    "I drove down to Fry's Monday expecting to buy MS Flight Simulator X Deluxe, but all they had was standard at $35. That's great for grandparents buying a game for one of their little Buckaroos, but what enthusiast wants to be saddled with half a game? Best Buy didn't have it either. I have zero interest in getting it shipped to me or I could have gotten it at the Egg or one of the gaming sites.

    Seems whoever orders software at the retail sites has no clue."

    I posted this in a different forum and folks started saying my video cards might not be up to task anyway.

    I answered back, "Well no trouble with 2004 and here are the system requirements, if my 6800 GS (485/1100) or X850 Pro (540/1180) can't handle it it will be a sign to get a new card.

    System requirements

    Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista
    Processor: 1.0 Ghz
    RAM: Windows XP SP2 - 256MB, Windows Vista – 512MB
    Hard Drive: 14GB
    Video Card: 32MB DirectX 9 compatible
    Other: DX9 hardware compatibility and audio board with speakers and/or headphones
    Online/Multiplayer Requirements: 56.6 kbps or better for online play"

    anyone here had trouble with this game and a video card?
