    Graphic Card Requirements

    Hi

    Just wondering what the min specs are required to run the software?
    Im looking at building a sim and want to get some cheap PCs for the displays but dont want to buy something and it not be able to run the software.
    Planning to have the Capt PFD, ND, DDRMI, Clock, ISIS, E/WD and SD on one machine, with 2 screens connected. Just wanted to know if the software requires more performance eg Processor, RAM or if it relies more on graphics?

    Thanks

    The instruments mainly need CPU. The graphic card only has to support opengl, so all recent car cards with minimum gaming specs should be fine.
    The CPU is really important though as the ND has to perform quite a lot of calculations.
