    We need to come up with post of what graphic card, chips, or onboard graphics that doesn't work with win 7 & 8 and MSTS. I can't be much help because I have Vista and ATi inboard graphic. MSTS does work on my 7 year old Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop.

    I have 2 entries, having upgraded both Windows and my graphics card:

    COMPUTER MFG: ASUS
    DESK / LAP: Desk
    MODEL: Not sure but i3 3220 CPU at 3.3 GHz
    OPERATING SYS: Windows 8 64-bit/Windows 8.1 64-bit

    GRAPHIC CARD: nVidia GT 620
    GRAPHIC MEMORY: 2 GB DDR3
    ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH PERFORMANCE? Yes, very

    DO YOU KNOW OF ANY GRAPHICS CARD THAT WILL NOT RUN ON YOUR
    SYSTEM? No

    IF YES PLEASE LIST MFG & MODEL:

    And the second one:

    COMPUTER MFG: ASUS
    DESK / LAP: Desk
    MODEL: Not sure but i3 3220 CPU at 3.3 GHz
    OPERATING SYS: Windows 8.1 64-bit

    GRAPHIC CARD: nVidia GT 640

    It is my opinionated, biased opinion that MSTS runs faster under Windows 8.1, Flight Simulator X certainly does. Also, I have seen mention on flightsim.com that the newest nVidia drivers also help offloading the CPU.

    I changed to a more up to date system about 6 months ago. I use it to run both MSTS and Open Rails.

    COMPUTER MFG: Homebuilt
    DESK / LAP: Desk
    MODEL: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard with AMD FX4170 processor and 16 gb of system memory
    OPERATING SYS: Windows 7 Home 64-bit

    GRAPHIC CARD: Radeon HD6670
    GRAPHIC MEMORY: 2 GB DDR3
    ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH PERFORMANCE? Yes, very

    DO YOU KNOW OF ANY GRAPHICS CARD THAT WILL NOT RUN ON YOUR
    SYSTEM? No

    It's not the fastest machine around, but it does everything I need it to and it didn't cost a great deal.
    onen hag oll!

    Model : Intel i5-4760K with 8Gb memory on the motherboard
    OS; Win7 Pro 64bit
    Graphics: Intel HD4000 series onboard does not work with MSTS, but will run Open Rails
    ...............Nvidia by EVGA, GTX660Ti with 1gb of memory runs MSTS and Open Rails very well.

    DO YOU KNOW OF ANY GRAPHICS CARD THAT WILL NOT RUN ON YOUR
    SYSTEM? YES. Card worked fine with windows XP but after upgrade it no longer would. Crashes on Train sim and Lord of the rings on line. Both are very Graphic heavy. When using the new SLI Train sets and routes it goes black and shuts off the game. Same thing happens with Lord of the Rings Online. Yet, Warcraft works perfectly on the most highest settings. I think that will change when the new expansion comes out and it's even more graphic intense.

    IF YES PLEASE LIST MFG & MODEL: NVIDIA N430GT
