graphic card : ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GT 210 PCI-E Graphics Card - 512 MB
please could you reply by telling me if it will be slow,good or bad graphics etc
I'll try to be precise: No, it will not
- your CPU speed is way too slow. In FSX, you need a CPU that has a high number of GHz. It is commonly admitted that a modern CPU running at 3GHz is a minimum.
- given the speed, your CPU is surely an old single-core. FSX needs multi-core CPUs in order to build the terrain when you are flying. If your CPU has only one core, then your terrain will always be extremely blurry and the sim will be choppy.
- your graphic card is a low-end one, with very few onboard RAM, which means that it will struggle to display high resolution textures, leading to poor framerates
- 768 Mb of RAM is just enough to run Windows. These will be consummed as soon as you'll try to launch FSX. On my computer, FSX usually eats 1,5 Gb of RAM alone.
So the conclusion would be that buying FSX right now would be a waste of money. You should save your money for buying a more powerfull home computer (NOT a laptop) with modern hardware inside.
