Default Dream achieved: Photo-realistic simming

I got into WWII sims with Janes WWII Fighters in 1999. Since then I've been on a quest to visually experience what my late uncle did when he was a Tuskegee Airmen. Over the years I've built numerous rigs played all of the IL-2 sims. While Birds of Prey had potential, the FM's just didn't hold up to 1946. When COD came out I saw its potential from the level of detail being modeled in the pits. Well its taken 3 years of patches, fantastic Team Fusion mods, a quad core cpu, Win7 64bit, 6gb ram and a 2gb vid card and I was almost there. Bigger is better right? So a few years ago I retired my 19" high resolution monitor in favor of a 720 32" HDTV. While the bigger screen was great, no amount of tweaking made my screen look as good as some of the screenies I'd seen. This week I found a 32" 1080P LCD HDTV @ Wally world for $200 I hoped the added resolution would help. Boy did it ever! Now I fly around simply sight seeing. Smooth shadows casting about the detailed pit as I maneuver, glinting windows, sun glare, reflections, high contrast self shadowed fuselages and detailed terrain. Everything I see out the window of a commercial flight. The added detail at nearly maxed out settings thanks to my other hardware upgrades have made my dreams of flying WWII aircraft come true. Thanks COD and Team Fusion!
