  1. Good day, Would it be possible to also assist me with which bgl's I have to remove to make the scenery work in P3D v 3.2. Many thanks in advance.

    Searching for weather engine

    I'm excited for the Active Sky product and will most likely buy it as soon as it's out. Because I needed a good weather program though, I went ahead and bought FSGRW. It is absolutely superb and very lightweight. I do not regret my decision to get it at all.

    Searching for weather engine

    I read the preview to the upcoming Active Sky Next in the link posted above. I don't own FSGRW but after reading all the great reviews and comments here and on the net, I was planning on buying it today. Since I don't own it yet, could someone explain whether the new version of Active Sky would be all that much better than FSGRW.. It seems like Active Sky will offer quite nice thunderstorm simulation and turbulence, up-draft and down-draft effects when flying through thunderstorm clouds, BUT, after reading their other features and thinking about FSGRW, would it REALLY become the gold standard of wx for FSX? My impression is that it'll have a few nifty features over FSGRW, especially in relation to thunderstorms, but it doesn't look like a madly revolutionary product. I'd appreciate your input so I can decide whether to get FSGRW or wait for Active Sky. Thank you.

    LMAO... :lol: :lol: :lol: Burst out laughing when I read this- my secretary thinks I'm nuts!!
  5. After researching this quite a bit, I have ordered a 2GB nVidia GTX 660. That's over the top of my price range for the moment, although I know that a 680+ would have been ideal. I read many posts where people were quite happy with the 660 and checked a few YouTube vids of guys with my specs and that card, and the graphics were stunning.
  6. I just spoke with an IT guy who said the same thing as you. The 9800gtx is something like 7 generations behind. For FSX, would a 2GB graphics card make a huge difference? For example, would a 2GB GTX660Ti be A LOT better than a 1GB?
  7. Hi, Thank you for the input. I am looking at overclocking it indeed and will perhaps do that first to see how smoothly NGX runs with it.
  8. Hi all, Let me give you my main specs first: Machine: P4 Core i5 3570k - 3.40GHz (with max turbo frequency up to 3.80GHz) RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600 Hyper Hard Drive: SSD 128GB Graphics Card: nVidia 9800GTX 1GB System: Windows 7 64bit It's not the best system in the world but seems to do the job - i.e. I have lots of scenery add-ons, some payware aircraft and Ultimate Traffic 2. The system runs nicely in the sense that I don't notice stutters too much. If I fly the Feelthere E-jets into Heathrow X for example, it does stutter a little bit but I can live with it. I got the system last year some time and I don't really have the means to upgrade it again, so please don't say 'get a 4.5GHz i7' or something. I want to buy the PMDG 737NGX and want it to run smoothly. I'm also interested in the PMDG 777 when it comes out this weekend (hopefully). QUESTION- is my graphics card OK with my configuration, or should I upgrade it to something else. Yes I know there are much better cards out there, but for my system and FSX would you say I really need a better card to run the NGX and 777 with my addons and AI traffic smoothly? I would appreciate all your advice on this.
