I got it for Christmas.
OS: Microsoft you'll get an great Vista looking out of a Windows in a Basic Home 32Bit.
Graphics-Video Card: Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family
Please give me an FPS results of FS95, FS98, FS2000, FS2002 and FS2004. About FSX will be low as I know.
And if this truth???
It would probably run FS2004 smoothly with low settings. Older sims would run better.
FSX will not run well unless you lower the resolution to something like 1024x768 or lower. This won't look very good on and LCD though as it won't be the native resolution.
Intel's link is not very useful. For most of the high end games they recommend running at 800x600, which will not look very good. As much as Intel wants people to think you can run modern games on their current integrated video cards, the fact is they are too weak for serious gaming (or simming).

Thank anyways, but I've found a site that tells me if my computer can run them, here:
That site just compares your computer specs to the minimum system requirements (i.e. whats shown on the box) for a given game, not how well it will actually run. Many, many systems will meet the minimum requirements for FSX (it lists a 1GHz CPU minimum on the box), but few will run it at anything beyond low settings.
