I'm looking for suggestions for the best value in a graphics card to successfully run X-Plane. Since I'm using this just to practice instrument flying procedures in the 172, I don't care much about the image quality, I just want to achieve a decent frame rate.
I have followed the manual to reduce all the graphics settings to the minimal level of detail. The only way I can get it close to 20 fps is to reduce my resolution down to the minimum setting, and even then it won't maintain 20 fps.
The PC has an older i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM. Currently the video card is a GeForce GT 630 with 1GB of RAM.
