Hey Simon,

Your CPU is fairly low which could do with upgrading. RAM is ok for the moment, but could be upgraded in the future. I don't know much about computers as you can probably tell, so I'm sure someone will come and inform you soon 😀

😀 Hello
You asked if your PC could be better? Well yes,a lot better(even if it was brand new top of the range and only one day old it would be out of date Evil or Very Mad )
Thats the trouble with PCs,they are not top of the hill for long Crying or Very sad

Intel 1.6 and 512 mbs of ram is enough for fs9 (just)
If fligh sim is your thing,then hold out for a while and see what specs are required for FSX(out in 2 months acorrding to some Dont Know )
If you must upgrade this PC the extra ram would not go amiss and if poss see if you can pick up a better processor(if your mobo allows)
You never mentioned your GFX card

Goto the control panel in windows

Click Start,Control Panel.
Now double click System
Under the General tab is the info we have ,so click the Hardware tab then Device Manager
Now look for Display adapters and click the little +
It should now give you what GFX card or chip you have

To find out what GFX you have do what RM says. Once it has finished processing your system click on display. In this section it tells you what graphics card you have.

Happy new year

You have a GFX chip Crying or Very sad not a card
Do you have a AGP slot? If so fill it with the best card you can afford,if not.........think new mobo/PC

AGP slots are inside the computer, not on the front panel. Get your PC (or motherboard) manual and see if it says you have one available. You might have to open the computer and see if you have slots that look like this...

The white ones in the picture are PCI slots, which are not as fast as the AGP slot (the brown one on the right). You would do well to get a real video card and not the onboard video with the shared (SLOOOW) video RAM.
