New SLI FSX Rig

Recommended Posts

Hi all, First post so here goes. Looking to build an ultra-high performance FSX machine as my Dell XPS 15 doesn't quite cut it, although does surprisingly not too bad. Here are the specs I'm looking to build. i7-2600K (to be OCd)Corsair H100 Extreme Liquid CoolingCorsair Graphite 600T Limited Edition WhiteAsus P8Z68-V Pro 1155 MoboCorsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz CL8 Low voltage Ram2x eVGA nVidia GTX 570 Superclocked SLICorsair Force Series 3 120GB SATA 6GB/s SSD (OS/FSX)WD 600GB Sata 6GB/s VRapOCZ ZX Series 1000W '80 Plus Gold' Modular PSU3D 24" LED 1080p Monitor (Samsung or LG)Nvidia 3D kitSome form of Blu-ray disk player Also: on my laptop I am having an issue with Bojote's external FPS limiter. I get an error when it tries to run FSX.exe when running the .bat, but running FSX.exe directly, FSX starts fine. Error code 0xc0000005Thanks all

Look here at #4 for solution of the Limiter
Followed that to the letter, still getting FSX.exe error.
FSX does not support SLI or Crossfire. But other games do.
I need the SLI for other unrelated software usage. Ignore the SLI.

Hmmmm, sort of a general error. Could be anything. Java up to date? Have you updated the laptop with the latest .NET 4.0 and 3.5 framework?

start C:\"FSX\"FPS_Limiter.exe /r:D3D9 /f:30 /x:OFF /l:OFF "C:\FSX\fsx.exe

And Windows update shows no updates available. Java is fully up to date.

On the link a user has a similar problem and has solved it. It's somewhere near the bottom of the post. http://nzff.org/foru...showtopic=15131 Could you move your fsx.cfg and then let fsx rebuild it.

Problem was my java (which was up to date) must've been corrupt because a Java reinstall fixed it. However, I now have a new problem. Because this is a laptop, it has integrated Intel HD Graphics and also has a nvidia GT525M graphics. How can I get FSX to use my GT525 instead of Intel Integrated?

There are two GFX cards in your system on a laptop ? It would be better if you could disable it from the BIOS. Do both cards show up in the device manager ?

Not 2 graphics cards. One is the standard integrated Intel chip, the other is the actual nVidia graphics card. I could try disabling the intel graphics.

Yep you will have to as the integrated card is the default (Intel). You probably should have an option in the BIOS. Could you post your lappy model.

Its an Intel XPS L502X. No option in bios to disable it. Tried disabling in device manager but screen just turned black and had to force reboot.

It will turn black as the Intel is the default display device. Hey that's a Sandy bridge system nice. You should be having an external vga connection on the machine , do you have an external display like a VGA monitor or a LCD ?

No. I use the standard 15" display as it's a 1080p LED screen. Yeh its a i5-2540M 2.60GHz Dual-core. 4GB 1333MHz Ram. 500GB 7200RPM HD. All for £700. But for some reason, FSX wont use the GT525M, even though in the nvidia control panel I have selected it as the preferred graphics processor. How do I make the nvidia the default display device?

Lucid Virtu should take care of switching between the IGP and the discrete GPU, I have no idea how it works or how to set it up though

Hmm this is a bit new to me, but I will try to help as much as I can. In the the Nvidia control there should be an option to create a profile try adding fsx to it and asking the nvidia control to use the 525m. don't shut the default display device system will blank out.

Tried all that. If I run just the standard FSX.exe direct (no FPS limiter) it uses the GT525M, but launching from the .bat and using the limiter it uses Intel
