It should run on your system but I would get 512mb more RAM so that FSX will run more efficiently and smoothly. You will need 1 GB of RAM anyway if you decide to upgrade to Windows Vista. You will also need a DVD drive.🙂

Ummm,how do you have windows vista????It's not out yet!!!

I very much doubt a 9200 will run it... it doesnt even support DX9.

1Gb min, and you dont have Vista 🙂

My thought is that one will have to upgrade to Vista to get the full benefits of fsx, as it contains directX 10. Or will directX 10 be available for xp? I don't know...

Here are some thoughts and speculations we shared the other day ➡ https://forum.flyawaysimulation.com/forum/topic/13303/vista-gamers-need-2gb-plus-of-memory/

Thanks Tailhook. I suppose I will go all the way and get Vista along with FSX (whichever comes out first), as I can't bear to play it at anything less than full potential. Its kind of bad timing though, as I would rather wait a few months on Vista for the bugs to be worked out.

Will it run on my laptop:-

Intel Celeron M Processor 370
40GB Hard Drive
512mb RAM
Microsoft Windows XP

128 MB Video RAM

I imagine it will run pretty decent, but without a lot of texture detail and draw distance. I know I ran FS 2004 on a much lesser laptop, but saw a big difference with a gig of ram and 256mb vram on my desktop.

If it's FSX you're inquiring about Mike, I think you'll be struggling with only 512RAM Idea

Ok, How would I upgrade my laptop to lets say 1Gb?

(Sorry, I am not too good with RAM and things like that)

There are RAM sticks avaliable for Lap-tops in the market.You must know the model of your Lap-top(obviously you know it)and search on their site or in a local computer store to advice you what you can use.In most of cases RAM sticks fOR Lap-tops are a little more expensive than the usual ones.

I had this GFX in past.Its a great but now its an old card.My personal opinion is that you have to upgrade it.
You are asking about what kind of GFX should you look for in the Harware Forum and i gave you some first advices.Of course we can discuss it more and lot of people has also useful infos to give you. 😉

This is the annoying part about the next flight sim release, a lot of people hunt round to buy it for the cheapest price they can and I don't blame them.
Then they have to spend a fortune on either upgrading their PC or even buying a new one, for those that buy new ones, how much has FS cost them? Evil or Very Mad
Some say I was planning on buying a new PC anyway, but we know that isn't true is it? 🙂

The other side of the coin is how much has been spent on FS9 addons to get get to a level that is easily beaten by the default FSX?

It should run quite well on that machine.
Defrag before you install.
