not bad.....I am waiting for Vista to come out before I invest in hardware upgrades.

I would, personally, go for a better graphics card - one with more than 512mb RAM - but thats just my opinion.

Definitely go for a card with at least 512mb - preferrably more. I'm just waiting for ATI to release their next generation cards, and I'll be upgrading. (my Radeon X850 XT just can't keep up with FSX....)
