I am trying to run the new Microsoft Flight Simulator X but the graphics keeps breaking up, so I am thinking of upgrading my ATI Radeon 9800pro AGP 128mb card and spend aroung £100. But which card should I buy?
Rest of system =
AMD 3500 processor
1 Gb memmory
250 GB hard drive 179 GB free
Windows XP Home

Would suggest you try some of the FSX forums, but I think you need a lot more computing power as well as the latest graphics card to run it at its best.

This click here
is the best graphics card available for an agp slot,
but its nearer £150 than £100, and make sure your power supply is up to the task.

7600GT click here or 7600GS click here however pay heed to what Mavisk mentioned. They use more power than your 9800pro did and if your power supply can't handle it you'll need to replace that as well.

I dont know if this helps but I have a 350Watt power supply, I have also been looking at a X1600 Pro 512mb and a BFG 7600gs 512mb card, any thoughts?

Power supply is too low for any of those cards you'll need to upgrade.
