Do you have an AGP slot? If so and are a bit short of readies click here

This is only an example, you may be able to buy it cheaper.

FlightsimX needs a high spec machine - and that extends beyond the graphics card. If you crank up the settings then it will really slow down - so make sure your computer is up to it before you commit readies to an AGP card.

My computer is powered by an Athlon 3200 with 1gb of DDR RAM. I upgraded my graphics card to a 7800GS with 256mb on board. It still crawls if the FS settings are set any higher than medium-low. Frame rates can drop to a useless 5 or less very easily. As a comparison I also have FS2004 installed and this flies along at 40+fps with all the settings cranked up, Trilinear filtering, and Anti-aliasing.
