well i did it built my first pc with no experience.. it really is as easy as they say..given i only ran into a few problems that i was able to fix in the bios. but this is what i got

amd athlon 64 3200 939 pin
2 gig of memory
350 watt master power psu
nvidia high perfomance graphics controller
chipset: nvidia geforce 6100 gpu + nforce 410 mcp
the mobo is a foxconn 6100k8ma it has a pci express x16 slot so i will upgrade the video card via that method i was unaware that is lacked an agp port my mistake for running out of compusa excited about the upcomming build. but all in all the system only cost me $456.78 i had some parts laying around from an old pc. and because of my lack of pc knowledge i bought a cd drive that i didnt need but i guess new is always better.

any idea what type of fps i should expect to get in fs2004 with this system im running windows 2000 it was the only os i could get my hands on. sorry for the long post

It's nice for that price, the p/s is quite low and XP can be had as an OEM version on line at www.tigerdirect.com or www.newegg.com .
They have excellent prices and help if you are going to ever build another.
Enjoy!

Shocked wow very surprised with performance i installed 2004 on the new system and figured i would set everything to max including autogen!! and would work my way down to get the optimal settings and low and behold i locked the fps at 20 and maxed everything out and the fps stay steady a 15fps with no stuttering at all. wow

I'm hardly the worlds greatest authority especially on airliners, I fly GA.
I'm quite sure you can install a VC in an aircraft if has to come with it but let someone else back that up.

p/s. I mean power supply, a brand name, Antec, Thermaltake, Enermax.
Check www.newegg.com and read the user reviews for some, if it's too cheap then it cheaply built.
