Should I or Shouldnt I

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I currently fly the pmdg 777-300 ER, this is the only add on aircraft I have now, uninstalled pmdg 747 and level-d 767. Looking to get 737 for short hauls, but the question is will I get 20fps with my rig details below. I get a pretty consistent 20fps with the pmdg 777-300ER now.

 

Would like your advise before investing US$ 70 :-) .

 

I7 920 OC 4 ghz.

6GB Ram @ 1300Mhz

2 x 60GB SSD , os and for fsx

Gtx 660 with 2GB

GSX, Multi Crew, and on DX10 with Steve's fixer installed

 

I will be upgrading my PC middle of next year, so appreciate any advise, should I get tthe ngx now or should I wait. The reason for my concern is that I have read ngx is a fps killer.

 

Thanks in advance

On my both of my computers that I've had the NGX on, it has performed slightly better than the T7 in terms of FPS and VAS. Also, since it's slightly less automated than the T7, I find it more enjoyable to fly and it has enough range to make it from coast to coast and can land on shorter runways.

 

I'd highly recommend the NGX, I don't think you'll be sorry or have any issue if you can run the T7.

Thanks Sean, it is very reassuring. Will go for it now.

 

I was worried that ngx would run like a dog on my machine.

 

I actually thought it was worse on fps and VAS than the 777.

 

I actually loved the level-d 767, was very light on VAS and got a decent fps out of it, but the VZ I fly for retired all the 767's, so there are no routes anymore.

Hello ozflyer,

 

Sure you can, but you could try to maximise your RAM to 8 GB.

 

Cheers,
