I would like to get a flight sim on my PC with an A320 on where I can use the FMGC and all the cockpit switches.
I am not a computer guru and would like to know where I can buy it etc.
Not sure what is the best to get? Flight sim X or Steam? Please help!!

As no-one has taken the bait I will
In my opinion the best flightsim available at present (and this is a huge point of debate in the FS community) is Prepared V4, its a 64bit program built on the MS Flight Sim X platform (which was 32bit), you do get Xplane with amazing scenery and some nice default aircraft, but its not study level aircraft. If i were in your shoes i would not waste money starting up with FSX or FSX Steam edition, as it is a old platform although still widely used, if you are going to spend the bucks rather go new.
Regarding the Airbus A320, well you really only have 2 options, one is Aerosoft A320/A321 Proffesional the other Flighsim Labs A320, the latter is a study level sim, quite pricey at $130, the AS A320 also offers a working FMGC with most of the trimmings most swithes work, but not so system intensive as the FSL A320, but comes in at approx $75. If you are going to purchase any of these you would need updated Airc data which a subscription to NAVDATA or Navigraph would be essential.
If you have more questions, please fire away!
For the other members of the community, as I said at the beginning it is only my opinion.
