New card for a friend.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello.

My friend needs a graphics card for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. He's not a hardcore gamer and wants a cheap card for this particular game.

His system is:

2GB RAM.
Core 2 Duo (Don't know the frequency).
Win XP SP2.

His budget is $130.

Thanks!

I have no idea about his PSU. This is his monitor, so I guess it's 1080p.

A hd5770 is a good choice or if his psu can handle a gtx460 768mb then fetch him the nvidia gpu.

All right, it's either a 5770 or the 460. I'll let him decide which brand to go for. Thanks a lot, guys!
