Hello,

Currently my system is an i5-4430 with GTX 1050ti and 8GB 1600mHZ RAM. For Christmas I am thinking about upgrading to an i7-4790k and over locking it to at least 4.3gHZ. Do you guys think that this upgrade will allow my FSX to get better FPS? Currently I am getting 18-20 in the QW 787. I hope to improve that a decent amount. Any help would be appreciated.

Go for a i7 8700k cpu and a gtx 1070ti or a gtx 1080ti gpu if you can afford it

I did and the performance with p3dv4 is perfect

Do you still think that I will get decent FPS with this upgrade?

It depends on what you consider "decent”. CPU clock speed in FSX tends to have a fairly linear relationship with FPS - increase the clock speed by 20% and the FPS generally increases by a similar amount as long as you don't then become limited by the GPU. That said, if you're running at 1920x1080 screen resolution your 1050ti should be fine. If you're really on a budget, consider an i5-4690k. No hyperthreading (FSX is not that good at using extra cores, anyway) but it should overclock at least as well as the 4790k.

Ok, I think I’ll go for it because it sounds like it will boost my performance a prettty good amount.
