Man, This game has average optimization so medium/high settings at 1280x1024 no aa should be fine with your rig and fps i guess 40+. I do not know how mods will affect graphic settings.

This game is very poorly optimized. I suggest that you all go in the Low/Medium/High range instead of maxing it.

Did you try to check your specs to see if fsx suites in low, medium, high or ultra settings?

I did, my specs SHOULD have maxed it out, even on my budget PC (GTX 550 Ti, Athlon II X3 450). It just runs sloppily, below about 30FPS.

My graphics card is 82% above the recommended requirements and your GPU is 600% better than mine so yeah your CPU also exceeds the system requirements. So yes you can run it.

Probably medium or high but with a very playable it might lag on high but not 100% sure the palit GT630 2gb should run it. You do know that card was discontinued though? And buying second hand essentially means no warranty, think carefully.
