One thing that I was disappointed with for FSX was they took away the 737. You do get a CRJ-700 I believe. (Please anyone correct me if anything is out of order here because I am trying to do this from memory.)
I'm afraid you are wrong. You get the CRJ in addition to the 737-800. You also get a 747-400, but no 777 this time round, and also none of the historic aircraft you got for FS2004. That said, alot of people complain about the default aircraft anyway- and theres a growing number of addons for FSX and most of those for FS2004 will be compatible with FSX anyway (generally aircraft at least).
FS2004 was, and still is, a very good sim. Maybe try downloading the FSX demo if you can http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimul.../downloads.html
, but bear in mind that a service pack is now available and that should improve performance a bit. If you find its much more of a slideshow than a moving picture, then you're better off with FS2004, but if your computer can handle it, and you're looking yo buy your own sim, I dont see why you shouldnt go with FSX. Theres nothing wrong with it, apart from the fact that you need a decent machine.
Hope this helps
