Here is an useful link to read more about PC specs that FSX requires, of course playing it smooth as baby's bottom! http://www.forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?showtopic=30796

Does it have a dedicated video card? If not, you'll want to get one. Integrated graphics cards are useless when it comes to FSX, and even FS9.

Spend about $200-$300 on a good video card (most likely nVidia) and you'll see a nice step up in performance.

But yes, as a base computer, that'd be fine.

As it comes it has an integrated video, so completely useless. Add either a Nvidia 8800 or 280 or an ATI 5770 to it, that would fit to a mid class CPU. If you really want a good FSX computer, take one with an Intel i7 CPU, these really rock, I would estimate an i7-860 or i7-920 to have qabout twice the frame rate of that system.
