Graphics card is whatever Dell put in when they built it - according to Control Panel an Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV if that makes any sense? Somewhere or other it said 64MB so could that be the problem? I'm not buying a new computer just to run Ship Sim and being a Dell I doubt you can upgrade the "card" as its probably welded onto the motherboard I think.
I have no idea what DirectX is but I will type it into Google
no I don't think so. The computer doesn't seem to have any problem running reasonable resolution video clips - stuff like the RIBnet Pwellyheli video from a couple of years back - but maybe this isn't a good indication.
I'm not a hardened gamer as you may be able to tell ... I used to be good at Doom about fifteen years ago but I guess a bit of water has passed under the bridge since then!
