8800gtx to gtx285 OC

Recommended Posts

I would appreciate comments as to whether this would be a worthwhile change on my system.The 285 is several generations newer than the 8800 GTX and the specs seem to indicate a substantial performance gain.I know that FSX is CPU bound but my last two upgrades (E8500 then i7) have not brought the performance improvement I expected. I wondered if the last two systems were no longer CPU boung but graphics bound. Note that the 3840 x1024 of the TH2GO does cause a substantial burden on the graphics card which may not manifest itself at lower resolutions.

I do not have your exact situation, but I have had the opportunity to run an 8800gt and a GTX 260 with my Q9550. It seems the more money we spend, the smaller the improvements we see. My sim is better with the 260. But it is subtle. It's all in how you set it up.Bob
