HelloI believe i am right in saying that if its FS9 you are talking about then more ram will not make any difference.(you have the maximum anyway) I can't speak for FSX or indeed Flight (expect that in my case Flight will need NEW everything) oh dear!Andy

In fact the more RAM you have the better FS9 will run.However, 32 bit versions of Windows will only recognise and use about 3Gb of RAM so adding any more than this will have no effect.David

I always thought windows XP will only utilize 2 GB of ram...anywise...My comp with 6 GB of ram, same vid card you're running and windows 7-64 bit still lags a tad with FS9 (10's-20's Fps with moderate settings). I should actually get FSX someday and see how it behaves or utilizes my resources for better or worse.

It won't be good if FS9 chokes up the system!

I don't know the specific CPU you are using so very hard to tell,that video card is only kind of medium-user though,so I believe it couldn't keep along with some addons such as PSS 777.Upgrading first the CPU,then the vga later should improve your FPS. 3GB ram should run fine with FS,no need to run 4GB RAM in window 32bit. I've just add from 3GB to 4GB,doesn't make any difference :(
