Opinion on My Computer Part II

Ok well no I have changed my mind. I am now thinking about getting the DellDimension E510. This computer really grabed my attention. Everything inclueded with the price are things that I would have nneded to addon to a cheaper model. It comes with sound blaster, an excellent soundsystem, 1G of memory, 3.0 GHz P4 processor. But I have a question about the video card. It comes standard with a 256MB PCI Express ATI Radeon X600 SE Hypermemory Video card. Does anyone know if this is a good graphics card to run FS9 with? Thanks.

I would imagine there are slightly better cards out there but that should run it ok..

Had a quick look about and found a couple of links for you
Looks like it the PCIe equivalent to the AGP Radeon 9600/9800 which should run fs9 ok ➡

It came out to about $950. I don't know if that is too high. Mypilot, do you think this is a bad idea about buying it?

Well, from my experience with dells, I wouldn't do it. (I'm sure you've heard about them) It sounds like a good deal though. Make sure you do buy the extended warinty in case something does go wrong with it.

jared, my dad just bought a dell xps 400 for 980 with a 20% off coupon, i think maybe you should look at that if you can 😉
