  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. Hi, I've been doing quite a lot of research regarding best PC specs. for running P3D v3. I'm particularly unsure about the best CPU to be using. I have already found out the 4790k performs better under single core loads compared to the 6700k, is this true? Considering that P3D and FSX generally use a single core, I assumed that the 4790k would be the CPU to go for... However after doing some more research about the 6700k, it appears it is more efficient, uses less power... Unless I've missed any forum posts similar to this (apologies if I have), I can't seem to find any solid evidence about which of the two is best, specifically for P3D. Or is there another CPU that is best? Budget isn't an issue... Thanks for help Jonathan
  3. Hello everyone. I plan to build a new gaming pc for P3D, however i am extremely stuck in trying to find the right specs. I do not wish to spend anything over 450 pounds ($673) for my CPU and GPU, yet i am unsure which i should spend more on. I am looking for 30 fps at most airports with addon scenery. Does anybody know which is more important and / or has any specs recommendations? Yours Sincerely, Kamil Nasser
  4. Would these computer specs work well in fsx (thinking of building a custom pc) Intel i7 3770K (3.5 Ghz 3.9 Ghz Boost) Asus P8P67 Deluxe Motherboard EVGA 760Ti 2 gb Graphics card 200gb SSD 8GB DDR3 Memory 850 Watt Power Supply I am still deciding on a case, any recommendations are welcome
  5. I want to start flight simulator x and getting addons like GEX, REX, UTX Canada and wondering if my pc would run all those on like high graphics: flying stuff like vrs superbug and a boeing Specs: i7-3770 CPU 3.40ghz gtx 660 8gb ram windows 7 64-bit Hotas warthog g27 Also if there are any target profiles for hotas warthog for fsx would be appreciate also anyway i can get my g27 pedals as rudder i use them for dcs but cant figure it out for fsx and if u recommend what i start flying first like go from a small civilian aircraft like a cessna to what? Sorry for all the questions i just want to know so much and i play alot of dcs just want to try to get into civilian flying also so if i like it i will be getting a saitek yoke system. for REX what do i get for my system rex essentials plus with overdrive or just rex essentials plus? what is difference? Add me on steam if u would like to tell me in a chat or if u are confused by my post: steam: Zombiescu (the one with f-18 picture)
  6. 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
  7. Hi fellow simmers :smile: I am new to forums so don't really know if i am posting this in the correct place or not so please let me know. I'm wondering if any of you can help me in finding out what kind of graphics card/hardware i need in order to achieve a really good realistic flight simulator... I've been looking online recently and have seen that people have got extremely good graphics even when at mega airports I struggle at the moment to get good FPS when at LHR (EGLL) even when my setting are extremely low. I have updated my PC over the past couple of years but it still isn't great, what do you guys think i should look at purchasing next? My current specs are: Ram: 4.00GB AMD FX -4100 Quad Core Processor 3.60GHz 64 Bit Operating System NVIDIA GeForce GT640 Any ideas on what i can change so that i can get ultra realism? p.s im kinda looking for this kind of level: thanks for the help in advance !! :smile:
  8. 40 years old and I finally have my first 1st Gaming PC after years of console gaming. Even after reading forums and watching YouTube videos I'm struggling on what settings I should be using and where (NVIDIA Control Panel, in-game, etc) to maximize the quality/graphics in game but also have useable performance. I was hoping some of you more experienced simmers and PC enthusiasts wouldn't mind giving me some advice or guidance on where to start and what to try. For starters, with the specs below should I even be trying to play at 1440p? Should I be focusing on 1080p and go max settings there and wait for 1440p until I upgrade to say a 3090? SPECS: Intel i-5 12400F MSI RTX 3050 Aero ITX 8GB 16GB T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4 3200hz (16-20-20-40) 2x8GB ASUS Prime B660M-A D4 1TB M.2 (Windows & MSFS on same drive) I'm already planning on buying 2 more 8GB sticks of RAM so I have 32GB total by the way. Just having issues finding the same mhz and timing in the same color currently. Thanks in advance!
