Hello,I run an old fx 5200 nvidia graphics card on my windows 7 just to watch all my dvd's on my home theatre system. I have installed flight sim x and now tells me to update my graphics or video card. On my old xp I ran the same grapfics card and F.S.X still works fine. Do you know perhaps what the problem is?
fx5200 is a bit of a crappy card for gaming. You'd be better off spending $40 on a new low end video card, 4300 series from AMD should do it. Here is a 4350 card for $10 after a rebate even http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., will be several times faster than your FX5200. Just make sure your case has the room for the card and you have a PCIe slot.
