Graphics Cards

Recommended Posts

Hi all and a Happy New Year.I'm curious to know what differences clock speeds make with FSX. Pmdg recommends using a 1 Gig card for the NGX 737. I'm using an ATI 4850with 512 meg of ram .1 Gig would help as I can see when I change between the outside view to the virtual cockpit takes about 1 second to be fully visible again. So does clock speed make a big difference. I'm looking at getting a Msi GTX 560 TI SOC to 950 as much the same price as the standard 560 Ti about 820mhz. I know FSX is mainly CPU and I have my 2500k running @ 4.6. Would a non Ti 560 GTX suffice?Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks in advance

Overclocking the graphics card shouldn't make much difference. It'll help, but I doubt it'd be enough to perceive. Probably enough to allow a slightly higher aa but that'd be it.Edit: compared to your current card yes, it'll make a noticeable difference, but not between two of the same card, one with a 10-15% oc.
