Will an ATI Radeon HD 3870 suffice for FSX:SE?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I finally got my new computer and most things are working properly. I mainly bought it to play FSX smooth and with nice graphics.

However, by "most things are working", I mean that my graphics card, the GTX 1060, broke and it will probably need a few weeks until I get the RMA.

I am interimistically using an ATI Radeon HD 3870 with 512 MB of VRAM. My other specs, are as follows:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 1600  6x3.4GHz
  • 16 GB RAM @ 2133Ghz

Will the graphics card limit the game a lot or is it enough for smooth gameplay on good settings, as FSX is very CPU intensive.

Thank you all, I'm looking forward a lot to get into the skies again.


And maybe, as a small optional side question: Is it worth to put FSX on the SSD or will the HDD be fast enough to load all that beautiful scenery? Thanks!
