Do you think I'd see an increase?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,Basically I uninstalled the NGX about a month ago as I wasn't enjoying it due to low FPS, with the aim of reinstalling it when I build a new rig early next year.Anyway, I've just had a "mid term" upgrade (mainly for battlefield 3) and have upgraded my GTX 460 SE to a GTX 560 TI.Do you think I'd see a performance increase with this change? The rest of my rig is a core i5 760 @ 3.4ghz, with 4gb ddr 3 ram @ 1333mhz.If you think I'd seen an improvement (bearing in mind it ran at 35fps+ outside of VC and only 20 within, on the ground) perhaps a new card that is a lot better than my old one could boost my VC performance.Anybody got any thoughts?Thanks :)

You should be ok Luke, you might need to be conservative about what settings you have, zap the sliders down a bit, that should keep you happy till you upgrade next year. Keep away from any mega airports, and don't run anything along side fsx to lessen the chances of an OOM's.

That I5 760 is still a great CPU. Overclocked to 3.8 - 4.2GHz it's a great performer. The 560Ti may help in bad weather depending on your settings, but a 4GHz OC will probably get you to the mid 20's FPS

there will be no increase in FR, however the variability for me has dropped a bit from a variable FR in the 20% range to maybe 10% or less in the VC view on landing... also, in limited testing, there seems to be much less stopping, stammering and pausing.....that only the NGX caused me before the SP1
