IM just curious what everyone out there is using for flight sim. I dont even have the software just yet. im basically asking if you had $500 to spend on Flight Simulator what would you get? Also please list you current config for your flight sim computer. Here are mine:

Inside my computer case:

MSI 875P FIS2R motherboard socket 478
Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
1GB PC3700 Corsair RAM
Gigabyte Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB
Sony DVD reader/CD-RW drive
2x Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120GB Hard disk
420W PSU
Lite-On CD-RW drive
And a few case fans.

I built it all myself so it's only had the odd few fires, BSODs and short circuits. LOL not really. (well don't speak too soon, Jet)
