Computer upgrade...


Recommended Posts

FSX or X-Plane? I run both w/ 2 GB ram Intel core 2 duo E6750 (2.66 ghz) and a 8800GT and it screams with X-Plane. I can't quite go to max with the sliders in FSX, but pretty close.

 

X-Plane and FSX will max out the CPU.....always (well one of the cores anyway) 2.4ghz is pretty solid though. Faster quad core CPU's start to get pricey.

 

The 8800GT's are getting harder to find now since they were replaced with the 9000 series last year but you can get the 9800GT's for $100 from Newegg.
