Hi all,I have just bought this computer:http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...e=STRK:MEWNX:ITCould you please tell me how it will run fs9 with loads of add-ons e.g lagging, fps etc. ThanksDale
Advertising the processor at 6.2 GHZ is misleading at best. The processor is comparable to the Intel Core 2 Duo E7600, which will run FS9 well. Throw tons of add-ons flying over a dense city, and it could really slow it down.KJ

You should query the advertiser's statement of speed.AMD show the frequency as 3100Mhz. He appears to have doubled it, presumably thinking that 2 cores double the speed!Colin B

Don't bother answering this guy..he's just trolling like the other 2 similar topics he started.If by any chance you're actually really asking...just load up fs9 and see.

Why is Avsim allowing this guy to continue posting? As Gwillmot and Red1 state , we do not want this type of posting. He is a complete waste of space on our Forum and should , after the last lot of rubbish postings , be barred. Luckily we are not forced to read his ramblings.

In the thread opening post you stated that you have just 'bought this computer'. You are most probably not sane Sir.

HelloI might be wrong but I think Dale maybe a young person trying to get started in this hobby.If this machine is the best he can afford then no shame in that, we can all remember being like that.New people coming into the hobby need encouraging not being treated like this.To Echofox some answers to your questionsQ. Why is Avsim allowing this guy to continue postingA. Because he has not broken any of Avsims rulesAnd the statement that "we do not want this type of posting". The only folk who can decide they don't want this type of posting are the mods.And it is not OUR forum it is Tom Allensworth's

What a bunch of bullies.
Indeed so! Were I a moderator, some of them would have been throughly chastized for such rude, insensitive and inane comments.Dale, the item listed at that link is no longer available, but if it is at all similar to the current listing, you should expect reasonably good performance for FS9 on your new machine...Alert to mods sent for two obnoxious replies...

Yeah I remember seeing something else in another thread he started where he made a remark about his parents not letting him do something, which lead me to believe he is young as well. It's too bad that some feel the need to give the fellow a hard time.

I see the report. Shouldn't be any need for futher moderator intervention in this forum. Anyone (you know who you are) who has nothing better to do than be rude can take your posts elsewhere.

Hi Dale,Like Red1 said, best thing you can do is to wait until the PC arrives and give it a go...I came into FS9 when I could no longer fly Flight Unlimited on account of having broken my previous graphics card. FU3 gave a top of 30 fps and sometimes as low as 10 so I was already immune to jerky motion. With FS9 I get from 100 fps (no AI and little autogen in clear weather) down to single figures in a demanding situation (see my next paragraph).I have a 2.6 gig processor, an old AMD graphics card at 720ish meg, 2 gig of RAM on an ancient motherboard (not even PCI-E or SATA2) with a verrrry slow bus speed and I get tolerable framerates (30+) with most things maxed out. If I intend to fly into a very busy airport I slide the AI Traffic down to nearly zero to keep the framerate up as I approach because my low-spec doesn't like dealing with lots of 3-d AI.That sort of thing isn't a problem: it doesn't matter anyway if you're just floating around with no plan just looking at the scenery, and if you're making a planned flight you ought to be anticipating potential problems like that before taking off.Incidentally, I vaguely recall seeing that if you have an old glass-tube TV, the pictures only change at 25Hz (fps) anyway. It flickers at 50Hz but the pictures are doubled and interlaced. This means that anything on your PC monitor that does 25 fps or better will look at least as smooth as a TV program.A lot of people are spoilt by the availability of good spec PCs but I spend most of my time practically broke (like you I suspect) and don't mind building my own PC. If the one you just bought doesn't perform as well as you hoped, do what I do and treat it as an opportunity to learn about building your own. It's a lot cheaper in the long run, more fun and much more satisfying.Have fun with it.D
