I can say that, aside from the onboard video, your PC specifications smash through their minimum requirements.

The onboard video concerns me, as it may not be fast enough to produce real-time behavior, and you may experience choppiness or freezing in the game as it tries to update the graphics.

I might suggest, given that you have a G31/G33 onboard, a semi-inexpensive graphics card (a 5570 runs roughly $50 online right about now) may be a good upgrade which should allow you to run this game (and many others) with decent results.

I would ditto that. My experience with flight simulator is they will often run ok on integrated graphics, but a dedicated card-even a low end one, will make a world of difference.
