My PC Can't even Play - MS Flight Simulator?

PC Specs:

 

CPU: Intel XEON E5-2680

Motherboard: X79 motherboard

RAM: 32GB Reg ECC

GPU: NVIDIA Quadro K620

 

I know it's not the best GPU in the world, but I have seen many Youtube videos showing games being played (even some at 1080p) with this NVIDIA K620. Here is just one example:

When I try to play Microsoft Flight Simulator, the program crashes and gives this error message:

 

"Your graphics device has encountered a problem and Microsoft flight simulator will exit. This may be due to graphics card overclocking, overheating, or due to a driver default."

Isn't this one of the easiest games to run?

What is likely to be causing this to happen?

Can this be fixed?

Where do you get this? MS Flight Sim is used for hardware benchmarking due to how taxing it is for modern hardware.

And I doubt that GPU is the only problem here, your CPU is also a server CPU, which notoriously isn't great for gaming. Could also be GPU drivers issue, I'm no server hardware enthusiast, but I know this much.

Not an expert, just bored at work. Please quote me or mention me if you would like me to see your reply. **may edit my posts a few times after posting**

like Duke said, unless you mean an older version of flight sim, the newest one is extremely demanding. i wouldn't expect to run it at all on your hardware, regardless of what others may have been able to cobble together.

I wouldn't even think to run Flight Sim on a Kepler-based GPU. Damn, 2GB and DDR3 at that? 

 

The CPU, ok, I can see it working for now but that GPU barely supports DX12. And it's nVidia's DX12-ish version, which means it's really a DX11 card that can run some parts of DX12, that's probably why it's crashing out. Flight Sim does not play well with old hardware, I've seen this a lot with the Fermi cards in my collection.

 

400s, 500s and some 700 series cards all had this flaw. As did their Quadro counterparts.

The New Machine: Intel 11700K / Strix Z590-A WIFI II / Patriot Viper Steel 4400MHz 2x8GB / Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC w/ Bykski WB / x4 1TB SSDs (x2 M.2, x2 2.5) / Corsair 5000D Airflow White / EVGA G6 1000W / Custom Loop CPU & GPU

 

The Monster: Athlon XP 2800+ @ 2.3GHz, Asus A7N8X, 2x1GB DDR400, ATi X850 XT AGP, WD 80GB Caviar (PATA), No-Name 700W PSU, Deepcool Tesseract

 

The Overclocker: Core2Extreme QX9650 @4.5GHz, EVGA 790i FTW Digital, 4x2GB HyperX DDR3 1800, Kingston 240GB SSD, Zotac 9800 GTX x2 SLI, Custom loop cooling

Considering the K620 is from 2014 based on a GTX 750 essentially... I'm not surprised it wouldn't run. And even if it did launch, I would be expecting single digit frame rates.

You don't have to be technical to extrapolate that if a K620 can only push out 25 frames in PUBG while looking like a game truly out of the late 2000s...

Then it ain't got a prayer to run something like this:
