Upgrading my system ..will it help FSX?

Recommended Posts

After a long absence I am starting FSX again.  I know my system is kind of old now, but my understanding is that FSX is not going to take advantage of current advances in GPU and CPU.  Nevertheless,  I was wondering if any upgrade to any components of my system will give me extra performance in FPS.  

 

 

 

i7 920 Bloomfield.   OC'd to 3.8ghz,

12 MB of Triple Channel Memory  8 8 8 24

NVIDIA   GTX275

Windows 7 64bit

 

Thank you in advance

Honestly, your system isn't that bad.  If anything, a GPU upgrade might benefit you the most, in my opinion, which might help a bit with FPS and smoothness if you're using high end add-ons like REX textures direct and such other 4096 textures.  I'm assuming that you meant 12 GB of ram and not mb,  :)  Before you start upgrading, you might want to take a look at the AVSIM Basic FSX/P3D Configuration Guide and the Software & Hardware Guide for FSX, if you haven't already. You can find them here:

Hope that helps a little.

 

Cheers,

Jeff
