Upgrade help

Recommended Posts

Hello,I wish to upgrade my E8500 to this bundle: "Krypton Ankylosaur" Intel Core i7 2600K 3.40GHz @ 4.60GHz Overclocked Bundle I contacted them asking if they could provide 8GB of RAM instead of 4GB but have been answered that they cannot reach the same overclocking with 8GB.Do you think that 4GB would be enough to run FSX with full addons (REX, GEX, UTX, UT2 etc.)?Many thanks for your help.Alberto

FSX is a 32 bit application. This means that it can't actually utilize any more than 4GB of ram. So as far as FSX goes, 4GB is fine. If you run FSX pretty exclusively, then I would stick with the 4 gig and get a good OC because fsx is so processor intensive. However, if you run games that can actually utilize more than 4 gig, you might consider upgrading to the 8 gig option.
