Wed Feb 25, 2004 7:49 am

I want to know if my computer will run FS2004, smooth enough for me to enjoy it. Here's the info: Requirements for
Microsoft Flight Simulator: A Century of Flight
Your PC configuration
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) XP/MP/4 1787MHz
Graphics Card: S3 ProSavage

What do I need to make it run fast? Hardware recomendations, and prices...Thanks very much.-Brett

You need a lot of money to make it run fast  Wink/being sarcastic. I think you'll have to specify the word 'fast', fast for one is slow to the other... A good load of memory (512mb and up), a good graphics card (read: NOT an S3!) and a processor speed of about 2gig will in general be enough.

Always keep in mind that a computer is as fast as the weakest link, so keep everything in balance, there's no point in buying a fast videocard if you have a relatively slow CPU.
