My Dad has a decent PC but he's not PC literate, he has stuff installed from programs that opt you in for things like Google Chrome and well when I go to work on his PC it's usually impossible to get it to do what I take for granted and it's frustrating for both of us.
That being said I installed a new vid card and also the latest Nvidia Drivers because it immediately had some issues between the new card which was a significant upgrade (GTX 550 Ti) and the MB chipset drivers (also nvidia) so okay, no problem installed from fresh and it was fine first time I fired up Rise of Flight but then I tweaked the graphic settings and now Track IR looks straight down into the seat and won't respond properly in game. I can look around manually but Tir won't even center, other than that the graphics look fine but TIr is borked, anyone got a clue? on a side note when you start Free Flight in FSX it immediatly puts up the nav compass screen and we couldn't figure out how to get out of it. I thought maybe his Saitek X-52 was throwing stray keys but that turned out to be fine. I may have to spend a day playing on it so I can get his settings straight but the Track Ir problem is a new one and everything was working before I installed the new card.

Gigabyte GA770 probably obsolete already
AMD Phenom II X4 3.1Ghz really an X3 unlocked and overclocked
ATI HD 5830 1Gb 256 bit it was cheap
4 x 1Gb GSkill 1333Mhz looks pretty on the MB
