Hi all,I'm still running XP and FS9, but i guess i want to try to go over to Win7 with FSX. Can anyone give me an idea on how my computer is suitable to do this? Ofcourse i do want to fly with add-on scenery and planes like PMDG. ;Intel Core 2duo E8500 @ 3,16GhzNvidia 8800GTX/HTDP/768M4Gb Ram Kingston PC2-6400/800 (will be upgraded to 6Gb before i switch over)3 x 500Gb Sata harddriveAntec Truepower Quattro 850WattThanks for taking the time to take a look.

exactly what's holding many simmers to switch to FSX. Even an overclocked Quad Core struggles in complex areas.

I run FSX on a core2 duo @ 4.1 with a GTX 280 and it's fantastic, I use the WinXP 64, the BP=0 tweak and stick to a 24 inch monitor and I don't have to hold any sliders back. The sliders are sensible but not by any means on the low end. I think that 8800 GTX should be okay.Why not load FSX and give it a shot, I was pleasently surprised, and you may be as well.
