At present I have a Gigabyte Nvidea 7600 GS graphics card , Pentium core to Due CPU 2.3 HZ with 4 G Ram and struggle to run latest version of Railworks Train Sim. Framerates drop down to sometimes as low as 14 which makes the game uninteresting. Considered the MSI Nvidea 9800GT card (R1800) . Would this be a sufficient upgrade or please make some suggestions.

Hey, looking at the simulator, it seems that you should be fine with a 9800GT. It's a good choice, although I'm not sure it will fix making the game "uninteresting" I think that is more due to the fact that it's a TRAIN simulator. lol ;)

The uninteresting part refers to the hickups I experience in the game. The Sim itself I think is great. I only want to pick up the framerates without changing the resolution on mt new SAMSUNG HD screen(23.6") Since I upgraded the screen I have struggled with the framerates.. Is the "MSI" product exceptable??Thanks
