Help!
Ross

I have the RealFlight G5.5 and I have been informed that my video card does not support 3D. Can I acquire the driver that does?

you can purchase and install the card yourself in most cases.

If it's a desktop, take the side off of the tower and look at the slots, see if it has a AGP, or PCI-Express slot and buy a video card for that type of slot with at least 1 GB of onboard memory. Then you'll be set to hunt bear.

Unplug the computer, throw it in the back of your car.......drive to the local best buy, look for the geek squad sign when inside. go to the counter and say this to the first geek that approaches you. "Dude......my real flight doesnt work with this piece of junk computer.......i think it needs a new graphics card. I want high performance 3d graphics Dude. Call me when youre finished, im going across the street to get some ice cream. Later.

^^^ I'll second that lol. Serious tell me/us the model no of your computer tower (if it's a desktop) Best to yank the side off and write down the Motherboard Model. And I'll find you the right graphics card for it. You can install it in less than five minutes. I've built many computers, so I know whats what.

You do not need that info. You need to only know two things..... What type of PCI slot you have, and your power supply rating.

I cant tell you how many times I seen people upgrade a card, and not the PSU. The tower then has issues later down the road, and they toss it to buy a whole new tower.
