The X1950Pro will run most modern games with high to max settings. 1GB RAM should be enough for FSX. You can always add more RAM later on.

miethan,
i notice you have the same ram as i do.
i changes my settings to 5-5-5-12, even though spd is 5-5-5-18 (which is also the default of my mobo).
which is better?

timblanchard: thanks, it's a new sig.

nagasama: I don't think it's gonna make any noticeable difference. Have you tried doing 4-4-4-15 or something like that?
