Video card upgrade

Hello,
I have a NVIDIA GForce MX4000 now and am trying to run flight sim X by microsoft.
This card does not have a shader or one intergraded in it that will allow the program to execute its graphic.
What card should I upgrade to?

  1. Can you post your motherboard and power supply, but it is very doubtful that we can find a graphics card that will run FSX well on a system that old.

    My mother board is an AMD Athlon TM XP3000
    SCSI RIAD controller

    I am aware of the limits to this system due to its age. I have added 2 GB of ram and can run the simulator X but not the 3rd disk that requires a shader in the graphics card.
    I don't expect it to run like an I core 7,,,,,,,just get by for now.

    Thanks for responding
  3. Can you give us the exact make and model of your Motherboard?
