I know very little about the technical side of computers.
Here are two questions:
1)I wish to purchase the very best hardware for Flight Simulator X. Could someone make recommendations as to the best specifications.I want the ultimate performance.
2)I would also appreciate receiving recommendations regarding control systems.I am a fixed wing pilot presently converting to helicopters and would prefer to have collective, cyclic & pedals (that give as realistic responses as possible)

The second question is not a Graphics card question, please ask in a differnt fourm. As for question 1, you need to purchase the best processor not graphics card. Flight Simulator X is CPU bound not GPU.
