I recently got into flight sims. I decided to get a Saitek x52 controller and flight sim x :D Its certainly fun. What other good flight sims work well with this controller?

Welcome to the FlightSim.com forums.
I can't say for sure, maybe somebody else can, but I think you'll find that the X-52 has been sufficiently popular that most likely essentially all the major sims support it.
The major civil sims are ...
The major military sims are ...
Ilyushin Sturmovik 1946
Combat Flight Simulator 3 (out of print?)
All of which I own for test purposes but none of which I'm really familiar with. There are also online massively multiplayer games like Aces High though I'm not familiar with it myself.

Thanks for the info! Il have to check out x plane. I recently ordered lock on and some of the battlefield series. Are there any good addons for FSX that add fight jets like f16's etc? Id love to fly one of those.
Great site btw.

There's an addon for FSX called "Acceleration", developed by Microsoft. One of the things in it is F-18 Hornet carrier operations. Not a combat sim but this part of Acceleration is very demanding. The F-18 cockpit gives you a rough idea of what it's like to fly one though the weapons systems are not modelled. (But wait till you get your hands on Lock On :))
There are other things in Acceleration, notably the Reno Air Races featuring a very well modeled P-51 Mustang. I think it's a terrific place to start on FSX.
