After using it you can decide what you need to give you a more rewarding experience.

One item that comes to mind is that you need a sharp monitor of good quality.

Saitek has a very nice rudder/joystick combo, and you can find it pretty cheap used.

Although for things like keyboards/mice/game controllers I recommend you find something in a store you can touch/use to see how they fit and feel. I like a firmer feed-back, some like ligher springs, your hands may not fit a smaller controller, etc...

You can also get last year or year before flight sim games for very cheap, once again, check the used market. MS Flight Sim is good.
