Hi Folks,

 

I have the above system (only a year old) and currently run FSX with a stable 29fps and relatively smooth performance.

 

Generally only fly in Europe with Orbx, UK2000 etc scenery installed, A319, B738, Dash8.

 

Considering a move the P3D however, I would like some feedback from users of a similar set-up before committing to change.

 

Thanks 

 

S

Try it for a Month - If You like it - buy a full version - if You don't - don't Renew - $10 Bucks - Go have a Hamburger - ( or two ) !! <_< :smile:

 

If V2.4 doesn't Work for You - Consider V 1.4 - Better Graphics - More Stable - most of the Kinks have been worked out - and ALL You're FSX Stuff is Transferrable .

 

Good Luck in Your New Carreer !! :BigGrin: :wink: :dirol:

You can run p3d v2.4 and try it.

i have a 770 andcan fly with mid-high settings with 1.5 dsr.

i have always 23-25 fps but i have also micro stutter but this no problem for me

each system is different even if they are the same cpu. You *should* do just fine. I'd stay away from1.4 - it is no longer supported and you are locked into a situation worse than FSX.

 

You also might consider kicking that clock up a tad - that CPU can easily handle it - not necessary but every bit helps.

 

As others have said - try it yourself and if you are not happy - 60 day refund on the pro & academic or just cancel the developer version at any time.

Thanks for the advice. I've been warned by the wife that the computer is not getting upgraded......guess that's me told!

I have a similar system (i7 4770K @ 4.5 GHz, 8GB RAM, GTX 670 2GB) and it handles P3D just fine. Turning up the shadow quality too much can introduce stutters and lag. I'm guessing that upgrading to a better video card might help, but like I said it works fine with the GTX 670 too.
