Good graphics card for fsx?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I want to know what graphics card I should use for FSX to get good frame rates. I have a very, very low budget, about $60.00, but if you recommend a graphics card that is a little bit more expensive, I will still consider it. Right now, I am using a lot of addons, and it keeps on saying that Intel Display Drivers have stopped responding and recovered. Then, my FSX freezes, so, I thought about getting a new GPU.


My PC Specs:

Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Pro 4

CPU: Intel i5-4590 3.3 GHz

Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600

Hard Drive: Toshiba 1TB 7200 RPM

Ram: Corsair DDR3 8 GB (2x4GB) 1333 MHz

PSU: Corsair CX600

Again, the budget is about $60. If you have recommendations that are a little bit more expensive, I will still consider it! Thank you so much!

With active cooling. (a fan that cools it built in.)



With your budget that is GT730 I think, or maybe a GT610.


MSI GeForce GT 730 2GB V2 - 2GB - PCI-E


ASUS GeForce GT610-1GD3-L - 1GB - PCI-E


I very much prefer that first choice.


Make sure it has the right connector for the monitor you have. I expect it will.

FSX, FS2004 are CPU dependent, not GPU dependent. 80% of the frame rates are rendered in the CPU not the GPU. So any GPU will suffice it won't help frames rates. If you want good frames rates you want the best CPU.
