

It will run just fine. I've been running the same build as Sizer on a 5770, with no bugs, glitches, or any other problems.

All the graphics upgrades I have coded were tested on two 6950s (ie. my system).

Recently, I upgraded my rig, and decided to try FW:TOW with nVidia Surround. Works pretty well. I get 80 FPS stable @ 5760x1080 with all the bells and whistles on. So graphics enthusiasts, this is for you.
