  1. Please, please, please don't be another MICROSOFT FLIGHT.
  2. I did end up with my usual brand EVGA. I'm waiting on the arrival of an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING Graphics Card. Happy flight simming all.
  3. I've come to depend on community feedback for major hardware purchases and I've got one coming up. I'm planning to upgrade my video card from an EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti that I installed in 2015 to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. To be honest the 980 Ti has very little trouble with anything I've thrown at it but I'm looking to move it to another gaming PC and want my primary PC to have the extra horsepower for the future and to get the most out of the Oculus Rift I've recently begun a new addiction with. The rest of my rig includes 32 GB of memory, SSDs, an Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.00GHz on an ASUS Z97-A-USB31 motherboard. From research I've seen different specifications and configurations, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID GAMING, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 HYBRID GAMING, etc Any suggestions? Pitfalls to watch for? Thanks for the help.
  4. He will never be forgotten for what he brought to the flight simming community. Wow.. I can't believe he is gone. I hope avsim lives on, to honor him.
  5. Thanks, I checked it out.Looks like I can use his fsx benchmark Here is a quick link: http://library.avsim.net/search.php?Search...xutil&Go=Searchand Fraps.http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  6. So, whats the reason for the demise of FLY! the simulator?I havent been up to date on the whole thing. They just stopped after II?http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  7. What do you folks that benchmark FS use for software, something like FRAPS? I usually try different things then just ctrl z and see what it says for FPS. But is there a more uniform way of doing it so you can run a more consistent test? Somehow to run the same flight, with the same views or scenery every time? This is pretty basic, but an efficient way of doing it eludes me. I've tried to search for it here, but either its not mentioned and assumed or Im just missing it. Thanks for the suggestions.http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  8. You know, some times I get nostalgic and start looking up old things. One thing in particular, software. I remember the hoopla for the original FLY! and I still have that free t-shirt they gave people that bought the simulator. That was a long time ago. Yeah I just wore that t-shirt this week, its worn looking and my wife wanted to throw it out years ago but I refused to let it go. It says "I fly tri" on the back and has a Cessna on the front. I googled the old FLY! domain and the sim and there doesn't seem to be much out there. But good ole avsim has a forum for it. Thought I would take a momentary break from MSFS and be nostalgic for a moment. Reminisce. Been trying to get back into MSFS seeing that I haven't been in a real single engine in over a year (Last flight was my BFR) and with my two young boys (still in diapers) I don't know when I'll ever get back into a real plane due to time and expense. But I love my flight simming (not the config file tweaking and testing - bah!!)So I guess I'll poke around this forum and see what there is to see, maybe I'll find something of interest. Hey maybe I'll shoot over to youtube and due a search there too.Have fun FLY!rs!http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  9. Anything new to add since the service pack came out? I don't think it addressed any of this but I've been researching myself and I'm just wondering. http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  10. Great stuff, love to read about it all. Was running low on room and was searching for HD info. Running a 150 (or so) GB Raptor and running low on room. Thinking of getting a 500 GB sata for C and put the raptor on D for all flight sim stuff.But the CPU info is great. I have an e6600, and am glad to see my MB also handles quad cores if I want to upgrade in the future to a fast CPU.http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  11. I gave up getting to max things out a long time ago.I recently built the following:Intel
  12. I figured it might have been. I checked the first page or two and didnt see anything mentioned. But I am not usually the first with news anyway. Regardless, just spent some time in this plane and its a gorgeous piece of work just like the commander.http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  13. Not sure if this has made the rounds yet but for you AOPA members:Free to AOPA members, the virtual Cherokee Six duplicates nearly every detail of the sweepstakes airplane, including the S-Tec System Fifty-Five X autopilot

Your system is a PC of Mass Destruction. I mean you have TWO, count them TWO X1900XTX video cards. LOL... I appreciate your effort to test and report, kudos to you. Wow though, shoot if most people can swing one X1900XTX, and you have two, and still the add-ons will bring it to its knees.anyway... looks like my upgrade may still need me to sit on my hands a bit longer and build something beefier in jan/feb 2007.Thanks for the info!!http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
  15. >The new DirectX 10>video cards will be available in spring of 07. Until then, you>can find plenty of Nvidia Directx 9 cards with 256 meg of ram>for under $70.I thought the DX10 cards were going to start showing themselves earlier than that. Like maybe even THIS YEAR before it ends.http://www.lemosnet.com/misc/gpilotsig.jpg
