Ive got a 2.2ghz athlon with 1gb of ram, 80 gb hard drive and an Ati 9800All in Wonder grafics card. I have also just baught the new flight simulator and my computer will not run it very well even with the newest drivers, just wondered if buying a new graphics card would help (preferably under £100) or if i would have to upgrade the cpu aswell to get any significant difference. Any help would be appreciated!!

The official system requirements listed on this page show that your system is high and above them. It sounds like either something running the background is making it run slowly (possibly some form of malware) or you need to update your graphics card drivers to the latest version from http://www.ati.com/
