Building a new PC

Recommended Posts

HiMy current PC, which is 5 years or so old, does not run FSX at all really at any decent FPS. At least not the demo, I haven't bothered buying the full versionI'm replacing my PC, and the following is what I have purchased, which is as much as I can afford. Is it worth purchasing FSX as well? will it be acceptable on this system?ThanksGeoffIntel Core Duo E6600 2.4ghz2GB PC-4200 DDR2 SDRAMGeforce NX 7900GT 256mb HD

After 5 years , you certainly were in the new for a new machine :) My machine is 3 years old and it runs FS2004 fine - but I would not bother with FSx with it.Your new machine will run FS2004 VERY well - and should also allow you to run FSx with some limits (by the sound of many posts here) You have nothing to lose by purchasing FSx if you are already committed to buying this new machine.Barry

To be honest who knows. With some of the post in here no machine built today will ever run FSX.Now for me FSX does very well. I do need more ram. I have a middle range computer. So that one should run FSX. With common sense settings, along with some good 3rd party addon AI.

Thanks guys, FS2004 does bring this machine to its knees in dense scenery areasThats why I'm kinda thinking this will make FS9 a whole new sim for me, and I won't need to buy FSX for some time as getting all Traffic, Scenery and the LDS767 running at once on FS9 with smooth frames will be enough, as I can't even do that at the moment !Thanks again...
