1) I would have stuck with windows 7 64 bit for FSX.


2) Using a 32 bit operating system will limit your memory ram to 3 GB I believe, with a 64 bit OS you can use 4 GB. The PMDG  737 NGX uses about 800,000K, so it would be one fifth of the total available. That still leaves plenty for some fancy sceneries, weather and other goodies.


3) You RAM is a bit slow. Try for 2133 Mhz with fast clocks, but in general this would go with an upgraded system as a whole.


4) I believe the main culprit of running out of memory is the 32 bit OS. If you decide to make a full upgrade to a new system, I can point you in the right direction.

Agree with Alberto.  No reason to use a 32b OS and many reason not to.


Full names in the PMDG forums please.


Excuse me for asking, but what is the significance of the Medal Of Honor as your identification picture?
