If you've had your computer for more then a couple years, then most likely, it's not going to allow you to play this simulator. Don't get upset after you load the simulator and find your graphics card is too old! Four of my computer friends (experts) told me my graphics card would be just fine to play the simulator? Well they were wrong!! After loading the simulator into my computer, the first message I received was "you must have a GeoForce3 or a Radeon 8500 graphics card or better to play the simulator!!!
OK, I'll just go to town and get one! Very few stores, now will carry graphics cards!! I was able to find one. It's not Radeon 8500, but it was close and it's the only one the store had!! The computer store clerk, told me a Radeon 8500 would probably cost around $250 at most computer stores! So I installed my new graphics card and away I go. The flight simulator played OK, graphics were good. I didn't have the $250 to spend on a Radeon 8500!!
I've had all the Microsoft flight simulators and I'm not sold on this new one yet!!
If you have a great top of the line new computer with a super gaming graphics card, then this flight simulator will play great on your computer!!
If you have an older slower computer, like mine, GET A NEW COMPUTER WITH ALL THE SUPER GRAPHICS STUFF YOU CAN GET IN IT!!!!
FSPilotShop and a few other sites have a great selection of different aircraft, scenery, utilities, sounds, etc., to choose from. I would definitely suggest that if you do plan on adding on aircraft and anything else that you purchase “FSUIPC”. This is the best add-on for FSX as it adds in a lot of stability and collaboration between developers and FSX. It’s a little too complicated to explain, but do you’re research on FSUIPC. Also, I highly recommend a terrain/weather paid for add-on called “REX, Real Environment Extreme”. You’re flying experience will be vastly improved.
With all that said, you do need to have a powerful processor since FSX is a massive CPU hog. I run a i5-3570K overclocked to 4.3ghz, and if I could do more with it being stable I would. AMD users, I’m sorry, but I ran this on my friends FX-8350 and it just doesn't perform as well since this program is not multi-threaded, you need a very good quad-core processor with Intel to run this. Highly recommend!
Yesterday Flight Simulator issued a warning that my 2GB DDR 5 video card needed to be upgraded to one with increased shader technology. I just ordered a Gigabyte PCI 3.0 card with 4 GB of DDR 5 memory and, hopefully, upgraded shader technology. I'll provide an update soon with the result once I receive it.
By the way, the system requirements printed on the product box are insanely low. FSX 10, apparently, is a resource hog, and I would definitely go with a 64 bit version of Windows.
I installed the new video card, and, so far, I have not had any error messages come up. Today, I installed the Accelerator Pack, which is part of the Gold Edition, and, guess what... FSX Service Pack 2 was installed! I didn't need to go out to the internet to get it after all. It's also important to go into FSX setup, and then into the customization to set the game display resolution to the Windows display resolution. I didn't do that when I initially installed FSX, and some views appeared somewhat blurred.
So, I'm now raising my review to 5 stars. Now if I can only figure out how to install FlightSim Commander 9.2, which is an Aerostar.com product, which has the runway configurations of all of the airports.
