G3 or XTR with the following System
I am in the market for a sim, I have flown both the G3 and XTR on friends computers and I am wondering if either will work well with the following computer set-up. I know both have there pros and cons but which will be easier on my system with better performance.
Dell Dimension 4300 with Windows XP Pro Service pack 2
1.6ghz P4
384 mb ramm
video card is still up in the air I was thinking ATI 9600 or 9800 with 128/256mb (many available on e-bay for decent prices) or any other suggestions will work.

Thanks
Nick

I know G3 will run well on that, you can download the demo of XTR and see how it works on your system.

The XTR demo only allows you to replay a video to see if you system can handel the graphocs.

Hoverdown3k,
thanks for the insight, I think I am going to go with the 9800 card its only $20 more on average on ebay and should give me better performance.

Make sure you have the right socket on your tower that will accept the video card. If it's new, it should be ok, but the newer cards need a newer socket......hope that makes senseHoney, I just need this one more thing and then I'm set..

I was worried about that but I do have a 4x agp slot. Should work with a 4x/8x card correct?