  9. Has anyone loaded MSFS onto it's own dedicated drive? Is there much benefit or do files get loaded all over the PC anyway? Just thinking of protecting space my my main drive. My second is for photos, movies etc so don't want to use that. What size would work? Do you need a full 1TB or would 500GB be enough for sometime? I
  10. Hello guys, so the time has come and I need a new computer. I kind of know what's good and what's not, but not if the parts will work well together. I don't know if I will overclock, it really depends how fsx is running and what you guys can recommend. Also I have no idea of motherboards, what ram or cooler to take. What I know, is that my budget is at around ~1000€. And the parts I would like to have in it are : I7-4770k Nvidia GTX 770 1 TB harddrive for other stuff and a 250gb ssd for fsx Even those parts can be changed if you advise me to, I'm kind of a noob when it comes to pc parts right now. Thanks for you help, I appreciate it!! Greets from Germany!
  11. I can't ever finish flight because my computer can't handle it anymore and crashes after 2 hours. I only run PMDG 737 ngx as an addon for fsx nothing else. Why can't my PC survive for more than 2 hours of FSX? How can I upgrade my computer so it can run for long hauls(15 hours) once I get the PMDG 777-300? My PC specs: GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7570 RAM: 8 GB CPU: Intel i5 3570K @3.40 GHZ System type: 64 Bit operating system on a windows 8 Number of processor cores: 4 Storage: 1861 GB (1739 GB free, barely anything) My PC rating in system settings(base score): 5.9 Processor: 7.8 Ram: 7.8 Graphics: 6.7 Gaming Graphics: 6.7 Primary hard disk: 5.9 PC SPECS IN MORE DETAILED VIEW: System Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard Model h8-1427 Total amount of system memory 8.00 GB RAM System type 64-bit operating system Number of processor cores 4 Storage Total size of hard disk(s) 1861 GB Disk partition (C:) 1739 GB Free (1841 GB Total) Disk partition (D:) 3 GB Free (21 GB Total) Media drive (I:) CD/DVD Graphics Display adapter type AMD Radeon HD 7570 Total available graphics memory 5857 MB Dedicated graphics memory 2048 MB Dedicated system memory 0 MB Shared system memory 3809 MB Display adapter driver version 8.981.0.0 Primary monitor resolution 1920x1080 DirectX version DirectX 11 or better
  12. Hi there, I'm planning on upgrading my PC but I have developed some un-certainty as to whether the setup will run together. First are my current specs the second are the specs I'm planning on achieving; Current Setup; Intel i3-2120 @3.30GHz 8GB RAM (no idea what brand!) Asus P8H61-MX MOBO 300W PSU (I believe it is anyway!) Intel HD 2000 Graphics (inbuilt GPU thingy!) Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit The specs I'm hoping to achieve; Intel i3-2120 @3.30GHz 8GB RAM (keeping the same RAM) Asus P8H61-MX MOBO (keeping same MOBO to!) CoolerMaster 650Watt GX Bronze Gaming PSU (this is powersupply some guy on youtube had with same MOBO as me) Nvidia GTX560 Ti 1GB Graphics Card Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit What I'm wondering is; Will the 2nd Setup work together fine?, this is more of a tech nerd post than an FSX post, at least I hope it is I'm hoping FSX will run pretty smooth on the new setup all being well if it works! I'm kinda hoping to avoid upgrading the processor as they can be quite pricey and kinda figured it would be cheaper to get a grahics card instead! Also if anyone has information about FSX running the GTX 560 Ti with the i3-2120 please let me know, I haven't been able to find any information about this setup for FSX on the internet so if anyone can spread light I would greatly appreciate it! Oh, I'm also planning on playing other PC games on this setup such as Battlefield 3 and GTA IV, does anyone know if those will run nicely on the new setup? The pics are what I'm dreaming to acheive!!!
  13. 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
  14. This is my first post here. Recently, my flight sim PC died on me. I have narrowed down the cause to the CPU, Motherboard and GPU, I will be taking the RAM and PSU in for testing soon after my own tests (Which i have already done. Here is my goal: I plan to run P3D v3 on this new rig while getting roughly +40 FPS and still have a nice looking sim. I will be running the PMDG 777, Aerosoft A320 (And a330 whenever it gets released), Active Sky Next, FlyTampa Sydney, ORBX Australia, ORBX Ireland, PrecipitFX, REX Soft Clouds, and some more scenery. Here are the specs that i currently have planned: Intel Core i5 4690k Devils Canyon 3.5GHZ Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 4GB GDDR5 ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Crucial BX100 500GB SSD Windows 10 I have heard stories about people having higher specs and getting horrid performance, i'm paranoid i'll be like them. So would this be good enough to run P3D with those addons and what should i have my settings set to to get the best performance and best look?
