Thanks, that was a quick reply. A follow up - I hope I am not too inquisitive. Speed: Higher than 1600(obviously?) faster?, Latency C6 better than 8?Thanks again.Abe

In FSX the difference between C8 or C6 ram is not noticeable. Nor the difference between 1600 and 2000 for example. (could be wrong about the last part. I'm sure Dazz will correct me :P)

4GB is probably the minimum. It is what I work with and I find it fine. 1333MHz is also the minimum. Windows 7 has great RAM management so you really get 3.5GB of RAM for FSX.
