  1. >Wait, and in march wait some more for the next new thing sure>to be on the horizon by then.>And so keep on waiting forever.lol I realize the aspects of using the term "wait" in the pc hardware world.back to now, and not later, the 9450 is comming in a few weeks. what im asking is if its really worth waiting for a 9450 wich wont oc as well as a Q66 but has a smaller die (45nm), or to go out and get a Q66 wich overclocks rather well at the cost of having it run hotter? (bigger die, 65nm)E8500 i've put on the back burner because FSX utilizes multi-core's more so than most games at the moment, so a quad seems more logicalim just looking for opinions thats all.
  2. im in a pickleright now I can either go out right away and get a Q6600 or an E8500...or i can wait for the new 45nm Q9450's to come out in March... im stuck on what to do though... should I wait?the only thing that turns me off of the 9450 is the 8.5x multi :SQ6600 will easily overclock to the 3.0ghz spec of the E8500, and is 40 bucks cheaper where I am.or should I go with a plain Dual core with a stock clock of 3ghz wich already is 45nm? (vs the quads 65nm)I do plan on overclocking on air with a thermalright Ultra 120 Ex. heatsinksome info from the guru's? lolcheers!
  3. Scratch,I probably wont be running it at anything more than 1600 x 1050 as i dont plan on upgrading my monitor (Acer 22" widescreen)OS is going to be XP Pro for now because i dont really like how vista is running for me...maybe switch back later when they get the bugs worked outas for aa and af settings, probably mild... nothing too high. FS9 looks good to me with 4x aa and 4x af and im quite happy with thatwill i benefit from a 10K RPM or SCSI over a normal 7200 drive? does it make a noticeable difference?cheersAdam
  4. so im in the process of building a new rig, and here are the core specs:Gigabyte GA-X48-DQ6 (when it comes out in a few weeks)Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 (on order)2x Sapphire HD3870 in Crossfire Mode2x1024 OCZ Reaper PC-8500 @ 1066 mhz2x Hitachi 500gb 7200 SATA in Raid 0 configwill this be enough to run fsx with all the bells and whistles? (meshes, PMDG-like panels, addon scenery etc etc)thanks!Adam
  5. I think PMDG should make a biz jet... like a Falcon 50 or 900 ;)
  6. you can usually find a good route to plan by looking at sigmets and high alt. weather charts on the noaa website :)
  7. Adam,thanks for sharing where you got it. I opted for AM2 thinking that in the future if I want to upgrade I wont have to change the motherboard.anyways,cheers!
  8. >Thanks Sean,>>Actually it's for FS9. I don't have any plans of moving on to>FSX for a while. The AMD processor I'm looking at is dual>core. I can get the cpu and an asus a8n-sli board for about>$570.00 CAD. The 7600GT you suggest, is that 256MB or 512?>>Thanks man,>>Adammay I ask where you are getting it? :( im in Canada as well and thats a good price.I was looking at a AMD 64 X2 5000+ AM2 socket, with an Asus Crosshair mobo and that was around 650 bucks.
