Thread: Need a video card recommendation for FS9 for an older computer

    Default Need a video card recommendation for FS9 for an older computer

    I know this kind of stuff gets asked a million times over but, I'm a lost ball in the tall weeds. So much of the video card info I find is for the latest and greatest, which I don't have.

    I need a video card to add on to my computer so I don't have to use the onboard nVidia MCP6 for FS9.
    Running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate with an AMD Athlon 64x2 dual core Processor 5000+ 2.6GHz with 6gb RAM. Raptor hard drives.
    Some PMDG payware, Opensky. Eventually want to improve my scenery with some payware mesh, etc. I may want to do dual monitors in the future. The computer is multi-use and not dedicated to gaming.

    I don't have a problem with having to go with a new old stock, used card or eBay, if necessary. I would just like to get the best card for the current setup, however, the bottom line is that I obviously don't want more card than the processor can handle. But, I simply don't know what that is.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A GTS450 would be fine for FS9 use.
