    I shall wait until I get back from my holidays and then replace my current comp for an updated one with the extra memory.
    Cheers

    I wouldn't bother with FSX to be honest. FS2004 and some add-ons running at good FPS works well for me.

    Try and get 1gb or 2gb of RAM, I think there quite cheap now but as it is, it should be fine. RAM will help abit more though.

    I am not too clued up on my computer, it was built for me by my cousin, all I can tell (if its any use) is:

    Pentium 4, 3.00 GHz with 512 MB RAM and 160 GB hard drives and an external 500 GB HD.
    Currently running Windows XP Professional (service pack 2).

    Does that help?

    OK. You don't need anything fancy. I think mine was about $40US. I'm using the Saitek AV8R and it's worked out for me. It's got throttle controls, 4 two way toggle switches (8 assignments), and a couple other buttons that I don't know what to call them. What are your computer specs? This will help you decide for FS2004 or FSX. And by rotate I mean twist.

    I'll drop him an email and see if it does. It works out at approx $32 not including P+P. If it does rotate, I shall purchase it.

    After looking at a few, this seemed to be the better of the bunch.

    Thanks

To use Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) X, you will need a fairly high performance computer. To use MSFS 2004, you can have a fairly low end computer. I have a computer capable of running both and do run both, but I don't run FSX as much because I get a lot better frame rates in MSFS 2004.

    It's not easy at first, it takes alot of getting used to but it's pretty good.

    Not necessarily. Joystick is easier to use, but you can just as well fly with the keyboard.
    So it is 'easier' to play with a joystick? Can anyone recommend a suitable joystick to play Flight Simulator on?
