I'm pretty sure it will, I would like to make sure before I order G3 tonight? I have a Dell XPS 400. I know I have a good enough processor, Pentium D 2.80 GHz and I also have enough ram 1 GB. I'm not so sure about video card, I'm not exactly sure what kind it is, but its suppose to have 256MB. I'm not very computer savy, sorry. I have tried to find on the computer what it is exactly, but I can't find it. I sure about everything, but the video card. I just want to be sure. Thanks

What you have will work fine for any flight sim. To find out exactly what you have on your computer, just follow these instructions.

If you click on System on your computer, then click on the Hardwear tab, then click on Divice Manager, then click on Display Adapters. It will list what graphics card you have. I looked up your computer on Dell.com and it has these listed as your options.

256MB PCI Express™ x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) ATI Radeon X600 SE

256MB PCI Express™ x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) nVidia GeForce 6800

256MB Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

To find the exact stuff i just use star/run/dxdiag and that gives you all your specs. It shows your memory, cpu sounrd card gfx card. Anything and everything. And yes your system will work fine

Thanks for the replies. I got the sim today and have already been on it. Ran pretty good, until I changed flying fields and it got slow all of a sudden. I exited out of the program and opened it back up and no problems. Hope it doesn't happen again. I started training with the impala w/ training gear. I can keep from crashing but its hard to keep that heli in one spot.

new2rcheli Remember to go online & pick up the latest updates to at least version 410 (photofields) You will notice a reduction in frame rate between with the ordinary fields (they have to be rendered by the video card etc) the photofields run a lot faster. Make sure your drivers for your video card etc are fully up to date & you should not have any problems.

How would I make sure the drivers for my video card are up to date? Would I go online somewhere? Thanks for all the help.

I would imagine you could get them via the Dell website

Go to start....run....(type in the box)dxdiag.....then click display and it should say what type you are running. Or you can right click on the desktop and click properties then click the settings tab. Finally click advance and the next window will either be the settings for a Ati gfx card or an Nvidia gfx card.
