And old system and FSX traffic

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!So, what happens with me: I have a "kind of" old system, wich is:Core 2 Duo E6420 2.1GhzAsus P5B-Plus SeriesNvidia GeForce 8600GT2 GB DDR2-667Using:FSXWin. Vista 64-bitsPMDG MD-11, REX, Ground Environment X, Ultimate Texture Xand last but not least Radar Contact 4. No airport sceneries.Flying around Mid-west USA I get 15 to 20 FPS. That's good enough for me. Also, the graphics quality are good enough for me too. It's all I need.The problem is: I'm feeling kind of lonely in my FSX, and I'm considering buying Ultimate Traffic 2 or My Traffic. I know my PC can't handle it.So my question to you is: what part(s) of hardware do I need to upgrade to handle traffic? I would say it is not realated to GPU... Maybe memory? I'm kinda noob with this things. What would you recomend?Please consider that in Brazil things PC parts are expensive... I can't get to high!!Thanks for the help!

I have Ultimate traffic 2 and love it. The AI look just as good as tthe default AI and rival some payware. It has been a bit of a rocky road for UT as far as the developers getting the bugs worked out but as of right now it is pretty darn good. With UT2 they changed the way traffic is brought into the sim and I now can run 100% commercial just about everywhere I fly with nice performance. UT2 WILL allow you to run higher traffic than any other package out there.

That's interesting... I'm indeed inclined to UT2. But the question still stands:I doubt it will be flyabe with that system the way it is now. And I have no idea of what hardware should I buy...
