How to tell if computer hardware will be sufficient for Flight Simulator X

Husband in pilot training, neither of us into computer gaming. We bought Flight Simulator X with the following requirements :

* Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista
* Processor: 1.0 Ghz
* RAM: Windows XP SP2 - 256MB, Windows Vista – 512MB
* Hard Drive: 14GB
* Video Card: 32MB DirectX 9 compatible
* Other: DX9 hardware compatibility and audio board with speakers and/or headphones

Our computer would not run the game because of the video card. Friend has gaming computer for sale and claims it will run FSX fine, but want to make sure before we purchase it on Friday.

His machine has :

2.93ghz desktop with Windows XP, 120gb(80+40) hard drive space, CD/DVDburner, 9 in 1 card reader, 768mb RAM, a modem, an ethernet port, a256mb Radeon 9250 graphics card.

Will this work?

As per Radeon, they are stating that:

The Radeon™ 9250 provides the perfect balance of advanced 3D graphics, an enhanced multimedia experience and multi-monitor support, at a great price point.
At-a-glance:

  • Best performing graphics card in this price segment.
  • Superior image quality for a variety of digital applications, such as viewing digital photos, streaming video and gaming.
  • Digital video support for single and multi-displays on a VGA monitor, flat panel and TV screen.
  • A four pixel shader pipeline architecture and up to 256MB of DDR memory for fast action graphics.
So, if they are true, then it should be work...........

Thanks

From the specs you have supplied, your friends computer should be able to run FS X just fine.

Activation code


Hey,
You have to buy the game to get the activation code. If you bought a CD, then the activation code will be on the back cover of the CD.
Thanks

I dont know how to fly in microsoft flight simulator x demo and there is no tutorial in the demo


Yes the full version includes a learning center and has some instructor missions that teach you how to fly gradually. It is well worth grabbing the full version. Look for Flight Simulator X Gold Edition. This includes the FSX program plus the Acceleration Expansion pack bundled together. This bundle has all the latest fixes and patches deployed by Microsoft incorporated into it as well.

For more detailed flight lessons, grab a flight simulator magazine subscription. One like Computer Pilot Magazine is dedicated to Flight Simulator X and other sims and regularly features detailed flight lessons etc.
