✔ Best Answer
You're going to need a power supply to go with the graphics upgrade. And you should really have at least 4GB RAM for gaming but apparently 2GB is max for your system. BTW, it's eMachines.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X is not all that demanding in the graphics department. I was playing it on Windows XP with 1Gb of RAM without any problem and a relatively weak 2007 vintage PCI video card..

But 2Gbs with Windows 8 is barley adequate and that is where your bottleneck is. I doubt if a more advanced video card is going to make a lot of difference on that machine.
