That set will run Flight Simulator 2002 adequately but you should really get Flight Simulator 2004, you can find it for $20 and it's better. Many add on programs require at least FS 2004.

What would be best is the ever-popular FSX! The computer I use for FSX is a Gateway GT5228 with onboard NVidia graphics card (I am trying to get the NVidea Ge-Force 7200 to work, it just won`t work right now) with Dual Core proccesor, a Samsung 19" Widescreen monitor and keyboard and speakers and a mouse of course, and I have a Logitech Attack 3 joystick, and I bought it January 4 of this year (2007) and FSX is working very smoothly with full settings. So see if you can find those things, I got them from Circuit City, and I also noticed that it`s on http://www.gateway.com/ That site contains just the computer itself with the speakers and all that that comes with a computer; get all the stuff except possibly not the joystick at http://www.circuitcity.com/ccd/home.do and I know you can get the joystick at Best Buy stores, or maybe online at http://www.bestbuy.com/ I`m sure you`d find what you need for FSX if you want to get it 😉

With a good setup like that get the ram up to 2 gigs, 512mb isn't enough.

Like CRJ said, run 2004.

yeah it should run 2002 fine.

i have this:

256mb ram
pentium 4 2.59ghz
win xp
250gb ide
some onboard graphics card

and it works great.. graphics are edgy, but that doesn't bother me much

You have to buy more RAM and install/have it installed. The trick is that there are many different types of RAM and you have to get the right type for your computer.

RAM varies in price based on the type(speed) and where you buy it. I think that $100 per Gigabyte is close.

With an increase in RAM, FS2004 should run fine.

All of the above people have given you excellent advice but sometimes things work perfectly well as they are. For example my PC specs are
AMD Sempron 2800+ processor
512 mb of RAM
Windows XP Pro
Nvidia Geforce 6800 LE Graphics card
60 gig Hard Drive
My FS2004 runs like a dream and looks like this

So sometimes if it ain't broke don't try to fix it! 😀

Like CRJCapt and Radarman said FS2002 will run perfectly well on your pc but like them i would recommend FS2004!

On second thoughts, listen to CRJCapt and Radarman buy the best you can afford because this will put you in good stead for the future, while mine runs great now it's starting to show it's age.
