In my experience, FS2004 runs smoother than FS2002.
I was running FS2004 on a Pentium III 600MHz, 384MB PC100 SDRAM, Voodoo3 3000 AGP 16MB video card and while the graphics weren't good (because of my Voodoo3) I was getting good fps between 15 and 20 on the ground at detailed airports and in the air I got between 20 and 40fps.
For your system, FS2004 should run fine. But if you really want to fully enjoy it, you need a new computer.
That's why I'm using a P4 2.8GHz 1GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM, Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB.

I'm a frequent user of FS2002, pretty satisfied...I just checked out FS2004 (only the packing...) but in the description I miss 747, 737, 777, Lear...or at least some of these...I might be wrong, but I met FS2004 as a specialist for historical aviation, like some props on it, I think DC3 is on...
I personally wanted to be an airline pilot, so I stick to 737, 747, 777 and Airbus-Add-ons...not too much in the old beautiful ladies...
Apart from that, the power could become sort of wheeee....let's call it little...
I played the FS98 for Years before, it is sort of a classic, but the details on FS2002 are just amazing! Contrails, sun-reflecions, captain in the front-office, shadows...oh my god, this is really fun!
Hope I could help out.
Oh, by the way, if You care, the 2000 version did like I remember the Concorde, which is by now a total classic! So as a Concorde-guy...E-Bay offers used FS2000...
