Gaming is not just for teenage boys! Anyone can get into gaming. Really! Sure there are a few computer terms you may not know yet. This shouldn't stop you from trying out simulation games.
Get a ComputerChances are good if you're reading this you have a computer. Think about replacing a computer older than 3 years. Anything older and you will have to check the game's system requirements closely. Many games do not need the latest and greatest hardware. The more fancier the graphics and gameplay generally means higher requirements.
Meeting System RequirementsSystem requirements are found on game boxes. The label tells you all you need to know about running the game inside. You should focus on making sure your computer meets or exceeds the processor, RAM, hard drive space available, and video card requirements. Windows users can click on Start, then Run, and type in dxdiag for detailed information on their computers specs.
