Cant people read anymore. If you look on your flight sim 2002 box it states that you only need like 64 ram, 500mhz processor or something along those lines. So why is it that people come in giving details about there pc which just happens to be lightyears ahead of the box wondering what kind of performance they will get. Of course you will get good performance if your specs are well over what you need. I think the most important thing you need to state is what kind of video card you have. 2ghz processor and 512 meg of ram is all good unless you have an extremly cruddy video card that just so happens, is not compatible with fs2002.
Sorry if i sound like I am having a go at people well maybe i am because, it seems they are only trying to rub there pc's specs into people who have lower systems.
