Hi

Im a newbie and I am useless with computers, however I have recently bought fsx game and my graphics are absolutely crap,my computer specs are fine, so I think however the current graphics card isnt great, and I was wondering would this graphics card do the trick, especially would it work on two monitors?

To be honest the new card is not much better than the one you have got, any chance of mentioning your budget?

In fact it is the same card, Nvidia have rebranded since the GT 120 was put in your PC.

G100 = 9400 GT
GT120 = 9500 GT
GT130 = 9600 GSO = 8800 GS

Now all I need to Know now is what power supply have you as some of the cards draw a bit more power. You will probably need to take the side of to find out how much wattage you have.

I'm running FSx using a Radeon 4890, and with everything set to Ultra High, it's perfectly smooth. You can pick them up on E-Bay for under £100.
