I got started with flight simulators by accident as a builder of 3D buildings for regional airports in Google Earth. So most of my experience has been with Google Earth FS.
I recently took a stab at trying the free FSX version. Seems to run quite nicely although I have a lot to learn!
Question: I've seen people on Youtube with incredible resolution and really realistic videos of their flights. Is this standard with FSX.
I am interested in also flying aircraft like the C17. Does this come with FSX.
I play on a laptop 1.6 GHz processor, 3GB of ram 64 bit OS. I can tell from the MS website what the system requirements are, but what is the sweetest setup to really do well with flying and capturing videos of the flights.
