A rig to enjoy FSX. Fully.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I plan on building a rig in a few. My goal is the following : Current gen games at max settings and 30/60 fps always, no matter what. That is what my PC was capable of  3 years ago under the Xbox 360 standard. So in video gaming, I have the Idea, but FSX is quite special and really demanding. I dont want to switch to P3D because most of my Captain Sim addons are for FSX and I would have to re-buy everything for P3D.


I have never been able to enjoy the ton of money I spent on FSX aircrafts mostly because I get between 7 and 15 fps at SFO or ORD depending on the settings. Now, I have a dream:  I want to enjoy FSX maxeed up. Be able to purchase any add ons and never drop below 30fps, fly with real weather, etc etc...

What kind of rig would do that? 40fps at JFK all cursors to the right REX, Ultimate TrafficX with scenery aboard the L1011 by Captain Sim which is my favorite plane so far.


Since I dont know a lot about the matter, can someone give me brands and models of different CPU's Graphics Cards and motherboards ad well as some tips to enjoy FSX and Xplane fully.
