Im buying a new Computer specifically for gaming. I want to get it specified so i can run Microsoft Flight Simulator without it "lagging" or being really so even with all of my add on features. As of now im looking at 512 RAM and a 128 Video card with Windows XP. Ive heard alot of people have had problems with XP. I personally have and am wondering if Windows Me would work better. Any suggestions is much appreciated,

Well there is the CTD - Crash To Desktop problem that we all seem to have.
Personally I hate XP but since I'm stuck with it (Because Linux won't run FS9) I use it. Win MEA Middle East Airlines (Lebanon)">ME is a waste of space, I've had MEA Middle East Airlines (Lebanon)">ME and it just causes problems Windows '98 & '98SE are better.
Get Windows XP because most new hardware comes with XP drivers only, and it does have some good features - and some bad ones.
All Operating Systems have drawbacks.
A Intel P4 3GHz with a good graphics card will run FS9 smoothly.
