Looking for some help with gaming PC
You'll have to excuse me since I don't know a lot about computers. I am planning on buying a new computer in the near future and had some questions.

I will be buying it mostly for gaming, but also for internet use.

I am into the flight simulaters (microsoft FS2004) and some other war type games.

I'm looking into a core 2 duo with a nvidea 7600 graphics card.

Will this setup run FS2004 reasonably well?

Besides the graphics card, what is the next most important thing to get to aquire good performance for high load games like flight simulater?

Any other info you may have would be great, thanks!

Minimum 2 gigs of RAM. Good air circulation. Good PSU. And I'd look for a better GFX card than a 7600GT. Check out the 7900GS, or, if you can afford them, the X19050 or the 7950GT.

what is your budget? and where are you, so we can give you links to look at?

I am looking at trying to keep it under $1000 if I can.
