Question about ATI RADEON 8500 Graphic Card
I am currently running a Radeon 7500 card in my PC.
It has worked well with Flight Simulator X. I recently purchased the Expansion Pack and after installing it I get an error message that says
the graphics card must be upgraded to at least an 8500.
Before I just go out and buy it I would like to know if my current PC will be able to accommodate the new card.
Your sound advice and assistance will be sincerely appreciated.
PS see pic of my PC's system specs.
Kind regards - Rob Witchell
Sorry but cant see the picture u have posted as its so small.
Whatever the spec is there shouldnt be a problem upgrading to a 8500 or even higher card.
There are cards higher up in the range that are now relatively cheap and will far exceed the perfromance of the 8500 agp card.
A good and cheap upgrade would be something like a 9800xt
here are a couple of sites showing performance of cards
The main problem with a higher spec card will be wether your psu is capable of powering it. If you open the pc case up the psu should have details on the side of it. Please list what they are along with the make.
