I know people are tired of these questions, will my computer run FSX but my old one just bites the dust and can barley run FS2004 so I was wondering if this computer is any good before I buy it.

Sorry for this question which gets annoying.

P.S. I will probably upgrade the processor.

No, it wont. That will read his current computer not the one he is buying.

This should work, and I will most likely upgrade the Ram to more 2.6 dual core processor.

Not even close with a 1.83 CPU and a 5,400 speed HDD.....

And a bottom end vid card too.....

How much you want to spend? then you can be shown something good in your price range....

I didn't really want to have to spend too much, Preferably not any more than $1000

I'll go over by about $200-300

Thanks for the help.
