Question
PC for RF 7.5

I just picked up an RF 7.5 and want to purchase a PC that will be dedicated to it and am looking at several. They all exceed all minimum system requirements except I am not sure if the video is good enough. The video specs say: "Graphics processing type: Integrated/ on-board graphics". Would this be good enough and if not, does "integrated" mean I cannot upgrade to a 3D card as required by RF 7.5?

Thanks!

An Integrated graphics adapter usually means it is built in to the motherboard. You may have an empty PCI or PCI Express slot. If that is the case, you could install another graphics adapter and disable the Integrated one.

One other question. For this application, would there be much difference in a monitor that is 1080i or 1080p?

The refurbished HP PC came in yesterday and RF-7.5 does run on it, but the screen does hesitate at times. For some reason, it seemed to get better as I put some time flying various models. The retailer said I would probably need to upgrade the video card. He said the RF-7.5 requirements are pretty small so he recommended a Radeon 5450 which would be optimum, and this computer has an open slot.
