  1. Thanks dmarques I want to play in 1080p :)
  2. Just did the firestrike test, I got 10,353. I should note my 3d mark firestrike version is about 1 year old so I am now downloading the latest update & will rerun.
  3. Thanks both this is the card: At the time it was almost equivalent to a GTX 970. I'm going to try the demo of XP11 & see what happens, I really want to give Flight Simming a try again..
  4. Hi all I've been a member of AVSIM for a long time, I don't remember exactly when I joined but it was in like 2002 I believe, anyway FS9 is the last real SIM I dug my claws into & once FS X came out I gave up on simming completely as my system just couldn't handle it & I was barely getting 30 fps on FS9 as it was... I've since then upgraded my system (2016) & was looking at rekindling my love for the hobby & am trying to decide between Prepair 3d or Xplane 11, what I need is advice on my rig, I'll be honest with you I fired up FSX on it & all maxed out I was barely getting more than 10 fps, I couldn't believe my eyes... Here's what I have: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core overclocked to 4.5GHz CRYORIG H7 49.0 CFM cooler Asus Z170M-PLUS Micro ATX LGA1151 Kingston FURY 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB 2.5" SSD Radeon VAPOR-X R9 290 4GB PCI-E LITE Thermaltake Core V21 MicroATX Mini Tower EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX 27 inch 1080p monitor This was I believe a high end system, at least back when I built it almost 2 years ago so imagine how shocked I was to see low FPS in FSX. Any advice on what I should upgrade & if either sims mentioned above can run well on max settings (or close to max?) Many thanks for your help guuys, cheers.
  5. Does your wife have sisters? She's erm very cute! lol
  6. Hi guys,Well this file looked pretty attractive for my sim so I downloaded it but when installing it tells me it didn't find FS on my system which is of course untrue. The thing is my laprop is partitionned into 2 disks, C and D and FD is in D:/program files not C:/Program files Could that be why I can't use it? I've tried installing the add on both in C and D to no avail, any help would be appreciated!William :)

  8. Hi all,I recently bought a laptop off ebay which at first I deemed not powerful enough for FS X but it seems that after some tweaking, it becomes quite playable.My system:T5600 Core 2 duo 1.83 GHz2048 MB DDR2 RAM 533 MHz160 GO HD 5400 RPMnVidia geForce 7600 Go 128 MO dedicated RAMWindows XP Media CentreAll setting in low I get 20+ frame rates, in medium low, 16-20 and medium high I get 12-16 fpsI find that Autogen is of course the power hog so I usually leave it at medium and still get acceptable results.In FS 9 I am at 26 fps+ with everything maxed out :)Will post screenshots in appropriate forum!Blessings and happy new year!William

    FS 9 over FS X? Yes definitly

    Thanks for the replies guys, do you think I should bring down some of the settings in FS to prepare for these add ons or will performance remain the same if I install them?Wish you all a Merry Christmas.A bientot :)William
  10. Hi I am new,My name is William I am 24 from Paris, France. I am also Canadian. I recently received a brand new laptop, Toshiba Satellite A-100 with a T5600 Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB of DDR2 RAM at 533 MHz, 160 GB of HD and a Geforce GO 7600 with 128 MB of dedicated RAM.I was so excited I installed FS X right away... With all the slides maxed out I wasn't above 4.2 images/sec... I must say I was quite disappointed, I didn't try any other configuration within the sim but I don't know that I could get improvements???So then I installed FS 9 and everything maxed out I get minimum 16 fps with an average of 24-28... Pretty cool eh?If you guys have any tips on add ons I could use for FS 9 like water textures scenery and better world textures, let me know!Regards,William :-)
