Actually your computer is a piece of crap. Don't you know there is a 3.2 Ghz out AND a 256 MB video card. lol

Well, I guess your right... Pretty slow system. I would've gone with the 3 ghz but I was on a $$$ budget (if you know how that goes) I had the choice of a couple different graphics cards, just wondering how everyone likes the Geforce FX 5200 128 mb card? I haven't heard much about it. Is it a good card? Thanks all. Birddog Pilot

HI,If you don't want that system, I will be happy to take it off your hands to save you the space at home---AND pay shipping chargers. :-lolAnother old Birddog pilot here--got my AA wings in 1959 after finishing initial entry FW training at Rucker. Flew mostly choppers though from 1964 on--but did get about 50 hours in the Birddog (and it is STILL an L-19 to me, NOT an O-1 :-) ) in SE Asia. When did you go through??Don't know about the FX card. I am still running a PIII 933 with Geforce 2 GTS 64mb, 512 mb ram, Win98se and FS2002--runs just fine, and I am figuring FS2004 will also run well. Might have to upgrade the video card though, but we will see.Paul

Don't let anyone talk trash about your computer. You have a pretty good system. It will run pretty well. You may not be able to max out the sliders, but you should be close. Just make sure you are able to upgrade later if you want to. Have fun with you new toy....

Sorry, had a senior moment :-)I meant to say I got my wings in 1960. STARTED IE training in 1959. Anyway, at my age, a year that far back makes little difference. Can hardly remember it. :-lolPaul
