Hi,
The miminal requirements for Flight Simulator 2002 are
For windows XP -128 MB RAM
Processor- 300 HMz
Hard Drive- 750 MB


What are the requirements that would make FS2002 run with good frame rates and at a good speed?

To get good frame rates you need double the minimum requirements.

Hope this is a bit of a help.

Ok Britannia, My computer has-

Intell Celeron Processor (2.60GHz, 400MHz)
Windows XP Home Edition
512MB 266MHz DDR RAM
40GB (5400RPM)


Is that enough information, Do you think that could run Flight Simulator 2002?

Your computer will run flight simulator 2002. The problem is the RAM, and also your graphics card. You have 512 of 266 which is ok, I would suggest in an investment of another stick of RAM, if your computer can take another stick. The graphics card is the next main problem, if you are running an onboard graphics card then you wont get very good frames. There is absolutely no guarantee that any computer will run FS with good frames. The computer its self can run FS but whether you get good frames is another thing. It will also depend on how "dense" you have the scenery and also the aircraft themselves.

Hope this helps you a bit more,

Iain

Quick question....i've read a few places there isn't a big difference between FS2002 and FS2004....i've been using FS2000 for quite some time now but was thinking of upgrading....to a new version of FS..


right now, my i'm running a P-IV 2.4 GHz, 1-GIG DDR 2100 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 and NVIDIA GeForce MX 440-SE ..thus a total of three monitors....
i'm running a 7200 RPM Maxtor IDE drive....and a creative labs soundblaster card

would my computer be fast enough to run FS2002 to have good/smooth frame rates?

i like to have full density (i'm greedy)
