Since i play FS95, one thing that i learned from this addictive hobby is to upgrade my computer for every new version. Microsoft gives FS a few new goodies for every new FS version. Instead of improving the existing features, Micorsoft spends a lot of resources in building new features in order to attract customers to buy the new version. Good Marketing!!!
I have owned every version of FS since FS95, when MS decided to make the new FS every two years, i said it was too fast and i would not buy the next version and would wait for the one following. At the present time, I vow not to buy FS2004, but i guess Microsoft will give us some new features which i will not able to resist (AGAIN!). Unforuntately, i couldnt keep myself from the temptation and put myself into this formula:
1.own FS95 -> unsatisfied with my existing hardware -> upgrade to P1 -> nice flying for 2 years -> FS98 relaeased -> attracted by the new multiplayer features
2.own FS98 -> unsatisfied with my existing hardware -> upgrade to P200 -> nice flying for 2 years -> FS2000 relaeased -> attracted by the new graphic system and GPS ->own FS2000
3.own FS2000 -> unsatisfied with my existing hardware -> upgrade to P600 -> nice flying for 2 years -> FS2002 relaeased -> attracted by the new ATC and AI system ->own FS2002
4.own FS2002 -> unsatisfied with my hardware -> upgrade to AMD1.6 ->..............to be continued.....
Everytime i got new FS, i said it was the best FS ever, but the word would be replaced with the newer one. I guess i would be DOUBLE my happiness and satisfication (and financial health) if i upgrade the system every four years. So, if u can afford, then buy new FS and upgrade you hardware every two years. Otherwise, a big change in every four years sounds more affordable and reasonable.

For the owner of Pro version (counting me!), they will say pro is the best. On the other hand, standard verison has its value.
If u are bargin shopper and you dont enter in editing planes, being on-instructor, then you dont really need the extra stuff in pro version. Most add-on planes and panels are compatible in both standard and pro version, and you cant tell the difference. It depends on you if the extra features are worth in paying for.

I was astounded by the difference between FS2K2 Pro and FS2K. 2k2 runs much more smoothly on my 466 Celeron than 2K ever did, plus having intigrated ATC and AI aircraft make for a MUCH more realistic simulation.
