Dont fall in the marketing tricks my friend.
Lets first see what FSX really is and then we discuss if we had,and if we need to change our systems...
MS people arent so fool...they want to sell and thats why i believe that FSX will provide compatibility with most of our systems...Of course they will push us to spend with another way such us ...for best graphics get this...for best perfomance get that and bla bla bla...something that happens with FS9 too...

Thats the thing,nobody knows yet Dont Know

I would hope that MS will post its minimum spec soon(just to give us a laugh) ROFL

As much as FSX sounds exciting, I dont think that, if needed, I'll be going out and spending hundreds of pounds upgrading or replacing my machine just to run it. As said, we dont know the minimum spec yet in order to run it, anyway, I've just read this. Smile

Do you think my PC will run it? My system specs are:
Intel Celaron 2.4ghz processer
nVidia Geforce FX 5600 256mb video card
768mb RAM
80gb hard drive

Its very hard to say. A lot of the websites are saying that you need 3.0 mhz processor to run it well. That could mean that it won't run very smoothly at all at anything less than 3.0, or it could mean that you may have to reduce some of the settings slightly. Its just too early to tell in my opinion Wink

It is too early to know what FSX will rally require. They have about 10 months to tweak the code. While MS isn't know for writing efficient code, they would be foolish to release a product that no one could run on their current computers.

Does anyone think it'll work on mine?:

1 gb RAM
100 gb hard drive(but now only about 30 left)

I think your processor is a bit too low, but as suggested above, theres no knowing whether or not it can be run but with lowered settings. But if you wanted to have high settings, I don't think your processor would be up to it. We'll just have to wait and see Wink

I agree with jolegg, you better cosider a more powerful processor at least.
I used to run fs9 on an AMD athlon 1,8 ghz processor and a much less demanding gfx card compared to yours... and I was struggling.

Having said that, it would be foolish to make definite decisions at this stage, only to find out later that the wrong choices were made.

If your current system runs fs9 well, don't upgrade anything yet, be patient and save your money instead. Wait until a couple of months after FSX has been released and only then do your necessary upgrades. We'll all have a much better idea of what is needed to run the new FS efficiently.

One more thing, on your present system, don't fill up your HDD to more then 75% because the Disk Defragmenter won't be able to do it's job properly. Hack

Yer that sux! Sad

At the moment my 80GB HDD has only 9.5GB free- so whenever I run disk defragmenter (which is very rarely Confused ) It says I need at least 15% free, do I want to continue anyway...and I click 'Yes'

Is that still safe to do, is it still helping my computer?

would it help if my processor is 2,6 ghz?
What about my graphics card? is that suitable?

Both of the machines mensionned on this page are to be ok imo.

Flight Simulators have been easy to hard to the hardware. What I beleave is what ever macheene will run the windows Vista in the minimum system requirements will be able to fly good in the FSX Wink

Look at Flight Simulator 9, I have a P3 550mhz & a GF2 pro 32meg and ran the game nicely, just can't pull details. Before the P3 there was a Celeron 500mhz. It improved alot and I dont think the 66mhz jump to 100mhz made a real difference. The architecture of the cpu really made the difference. At the time FS9 was optimized for 512k of L2 cache for the Pentium 4 Northwood. So my little p3 had the space for the total code .

Get the cpu with the most cache it will help alot, especially for 64bit applications. Cool
