Performance on new build.

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,Just a question on the performance I'm getting after upgrading. I'm now running FS9 in Windows XP SP3 with an i5 2500k overclocked to 4.2GHZ, 3 gb of Patriot Extreme 1333 DDR3 ram, 250gb hard drive, Asrock Z68 Pro 3-M motherboard, EVGA GTX 260 core 216, and a Creative Extreme gamer xfi sound card. I am using a 28" LCD at 1920x1200 resolution.Also have the following addons,REXActive Sky EvolutionUltimate TerrainGround Environment ProfessionalNhancer settings at 16x AF and 8xsq combined AAI am getting 24-34 fps in heavy cloud cover in places like New York City, O'hare in Chicago, Miami International from Latin VFR with the Quality Wings 757. Usually getting closer to 34 with the Flight One MD-80, and the same with any Carenado plane. This is with all sliders to full, 80 miles for sight distance, and 60 miles for cloud distance. Also have traffic set to 95%. Not really experiencing any stutters, but fps just won't budge much over 34 fps in heavy clouds. If it's clear or light clouds, obviously much more. Does this sound about right for my current rig or should I be getting more?Thanks!

Dude, you're getting double the amount of FPS I get on my laptop in the exact same slider config minus the clouds.I'd be pretty darn happy with that. :(

LOL LOL.gifDidn't mean to come off like I was complaining. I am enjoying this new build, but I just wanted some opinions, especially from others with similar setups in regards to performance.