  15. 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.
  16. Hi All, I have been stopping myself to post a message in the forum hoping I could do something about my framerate in FSX by myself but I have not managed to do that. So here I am ! Here are my specs : I7 930 overclocked to 4ghz. 12GB ram GTX 480 (Asus). ASUS P6TX58 Addons : PMDG 737 (obviously ) REX overdrive (no essentials) Active Sky 2012 ORBX YMML (for the test) ENB Series (I have issue with that one. I can fly using it but I get black screen when I access the menu/use replay etc.. especially when I fly in high details area/by night or other stressing situation for the computer) FPS Limiter (same as above, I suspect it's coming from the d9d3.dll and my graphic card, they don't like each other so I tend to deactive both of them). I deleted the FSX.cfg and use the online tool (Venetubo) and that's about it. I've also used Nvidia inspector and use the 4S configuration. (for anti aliasing and anisotropic selected in FSX, framerate unlimited) Frame rate at YMML on active runway : 15-18fps. Autogen : normal My first question is : is that a common framerate ? If yes, well too bad for me I might need another machine. if no, is there anyone with pretty much the same config that could share some tips with me ? I love this plane and would like to enjoy it as much as it deserves it. That would be much appreciated. Thank you and let me know if you need more info. Sylvain.
  17. 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: https://chillblast.com/chillblast-fusion-stratus-2-flight-sim-pc-designed-by-matt-davies.html Or this one: http://www.mifcom.de/flightmaster-foxtrot-id4935 However, are 8GB of RAM enough? Do you know other products? Thanks!
  18. Hello everybody, my birthday is coming soon and my parents are going to get me P3D v4. P3D v4 costs a lot of money so before they do I would like to get some information on if and how well I can run P3D v4. Here are my computer specs: - Intel i7 6700HQ @ 3.4 Ghz (In turbo frequency) - Nvidia GTX960M (4GB) - 8 GB DDR4 RAM - Windows 10 Home 64-bit What I am planning to use with P3D v4: - ORBX FTX Global - REX Soft Clouds/Texture Direct - Active Sky Next - Maybe the PMDG 737 I am currently using FSX with all the things listed above and in the PMDG 737 I get about 18 - 26 fps. Without the PMDG 737 I get a pretty steady 30 FPS (It's also locked to 30). How well do you think my system would run P3D v4 with the listed specs and Addons? Regards, Devear

Ok guys so after wanting to play flight simulator or prepar3d with no hiccups and all the bells and whistles like ngx 737 etc and scenery addons so my girlfriend today after complaining about my csgo experience with my horrendous 5 year old laptop she has went and pulled it out the bag for me the absolute angel! She's spend around £1800 on a configured gaming pc with the specs as follows I7-7700K at 4.2GHz but wanting to over clock (corsair H45 liquid cooling 120mm) 256GB Sandisk X400 Sata III Gaming SSD 2TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64M Cache 7200rpm Hard Drive (Single Hard Drive) (1x8GB) DDR4/3200mhz Dual Channel Memory Corsair Vengence with heat spreader MSI Z270-A PRO INTEL Z270 Chipset, ATX Mainboard Corsair 600 Watts CX600 MSI GeForce® GTX 1080 8GB Video Card I am also wanting to run on two 1080p monitors at the moment so please could anyone and everyone help me out with how to overclock and how much I should over clock by and just if all of these specs are good just because she has already ordered it and it comes Monday so please any info on how to get the best out of the system and even configs etc just anything guys!
  22. 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? I have the following payware aircraft PMDG 737,777 Aerosoft Airbus X Extended And use the following weather addons REX4Texture Direct, and ASN I currently get 25-40 FPS
  23. Hello, Before buying a new computer for FSX, I wanted to ask if the i5-2500k and the Gtx 560 are good enough to get approximately 20 frames/second in the pmdg 777 on an addon airport like Aerosoft EDDB or any other airport in UK2000. I know tweaks are necessarily and I will surely overclock my cpu to at least 4.2 ghz. Every comment is appreciated !
