Windows 7: Help please?

Help please?

Hi guys.

I was looking for a little advice please. I brought the Packard Bell iextreme M5722 around 18 months ago.

I have recently started using Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004. However I was wondering what I can do to upgrade so I have smoother play and more FPS. I am hoping to spend no more than about 300-400, What can I do to get the best possible experience?

Here are my system specs;

Packard Bell ixtreme M5722
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q8300 @2.50GHz 2.50GHz
64-Bit OS
Windows 7 Home Premium
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GT220 1GB DDR2, Direct X 11

Also, the upgrades I need how do I make sure they will go into my machine?? Cheers

Here are some pictures :

I strongly suggest you upgrade your video card, but the problem is that you have "bought" a computer making it difficult to upgrade.

You could upload pictures of the inside of your computer, to see what it looks like and space available. I'm not sure about the upgrading procedure with store bought games, never done it.

Also, the most important part about the upgrading is, well, the motherboard but also the chassis for space to plug in the hardware so that it fits. Maybe you could tell us what type of motherboard you have on there, to see what slots are available.
