  1. Hi all, I'm sick of FSX and want a new 64 bit platform to build a new sim on. However I'm stuck between choosing X-plane 11 or P3D V4. What would you recommend and what sort of performance can I expect with the following specs (I know not to go max settings so I'm happy with medium settings): Intel Core i5 4690K Processor 3.50 GHz (Overclocked to up to 4.3GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Graphics Card 16 GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600MHz RAM Seagate 1000GB SSHD Hybrid Drive Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Assuming my sliders aren't maxed out and sitting in the middle, is it even worth buying X-Plane 11? Kind Regards Paul

    Upgrading from FSX to P3D V4.1

    Thanks, very fair comment. My system could be a lot better, however it's enough to satisfying my needs. I won't be going crazy with the settings. Cheers

    Nice one! Definitely time to move on and 'get with the times'!! Feel like FSX is prehistoric now haha

    Upgrading from FSX to P3D V4.1

    Yeah, I do plan on having the 'essential' addons - FTX global, Active Sky, Rex, PMDG etc

    Yeah I don't plan on maxing out, I never felt the need even with FSX. I assume P3D's lowest settings will still be an improvement over FSX? haha

    Really? Because it spreads the computational 'load' over all the cores? So I perhaps should see an improved FPS over my current FSX FPS (obviously with the correct settings)? Cheers

    I hope that I don't have to touch it again! Looks and feels so outdated! Thanks for your reply

    Haha "So 2006" - you're right, it is. However, it's expensive upgrading to P3D with all the addons I have. Need to purchase it over time....
  10. Hi all, I realise this has most like been asked multiple times by several people, however, those are outdated questions. Currently I'm running FSX on my PC. I want to upgrade to P3D V4 to take advantage of the 64 bit environment and visuals. My only concern is whether my system will allow me to run it to the 'smoothness' I want. I'm not looking for crazy FPS like 40 to 50. I'm looking for something that feels fine and smooth, probably 25-30 fps. I know I can go to the Lockheed Martin website and look at the recommended specs, however I want a first hand account from people who sim regularly. These are my PC specs: Intel Core i5 4690K Processor 3.50 GHz (Overclocked to up to 4.3GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Graphics Card 16 GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600MHz RAM Seagate 1000GB SSHD Hybrid Drive Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Anyone else use a system similar? What are your thoughts? Kind Regards Paul
  11. Im about to buy a new desktop computer to run FSX and PMDG 737ngx but im concerned that it wont run it as well as id like it to? These are the specs... Brand CSL-Computer Product Dimensions 50.6 x 47 x 23.8 cm Item model number 26249 Processor Brand Intel Processor Type Intel Core i5 Processor Speed 3200 MHz Processor Count 4 RAM Size 8192 MB Computer Memory Type DDR3 SDRAM Hard Drive Size 1000 GB Hard Disk Technology SATA Hard Drive Interface Serial ATA Additional Drives DVD+-RW Graphics Card Description NVIDIA GeForce GT610 Graphics Card Ram Size 2048 MB Hardware Platform PC Operating System Windows 7 Edition Home Premium Could you give me some advice?
