I was looking at simulators and realized that to make this happen, my computer is going to need an upgrade. What video cards work best with these two sims? Any other new simulators I could consider that need less comp power? And are these as useful for teaching the basics and practicing?

For G3,
OMHO,
ATI 9xxx or so is a minimum, I'm using a Nvidia 6600GT.
Remember that even if you get a good video card, an inept system may still not perform well.

Shoot for a P4 @ 2.5 ghz or more, (or AMD equilivent) NO Celerons, and at least 512M DDR Ram. Also your MB ahould support 8X APG or PCI-E to get the best performance.

nVidia 6600GT and up. Anything less and you won't be terribly excited about what you're looking at on the screen.

I'm running G3 on two systems:

1) 3mhz AMD 64, X800XL vid card. 1gig RAM. Desktop.

2) 1.8 Pentium, 512RAM, ATI Mobility 7500 (IBM Laptop)

G3 max settings really shines on the #1 desktop computer.


G3 settings 1024x78/16bit/Particles,Clouds,Textures OFF.

Those who say G3 NEEDS to have a powerhouse computer to run, they're way off.

I'm running on my work laptop every lunch hour practicing online and it's great. I just have some of the options turned off. No biggie.
Other than that, I can use it both systems.

The new update is coming out, and the beta update just came out! Now we can start to import user created planes/heli's !!!

... But honey it was only $$$
