I run Windows 7 64-bit and am about to buy my first joystick.
I'm considering the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro (good beginner's stick, by all accounts) and the Saitek Cyborg X stick.
I've read numerous posts which conflict on whether these sticks will run in Windows 7.
As they both have USB connectivity, some state that W7 recognises them immediately, so no problem. Others report recognition problems. So I'm a bit confused!
I looked at the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center for the Saitek and it lists a whole string of Saitek hardware as compatible but not the Cyborg X.
The other slightly confusing thing is that, if they are USB sticks - which should be recognised - what is the purpose of the 64-bit drivers/software on both the Logitech and Saitek web sites?
If it helps, I'll be running (hopefully) Falcon 4.0 Allied Force, MS FS2004 and IL-2 Sturmovik 1946.
