  1. HI guys I am thinking of buying a 737 payware for FSX SE and since my computer isn't a gaming one im having trouble deciding on the ifly or pmdg. Here are my specs, Intel i7-3632QM CPU 2.20GHz 8gbRAM and Intel 4000 graphics (Total graphics memory:1824 MB and 128MB video memory) Based on my specs which one do you think will have the best frame rate.
  2. So after flying on FSX for the past few years, I've decided to update my tank of a laptop and invest in a new Desktop to run P3D. So far I've roughly built up these specs, trying to keep in mind that i don't want to spend to much and also get the best for the buck. Intel Core i7-4790K @4.0Ghz ASUS Z97-A EVGA GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0 Corsair 750D Western Digital Blue 1 TB HDD Samsung 850 EVO 120GB SSD Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 Mem. Asus 24x DVD-RW Serial-ATA Internal OEM Optical Drive Corsair H80i Hydro CPU cooler With these specs in mind I stumble to find a cheap Power supply that gives me at least 750W. I'd like to have everyone opinions on computer parts you recommend and what power supply would be best for me. Thanks you!
  3. Hi everyone, After being out of flight sim for a good few years, I am considering getting back into it by purchasing a pre-built desktop system for FSX, with the view of possibly upgrading to P3D. I intend to use the system just for flight simulation as I wouldn't really play anything else and I would also want to run add ons such as additional scenery, Active Sky and exceptionally detailed aircraft such as the 737 NGX. After looking at some of the other threads, i5 seems the way to go as FSX doesn't make use of the cores with the i7? Is this the same with P3D? Also, would I want to install FSX/P3D on a separate drive from the OS? Or does that make no difference in regards to speed? I have found this system from AWD IT: Does anyone else have any recommendations as to where I should look at buying one from? I have taken a look at PCSpecialist, Scan, Overclockers UK, Wired2Wire, ChillBlast, UKGaming Computers, CyberPower and Palicomp. However, its all quite overwhelming as to where I should really look at getting one from. Thank you in advance for your help
  4. Hello guys, about a week ago I asked for help about a new system, now I have (well I think) found a good new setup. Let present it to you First things first I probably will overclock it a bit.. i7-4770k @ 3,5gHz oc after Nvidia GTX 770 2048 mb [Asus or Gigabyte?] AsRock z87 Extreme 4 ; Intel z87 So. 1150 8Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 DIMM [is this necessary? or can i go with for example ballistix sport] 1000Gb Seagate Desktop (7200rpm) HDD 250Gb Samsung 840 Evo series SSD Corsair Hydro Series H80i 750W Corsair CX Series modular cables and some dvd/cd rom drive What do you think about it? Also if you have some suggestions for a suitable case, below ~100€, that would be amazing, nothing fancy. Thanks for your help Moritz
  5. Hey guys! I'm planning on buying a new computer, partly for Prepar3d (v2.5, going to be upgraded). I was thinking about following components, as I'm still on a certain budget: - Intel i7 6700K - Asus Z170-K Mainboard - GeForce GTX 960 4GB - 250 GB Samsung SSD - 1 TB Hard Drive - 600W PSU - Water Cooling. Cost: €1100. My main concerns are the GPU and the mainboard. I want to play P3d with addons like the Aerosoft A318/319 or A2A GA Aircraft on high settings with at least 30 pfs, among that I will also use the PC for CAD work, video editing and music production. Therefor the question: Should I invest in like a GTX970 (which is even older than the 960) or even the Radeon RX 480? And is the mainboard capable of handling it all? Also: Is 600 Watts enough power for the system? Thanks in advance for your help! Kris
  6. Hey Guys, I need some advice and help on a new computer build to run FSX: SE on maximum graphics or close to it. Please look at the parts that I plan on using to build the computer below: CPU Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK ATX LGA1150 Memory G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 SSD Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" SSD Storage Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Video Card Asus Radeon R9 270X 2GB DirectCU II Case Corsair 760T Black ATX Full Tower Power Supply SeaSonic 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Optical Drive Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) Sound Card Asus Xonar D1 Wireless Network Adapter Asus PCE-N53 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1
  7. Just wondering if this computer will run FSX fine. Thanks for the help! -4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-4790 processor (8M Cache, up to 4.0 GHz) -8GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz (4GBx2) -NVIDIA GeForce GT 720 1GB DDR3 -Windows 8.1 (64Bit) -1TB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive 6.0 Gb/s I just realized that I put this post in the wrong forum! Sorry about that, this is my first post.
