  1. I surely have considered building my own, however I have come to the conclusion that I would need more time than the only Saturday afternoon that I'm off to view all the tutorials and build it myself etc... Alternatively I had the boring idea of just giving my local PC store the specs I want to get and let them build it for me, however the working hours i would have to pay the staff for building it would not be worth it in the end. So I continued looking and caught the attention of another custom build PC the following specs: AMD FX 8320E Octa-Core Processor 16GB DDR3 RAM 2000GB SATA-II HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 ASRock N68-GS4/USB3 Mainboard Now what I'm looking for is basically included. Is there anything else I need to be aware of and look out for before I actually finalize my purchase?
  2. I agree with alienware being overpriced. I actually own a laptop and I must say I have a feeling that I paid more for the brand rather than the actual laptop... Nonetheless I'm thinking of giving the specs I need to my local computer store and see how much it would cost to get it build. I have found an article a few weeks back on system memory http://lifehacker.com/performance-tests-show-that-16gb-of-ram-is-overkill-1724827429 not sure if it is the most reliable source but still.. Is it possible to combine an AMD processor with an Nvidia graphics card or will I have problems? I read that people do face more problems running FSX with AMD so I will get Nvidia.
  3. Thanks for the tip! I certainly am considering of upgrading in the coming years when I get my next PC. As my knowledge on computers is very limited, I wouldn't have thought that upgrading a pc would be so laborious! So how can I tell weather a PC is upgradeable or not? As for the ai-traffic, i make custom flight plans and the traffic volumes in the regions I fly in are a joke compared to the volumes that you'd see in the US thank you very much for the informative answer! it seems to me that origin is distributed only in North America? does it make a difference when the 8GB RAM is a '' 2x 4GB dual channel'' ? Should I avoid graphic cards that aren't Nvidia ? Somewhere I had picked up that Nvidia cards are the first choice when it comes for a PC for FSX. -kind regards
  4. that indeed looks gorgeous! Thanks for sharing could also be promotional photos of an upcoming add-on My eyes however now have caught the attention of a computer that is on sale at my local PC store; it's a custom-built PC for rougly the same price.... however i realised that the processor is not an intel! It has an AMD FX6300 6x Core processor. it makes me wonder that the seller nowhere mentions what GhZ it has...Should I be worried ? The graphics card is an AMD R7-260x 2GB
  5. Hi, thanks for the quick reply. the processor is an Intel Core i7-4790 I am not sure what that's supposed to mean. How can I tell if a processer is faster/stronger than another? I thought that i7 is means that its faster than i5 and i3...
  6. Dear AVSIM community, after 5 years my computer is starting to lose its capabilities and becoming a lot slower despite cleaning it and even resetting it to its factory state. So I have decided that it is time to get a new PC. Doing research I found lots of forums and blogs discussing 'what PC is ideal for FSX' however the topics seemed to be outdated and not really answering my concerns... I don't know much about computers but this is what I was able to find and seemed to me price reasonable: NvVidia GeForce GTX750 T1 1TB HDD + 256 SSD Prozessor 3.56 GHZ Intelcore I7 DDR3 8GB RAM Windows 8.1 The Desktop is a Lenovo (an exhibition model) for modest 777EUR (~880USD) I use only Scenery and Traffic Addons, with traffic set preferably to 100% :smile: Currently I run FSX SE on my laptop which I think is not even half as good; besides the long loading FSX is performing surprisingly well and almost never lags. I would like to hear from you guys a second opinion weather this is pricely a good deal, or I could get for the same value perhaps something better? I have the impression that FSX will run reasonable well on the above mentioned system? What do you think? I would be happy to hear from you guys and take this opportunity to excuse my bad english (obviously it is not my first language ) Thanks in Advance
