  1. I only run heavy payware airports ,orbx, pmg, etc with settings cranked up high on fsx se and thats using steves DX10 fixer which pushes more of the load onto the GPU. Im still using a gtx 780 and rarely see more than 60% load unless Im in 8/8ths active sky overcast and then will occasionally nudge 100% but those conditions are way to rare. You do realize FSX is CPU intensive right? The 1080ti is highly recommended for 64 bit P3D platform but its dead money for fsx 32 bit.
  2. That card is a massive overkill for fsx.
  3. Yes mine is at 4.6ghz. Its not hard to do and its fun but also the big jump in performance is worth it . You shouldnt damage your machine You can start by reading forums like this and there is a ton of info on google and here is an avsim thread running now on the topic
  4. You can also overclock the i7-7700k and that will give you a significant boost in performance
  5. Unless of course bit coins continues to gain. The cards could actually be cheaper now than in 12 months
  6. Go to control panel/ sytem and security/system/system protection/select OS drive/press configure tab/press delete tab This will clear all restore points. Recently I was going nuts when I lost 25gb and got it all back after deleting system restore you can always create a fresh one from the same page
  7. It works straight out of the box . You dont need to do anything however its also highly configurable for gurus who want full control over their PC but I leave mine in default mode. They have a free version but I went PRO which includes lifetime updates and the dev is very active
  8. Im flying now and under "active processes" its only my flight sim stuff running. Everything else is shut down BUT without crashing your PC , it constantly monitors making small adjustments, you can still open programs and can surf the web, it just adds what you selected to "active process"
  9. You can buy software called process laso. It will take care of all that when your gaming automatically. Simply brilliant
  10. You said CPU running at 100%? go to task manager and click on processes and see what else is running in the background eating up your cpu
  11. Go to App Data/Roaming/ Internal Workings/VOX ATC/ go down to VASettings.xml / find "Taxi Airspeed Value=10.0 and change it to 16.0 or 17.0 or what ever you want. Save the changes. The planes will move along a lot quicker but they will still slow down for the turns,so it looks very realistic.
  12. If your happy flying into default airports that works. I can't do it so I choose a real world route via flight status website and then fly between pay ware Airports with fs captain. It's a very flexible program. However it does take a bit of setting up
  13. FSX-SE

    Dont go blowing big dollars yet. wait and stick with whatever you have IMO and let the sim wars play out ,there is some exciting stuff going on and give it a year or 2 when there is more direction and then jump in head first with the 'chosen one"
  14. FSX-SE

    FSX SE with Steves DX10 fixer is an excellent alternative to P3D If you dont get OOMS then there really is no reason to spend up big to P3D v4 However if you want to fly with all sliders right and in PMDG over ORBX full fat regions and into Payware airports and you dont want to risk an OOM then V4 is all the rage
