Recommended Posts

I decided to change my old pc : a P4 2.8 with 1 G of ram, ATI 1600 ....to something that would hopefully run FS2004 with all the bells and whistles, all slidersto the right. I will fly mostly in Europe with addons such as : Aerosoft german and spanish airports as wellas others. Full traffic with woai, Ground Environment 2006 , Ultimate terrain Europe, PMDG 737 andREX for FS9 when available....My new system would be a : Intel dual E8600 at 3.33 Ghz, 2X1 gigs of DDR ram, G9800 GTX+ 5122 seagate 500 Gs 7200 32m in raid 0, Win XP SP3.I need some advise on a good mobo for this system and would like to know if i would see a increase or performance with DDR3 ram vs DDR2 ramAnyone with the same system ? Do i have enough power ? And please dont try to get me into FSX, Im looking for incredible framerates an a smooth flying experience.....Thank you

hey,i'm more of an airline and systems fan running fs2004 with many paywares on a amd dual core x2 4200 at 2.2ghz, 3 gb ram and nvidia 256mb 7600gt annd all sliders to the right with full weather and traffic and have no sttuters or fps lost. as you can see my specs are much lower than yours and so you should not worry about the fps.with your specs your pc will take you a long way and last longer than mine.
