For those Impatient about the 737NGX Release

Recommended Posts

For those Impatient about the 737NGX Release, the CRJ-200 has just been released for X-plane! CRJ-200 . This is not a paid advertisement but from a user of both FSX and X-plane longing for a PMDG similar quality airplane in X-Plane. It seems the day has finally arrived!

Say what you want but it is a lot smoother than FSX and great to practice VOR interceptions and approaches for that matter. All it's missing is more detailed airports and more contributions from 3rd party developers. It does not have all the bells and whistles that FSX has but X-plane 10 is going to be a serious contender to Microsoft Flight!

Well I dunno, I get 40 frames with all sliders set on max....so it can't be smoother then that whilst having addon scenery.

I doubt that.

That plane makes me almost want to buy X-Plane, I dunno though, Digital aviation will have thier CRJ come out in a few months and their Fokker was great [bar the VC thingy but this one has a VC]

I paid $4400 for a new computer just for the 737NGX as I saw how the 747 crashed on my old computer. For now I am enjoying the PDMG 747 on the new computer. It run like a charm and I was never able to fly it without the damn "out of memory crash" - (damn Vista 32).It sooo cool doing the JFK VOR 13L approach in a 747 with 100 fps -smooth as my baby's a@@.

Could you please post your specs here? Thank you in advantage! :)

What the heck did you buy for $4400? That seems rather excessive considering you can build something pretty awesome for a lot less.Sean Campbell

@paulyg123Be very nice to see your spec mate I'm curious to what you spent $4,400 on.

Hmm, I thought 3k was a lot, then again I didn't just build it for fsx. I'm now busy imagining what I could do with the other 1400, probably one of those triplehead things & another monitorThat being said, as long as you're happy with what you've got you didn't pay too much.

If you've got more money than sense you can always hop across to Dell and see how much they charge for the top of the line Alienware...one I had built cost £7200! I never actually bought it though...I just built it on their site out of interest to see how much it would cost...the one I am looking at realisticly is about £2000 and it should do an awesome job!

Just reading what you guys are saying about building new rigs for FSX, I built my own aswell with i7 extreme processor and good graphics cards etc and I was quite shocked at how little improvement there was. After reading lots of forums I realised that FSX works on an old architecture which needs all the right tweaks and settings in order to get any decent performance. After lots of tweaking and frustration I managed to get my PMDG 747 to run at a good FPS and I hope the same goes for the NGX when it is released :D. With all of the time spent developing even better and more complex aircraft by the good guys at PMDG, I just wish FSX was as modern to help them along!

Alienware isn't worth what they charge.Every since they were bought by Dell it's been downhill.All you're buying is a fancy box that lights up with LEDs.

And ATC, and AI traffic, and scenery details at 95% of airports lol

Why would you want to pay over the odd's when u can just equally and possibly build a better computer for £1,000 less.I'm about to start my new build i7-2600K and it's nearly 100% more cheaper than what alienware would chargeIntel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz (Sandybridge)ASUS P8P67 Intel P67 (REV B3)8GB Mushkin Blackline LVEVGA GeForce GTX 560TiCorsair Cooling Air Series A70Fractal Design Define XL Full Tower ChassisXFX 850 WATT PSUTotal : £830

All I can say s read this review about the add-on plane. If I have to focus on FSX it is not spectacular either without all the add-ons for it, so both sims on that level are equal to me. Here is the review of the CRJ 200 Xplane 10 Wordpress CRJ 200

Yes that is the point that I was alluding to old boy! Hence the phrase "more money than sense"The one Im getting is similar to yours - also an i7 2600 3.4 overclocked to 4.6 GHz, also Sandybridge - its a touch more than yours - but thats due to my laziness and lack of building skill - also my SSD is about £500 so that adds a fair amount to the overall price!

If I remember correctly, Paul was using a 990X and a GTX 590. He posted in an earlier thread ("My comp"). So his machine is less than "optimal" for FSX. Very nice specs though. I really do hate the "X" chips though. What a rip off! :( http://forum.avsim.net/topic/334582-my-comp/

I hope you'll be getting the 2600K. If you get the 2600 your overclocking options are nearly non-existent. On the 2600, you might be able to get 3.5-3.6 by overclocking the BCLK, but that is something you don't want to do unless you really know what you're doing. Second, if this computer is for FSX, then you should get the 2500K not the 2600K because the 2600K's only advantage is that it has hyper-threading technology. FSX can't utilize this technology, so you might as well go with the 2500K which is 130USD cheaper than the 2600K. Besides, FSX relies on processor speed, and you can usually attain a higher OC without hyper-threading. you'd be surprised to see that a lot of users here on avsim have 2600K with HT turned off, and they wish they wouldn't have spent the money on the 2600K. Okay, rant over. Just trying to save you some money.
