New computer for running FSX

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at buying a new PC primarily for running FSX as my current computer is a few years old and not fast enough for FSX. I can run FSX on my PC now, but it's a bit slow and "jerky" in the graphics. With the specs below, could a technical advisor from PMDG give me an idea of how well FSX will run on this new PC?- Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13Ghz (1066 Mhz FSB) E6400- 2Gb Ram (2 x 1024MB) DDR2-SDRAM- 300Gb Hard Drive (7200 rpm)- 512Mb (DDR2) NVIDIA GeForce 7600GS 3D PCI-Express Graphics (with TV-out port and DVI capabilities)- Lightscribe DL DVD/RW DriveFull specs here:http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/au/en/ho/WF...2-78004585.htmlI would really appreciate some advice from someone in-the-know at PMDG and hope to hear from someone soon.Kind regards,

You're gonna want a GF 8 series card, not the old 7 series... the 8's will be able to run FSX under DX10 in Vista once the update comes out.

I'm going to wait till at least early 2007.Vista, DirectX and pricing should be a bit better..maybe..And the other guy is correct about 8000 series cards...I just got a 7600GS, its ok..but my machine is more of the limiting factor.
