Chris,I believe it would indeed make a difference if you weren't running WinME. If ME is like the other Win9x variants, it won't be able to make much use of RAM beyond 256MB. However, if you upgrade to XP or 2000, the extra RAM will make a difference.

Hi Randall,Thank you for your reply. But, I understand WinME is best suited for games or simulations and XP & 2000 work best for office applications. I wanted to shift to XP longtime ago but i'm getting a pretty good FPS between 17-25 with 2X FSAA on and bewteen 20-40 FPS with FSAA off with WinME. At the moment my AGP is set at 128, I was just contemplating whether upgrading to 512 will make FLY'ing more smoother.Best regards.chris salviejorpllFLY2 patch 230
