Right next to the download button for the demo, there is a button marked can my computer run this. Click that, fill out the questions it asks, and it will run a test on your system to see if it will work for you.

The question should be, can my computer run FSX reasonably well?? Don't base anything off of Microsoft's minimum requirements - if your rig only meets those, then you'll be running FSX at mimimum settings....


cheers

Just try the demo, thats the best option.

Those spec test things are never accurate, a waste of time usually I think.

Neithers the demo!! I was getting 40FPS in the demo along with other people and me being wise decided not to purchase it and everyone else is stuggling to get above 10FPs. Look everyones said this before, dont waste your money yet, wait till all the stuff comes out like DX10 and Vista to run it smoothly, at the minute you'll waste your cash for being impacient.

I heard that Microsoft was working on a performance upgrade for XP and Dx9. It's probably because many people would have to get new computers just for Vista. For example, if I were to put Vista on my computer, I wouldn't have sound or DVD capability according to the upgrade advisor. Check it out on the Vista web page.

If you're waiting on Vista to run FSX smoothly, you'll be waiting much longer than just to the release date.

You probably would, but the quality would be so bad, it wouldn't be worth it.

I'm running FSX with all sliders maxed out except traffic (I turned they leisure boats down, they're slightly annoying) and FPS set at 40. I usually get about 15 or 20 FPS, but in the canyons and african jungles I've maxed at 40.
