No, thats not possible, however, you can check out your graphics card in -> control panel -> system & security -> system -> windows experience index -> view and print detailed info.

well thanks for the info on where to locate my graphics card, turns out my computer is pretty advanced in the 4.5- 5.0s but in gaming graphic somehting its down to 3.4, i checked my card and i have some basic worthless stuff, i DONT HAVE NVIDIA.
Can i actually go to a store buy a nvidia video card and install it?? or thats not how it works?

Sorry but i really dont know anything about computers, ive been trying to figure this whole thing out by myself:P

Maybe the answer to my prayers is just buying a card, maybe thats why the drivers ive downloaded from nvidia webpage wont install, because i didnt have one to be upgraded in the first place. Does that make any sense?

Thanks a lot, sorry for asking so much:P

Its a forum, the point is to ask. If your motherboard supports the card, you can buy one. Id say a 40-60 dollar card is probably supported?

to see if you can install a graphics card open your computer and see if it has an available pci or pci-e card slot as that is what graphics cards go into. u can buy an nvidia card over the counter but its not as simple as just plugging it in you will need to reconfigure your bios for it to work so you would most probably be best seeking professional advice if you have not done this before.

Empire TW in Windows 7

So far Ive seen here that it works in some computers with windows 7 but not in all of them, that leads me to the conclusion that it doesnt depend on windows 7 but in your computer's specifications: RAM, Procesor (like intel i7 or intel core duo), etc...
I have windows 7 home premium and it does run it.
Post your computer specifications so people can tell you whether it will run it or not.

Ok.

AMD Athlon II 620 Quad-Core Processor
64-bit with 8GB SYS MEM.
1 TB Hard Drive
NVIDIA GeForce 9100.

That covers it.
I just got it yesterday, and I was having trouble with FSX as well.

Your graphics card isnt great. I dont think you will be able to play the game with intense graphics. Why do you have such a other wise great machine, but a graphics card?

Well, My parents were able to get it for me, at $499 and they decided to get it. I am grateful for this machine, and you did help.
I installed ETW, and I must say, the graphics are appalling.
Could recommend a Graphics card, to where....as you said I have Immense graphics?

Cheers.
