I downgraded to FSX with ORBX airports/scenery and PMDG and everything else. Realized how crap it was and moved on up to FS9(and iFLY - more comprehensive, more important features then PMDG) and never looked back.
There are still new add-ons and airports being made for FS9. Tons available. freeware. Still the smoothest sim out there.

What P3D did is actually built a sim that can run on a system with the minimum specs they give unlike when FSX launched. Looking at PCPer.com their low end system, it reaches the minimum specs easily and probably wont have many of the bars far off from the minimum but it will run fine based on my P3D Experience.
