Okay, so I got FC2 this morning, I've been playing it for about 6 hours now and I love it. But, there's one little issue that I found and I'm having a hard time trying to choose a side. My new GPU came in today. This card is a very big upgrade from what I'm using right now. I havn't put it in my computer yet because I need a new motherboard which comes in tomorrow. Once I install that new stuff I'm going to have to reformat. 1. Copy over my FC2 saved data and continue playing the game on my new video card OR 2. Don't copy over the FC2 data and get the full experience with my new card.
Take into consideration that my current card has me playing on low-medium settings at 800x600 (my normal resolution is 1280x1024)

    Posted by Loyen_ Why not rar down the save files, and get it backuped nice and easy, then reformat and decide yourself? you can always play the game again but you'll (if you want to) always have the chance to play from where you are now. No downsides.
    I know I can do that, I just don't know which one to do.

    That's not true. I got a brand new PC but kept my old hard drive and I didn't have to reformat. My old OS was still intact.

    Well, its somewhat true. But if you get the same brand mobo you are less likely to need a reformat. It all depends on how iffy your OS is. For example, when I first got Vista I moved from a dell mobo to an MSI one and had to reformat, but when I got XP and moved from one MSI to another MSI it was fine.

    I went from an HP motherboard to a Gigabyte Motherboard while using Vista.
