Hey guys! My father is a HUGE flight sim fan and I bought him the latest flight sim last year for his birthday! but he coudl not play it on his old rig!! finaly..after a year of patience! he finaly bought his new rig piece by piece! I have to say..his rig is looking pretty! he bought a seethrough case which looks decent enough. He has been buying bit before Xmas and has it placed on his table in the living room! he loves to look at it when he gets up He is just waiting now on my brothers old CPU " E4300 1.8Ghz " He never came to me for advice on hardware! he really should have...he bought an 8500GT 256mb :shadedshu Will this GFX card be able to run the latest flight sim game? I fear for his life! this rig is only for flight sim! I fear it will lag! From what I can remmember..his rig contains: CPU: Intel core 2 duo E4300 1.8Ghz MOBO: no idea...but it was 28 euro..and it was on display...no idea why he bought it... RAM 2x1gig Crucial Tracer BallistiX PC5300 DDR2 PSU: ive no idea..but its 400WATT GFX: Point of view GeForce 8500GT 256mb DDR2 Its more of a budget build..but he said he will be buying a more expensive GFX card in the next few months! so....will this kind of rig be capable of running his long awaited game?
