    Hi All-

    I'm interested in downloading the free Google Earth Pro. I'm not sure if I meet the Graphics card requirement of: "DirectX9 and 3D capable with 256MB of VRAM ".

    My card (as seen in sig below) is a "ATI Radeon HD 4850 w/512MB".

    I cannot find a comparison between their recommended card and what I have & the relation to running Earth Pro? Is my card compatible?

    If my card is compatible should I uninstall my present Google Earth 7.1.2041 before downloading Pro?:rolleyes:

    Not sure about that card but if I were you I would just download and see what happens. Worst case it doesn't work.

    OP> I moved your thread over to the iMac forum to hopefully get some attention.
