    FSX Performance

    Thanks man! I'm going to try this. I've gotta get it to work. There's to much to experience with FSX and I feel like I'm missing out, especially with a system like mine.

    FSX Performance

    I completely agree, not sure why it wouldn't be working correctly. I'll be tweaking with it from any advice I can get from this thread. Your rationale for choosing FSX overr X-Plane is exactly why I'm interested in getting FSX to work right. Thanks for the input. Also, to all, sorry for the duplicate topics.

    FSX Performance

    Hello everyone, I've done most of my flying in X-Plane, but I also have FSX (SP2). The performance between the two is astounding: X-Plane runs very smooth, regardless of aircraft/scenery, while FSX, if I'm able to get it going at all, is incredibly slow and choppy. It tends to bog down my system and crash itself. In order to get advice, I figured I'd have to post my PC's specs, so here are the main bits: -ASUS P8277-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 SATA 6 Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel motherboard with UEFI BIOS -EVGA 02G-P4-3063-KR GeForce GTX 660 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support video card with ACX cooler -i7 processor -8GB RAM -Windows 7 OS If there are any more specs that need to be posted, I'll add them. I'm not looking to make a complete switch. FSX's third-party aircraft and add-on communities are attractive, though, and I'd like to use both because I'm able to with my VA. Any advice, as well as opinions on one sim over the other are welcomed.

    FSX Performance

    Hello everyone, I've done most of my flying in X-Plane, but I also have FSX (SP2). The performance between the two is astounding. X-Plane is smooth, while FSX barely runs, and is so slow and choppy when I'm able to start it up. Obviously, to get any advice, I figured my PC's specs would be needed, so are the main bits: -ASUS P8277-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6 GB/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel motherboard with UEFI BIOS -EVGA 02G-P4-3063-KR GeForce GTX 660 192-bit GDDR5 PCI express 3.0 SLI support video card with ACX cooler -i7 processor -8GB RAM -Windows 7 OS Any more information necessary, I'll gladly add to this. I'm not interested in making a complete switch, but the add-on and third-party aircraft communities surrounding FSX make it attractive. I'd like to use both. Any advice on performance and opinions on one sim and the other are much appreciated.
