    Pardon my ignorance, but which is which?
  2. I have an old bloomfiled I7. The article that gave me a pause was this: http://www.tweaktown.com/news/55219/7700k-vs-6700k-much-hotter-barely-faster/index.html "But the temperatures of Intel's new Kaby Lake architecture are worrying, with Tom's Hardware noting that the new 7700K was hitting 54C under gaming loads, while the 6700K runs relatively cool in comparison at just 34C. When overclocked, we're looking at 61C for the 7700K while the 6700K hits just 48C." To me running a system 25% hotter for 1-2 percent frame rate increase seems like not a good idea. Am I wrong? Or is Tom's Hardware test flawed?
  3. I have read that 7700k runs much hotter than 6700k which gives me a pause on getting it in order to get very little benefit. What do you guys think?

    Vista or XP

    Its a terrible idea to run most of your program in Administrative mode. If you get hacked then they will have access to everything and every password in your system. This indeed why its done that way in Vista.

    Fantastic shots - FTX for FSX!

    Me too..but by the time they come up with S.W. US FS11 will be out. The only US part I see is Pacific Northwest and that will be middle of this year. I guess I have to just go with GEX

    ACES does not hand pick and place land class for the Flight Simulator. It gets its information from the host country. Many host countries land class and road data are lacking and this is not one area what MS should be blamed for. I guess they can pay for more detailed land class from private companies if available, but then the cost will be prohibitive.
  9. Don't discount 8800. Its not between NVIDIA and ATI. Its just that you have a very low end video card that is making your Quad Core useless for modern gaming.

    A Positive on SP2

    wow..now that is what late fall textures should look like. Is that default? I thought default looked like sand dunes.
  15. LOL..this is so surreal. "Now I will be flying FS2002. It looks better than FS9.I have a 2.1GHz GF3 system with 512 ram and by the time I scale down FS9 to run smooth all the eye candy is gone."Just substitute versions.