  8. Hey everyone. Just wanted to run these specs by Avsim users and get some input on the performance I can get out of these specs. i will be running FSX and P3D with aircraft such as the PMDG 737/777 as well as sceneries such as ORBX and FlyTampa. This is the hardware I'm planning to purchase for this system: i7 4790k (I most likely won't OC for the time being) Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO GeForce Gtx 960 2GB 8 GB DDR3 and a Corsair 600W power supply to run it all. Will this system perform well? I'm ok with 25-30 fps even with FSX/P3D not 100% maxed out. I also am restrained on the budget, as this system would cost me under $900 at the moment and I wold like to not go far over that.
  9. Hi There! I'm new here, but was advised by a fellow Flight pilot, HB1PC3, to join this website to ask for much needed help. As I am also posting to & to ask for the same advice, I have posted all the problematic information to a page within my own website, at: in the hope that someone out there in the virtual Flight skies can help me relaunch my game. Thanking you in anticipation of a solution! Paul J. Hopkins (aka Lordnum)
  10. Hi Guys, I want to run FSX with all the bells and whistles eg. PMDG NGX, T7 and scenery at good fps. I have compiled a parts list and was wondering if anyone can confirm how good it will be for FSX: ASUS 2G GTX770 GPU Asus Z87-A motherboard Samsung 840 EVO Series SATA3 120G SSD Seagate SATA3 1TB Hard Drive i7-4770K Corsair VS650 psu 8G Kit 1866 Patriot Viper Green Antec GX700 Gaming Case Any thoughts appreciated!
  11. Hi! My old computer gave up a few months ago and I have been saving up ever since. Ive decided to do the switch from FSX to P3D and would just like your guys opinion on the computer parts i'm planning to buy! ASUS ROG STRIX X299-E Gaming Motherboard MSI Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Armor OC Intel Core i7 7800X 3.5 Ghz 8.25MB Corsair Hydro H115i Kingston HyperX 32GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM Samsung 850 EVO SSD 500GB Seagate Firecuda 2TB 7200rpm 64MB EVGA GQ 750W Windows 10 This will cost quite a lot and would just like to know if you guys think this is sufficient? Will I have acceptable (>20fps) frames with PMDG 777, AS16 at Aerosoft LFPG for example? :) Thanks in advance!! Araxxos
  12. Hello, I am kinda new to the flightism community and just recently bought the PMDG 737-800 NGX and love the aircraft. I dont like to be right up on the cockpit window so I go back as zoom out as far as FSX will let me go. (Dont know what decimal that is to be exact just got FSX couple weeks ago) So I loaded the PMDG 737 NGX and realized that the MCP labels, FMC buttons, and Overhead button were blurry untill I zoomed in on it. I saw some videos and it seems like they dont have this problem. So I was wondering if there was anyway to fix this. Thank you so much. Happy Holidays! Xplosion
  13. I'm currently running 737NGX on this computer and I run NGX in some paid sceneries. Also I have rex override, too. I get framerate about 10 to 20 in CB with NGX. I'm wondering if I can run 777 on this computer. Thanks !! ​Intel core i3-3220T 2.80GHz Ram 8.00GB Intel HD Graphics with 1792 Graphic Memory. Windows 8.1 64Bit.
  14. Hi, I want to buy a new PC, because mine is quite old... I want to be able to play FSX: Steam Edition smoothly with nice graphics with following Add-Ons: A2A Cessna 182, Flight1 GTN 750 and high scenery settings and also if the sky is very cloudy. The Graphics Card should support a minimum of 3 Screens (Because I also need it for work). Is there anything good for around 1000€? I found the Chillblast Fusion Stratus 2 designed by Matt Davies: Or this one: However, are 8GB of RAM enough? Do you know other products? Thanks!

I am looking to upgrade my computer more spending about $300 My current specs are: Dell Inspiron 620 Intel i5 at 3.2 GHZ 8 GB DDR3Ram 1TB HDD EVGA Nvidia GTX 750TI 2GB Should i consider looking at a new motherboard that can hold two graphics cards due to that i am looking at multi monitor setup, and what would be better nvidia surround, or would a triplehead2go still alow the use of the other ports on the graphics card, what would be worth upgrading?
