I was going to buy the xplane version of the Arrow. 
I see the min the min is

DirectX 12-capable graphics card from nVidia, AMD or Intel with at least 4GB VRAM (GeForce GTX 1070 or better or similar from AMD)

I have a Nvidea GeForce 750ti which only has 2gb memory and DX11, does this mean that it will not run, or does it mean that it will not be as good visually.

It will visually be the same, no changes.  Slightly less memory might mean the performance isn't as smooth as you'd hope but shouldn't be too much of an issue for you.

Ok thanks for quick reply, xplane runs well, so will turn something down if I get problems.
Why does it say DX 12 min ?

Xplane doesn't use DX API (11 or 12) it's OpenGL based graphics API.  For some reason LR use DX as a reference point for GPUs ... probably because not many GPU manufacturers make it obvious of the OpenGL version support.  So I'm guessing JF follow suit using DX as a reference also.

Cheers, Rob.
