Will it run?

huntleth Guest

Im getting a laptop in january (second hand for free hence the bad spec).

1.4ghz processor
256mb DDR RAM
64mb Integrated Graphics Card - Especially worried about that.

I wanted to know if FS2004 will run on this at all. Thanks, huntleth

on minimal settings it may (just)

You should really have a gig of ram with a 2.00ghz processor or more and a good graphics card.

I have amd 3200+
1gig ram
7600gt

...and it still stutters a little at busy airports

Ok, so if i upgraded the ram to 512 (because its DDR) and overclocked the laptop abit, it might run okayish?

I ran FS on 368MB RAM for a time (I've since upgraded to 1Gb, the most my poor old motherboard can handle). My graphics card is still 64Mb, though I just got an upgrade I will install tomorrow.

It worked OK, the planes would fly and ATC seemed as sharp as it ever did - that is, not very Very Happy Graphics not great at all.

If you like browsing scenery, I'd say you need a higher spec. If you just want to fly the planes, you should be OK, but I'd make a RAM upgrade top priority. It's usually one of the cheapest upgrades too, so that's nice. Go for as much as you can.

I started running it on similar specs and it ran ok, except for bigger airports and addon scenery etc where framerates took a big hit!
