Hi again

I need help because i have found a decent hp pc click here and it comes with a Nvidia GF730 - 0 64MB dedicated graphics card

Is this A good graphics card if i want to play on a few games like
Ship Simulator 2008
Flight Simulator X
Sims 2
And so on.

I would really like your help.

In a word:- NO!

Flight Sim. X is a very demanding game. 64MB isn't enough VRAM for games like that. That's a nVidia GF7300, right? That's their last generation budget card, and it's a poor performer.

I would recommend a card with 256MB VRAM, 7600 GT minimum, for decent performance.

Armchair is spot on,but if you still think the pc is good value,you can always buy a graphics card to put in it.

You could do that. If the power supply is any good. It doesn't say what the PSU is. The whole Specification is remarkably sketchy and vague.

Not sure what it would do to your warranty, either. Fitting a different graphics card, I mean.
