StanI believe both systems will suffice where FSX is concerned. Is there any particular reason why you would choose XP x64 over Vista? With 4GB RAM and quad core processing FSX should run handsomely with Vista, especially 64bit Vista. Don't get me wrong here. I run FS9 and FSX in XP x64 quite well, but I also have Vista for the benefit of DX10.Scratch1964

sorry for the late reply......overtime has taken a toll on my free time.I have heard too many Vista horror stories as of late.I actually know no person who likes that OS yet. Several guys on the PMDG Md-11 tech team with me have reported painless, very stable Simming with XP 64. I just cant decide whether the ATI or Nvidia graphics is the way to goStan
