I wouldent trust that just yet, ebgames usually just makes a guess of what the release date and price is.

Nice find RM 👍 that gives us something to look forward to. When we get an official release date from MS, I'll know to book that day off work. 🙄

That's great! Should have my Dual-Core up and running by then, probably using fs9 on it, and then not wanting fsx, course I am joking.. Got it all built, just waiting for the cpu, keep bidding on eBay, just a matter of time. Think I'll have to bid higher. I want an AMD 64 X2 +4400, already have 4Gb of DDR2.

$50 is a verey good price, considering fs9 was £50 when it fisrt came out!

I'll have to bump up my computer fist though!

I did my research on dual core and FS9 and It was not a positive outlook. If you spend a little time on the reading on it (google it) you will find some bad threads on it as FS9 is not able to run Dual Core properly. Crying or Very sad but maybe FSx will be able to...only time will tell.

So "P.C.Pilot" Magazine, latest issue is wrong then? A five page test of several computers, using varios Flying Sims, including fs9, and they all performed a lot better using Dual-Core. I've been building computers for a few years now, think you should do a bit more research.

Without a doubt it will be OK, if I am correct in my thinking.
Vista, directX10, and fsX are being written for 64 bit;
AMD has had 64x2 dual cores for a while now;
Everything should be all good.

I know my plan is to buy the latest AMD64 dual-core when
both Vista and fsX are properly released.

(not that I won't buy fsX for my current system when its
released) 🙄

Well I have almost everything for the build,ASUS Mobo, DDR2, HDs (SATA II 300Gb each), DVD burner, floppy, case, PSU(Hiper 580), last but not least to get is the cpu, and cooler. I'm hoping to get a AMD X2 +4400, but the price is holding up the final purchase, hoping to get one on eBay soon. Forgot have graphics card also, 7900 GTX sli. compat, get another when poss.

Already have two spare monitors.

Hi Guys,
I just purchased my pre-order boxed FSX at amazon.com for &69.99 so am just sitting here and pacing the floors 😂 i saw simshack.com has it for 91.08 a little to high for this budget. So we will see....anxiously waiting.

http://www.alienware.com/ used to be the best, and Falcon the most expensive but with Dell-Hell buying Alien that makes them (at best) a second rate gameing manufacturer.

Does Falcon have their tech support out-sourced or is it based here and Canada.

I'm using an Alienware(AW) Area 51 and I wouldn't recommend AW. According to the website for Falcon Northwest, there tech support is in the US. AW's is from somewhere in South America. Widow PC is another contender www.widowpc.com. Both are very expensive. 🙂

Thanks for that one. I looked at http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/ , good prices and hardware but support is in India.

Is it 50 pounds or 50 dollars? I remember buying FS2004 in the US for $55 limited edition.

Pro Member Chief Captain
pilotwannabe Chief Captain

From SimShack it is 50 Pounds...from EBgames it 50 Dollars.
Therefore it is cheaper from EBgames 😉

Is FSX a quick cover up for a FS2006 or it has no relation at all.

Pro Member Chief Captain
Jonathan (99jolegg) Chief Captain

They are the same thing - but the X symbolises 10 (its the tenth version) as it is the roman numeral. FSX has a bit more of a ring to it 😉

Guest

if i bye fsx at amazon could spend about 50£.
and what is that it says dvd-room.is the same like cd-room 😕

Pro Member Chief Captain
CRJCapt Chief Captain

In order to use/play a DVD you have to have a DVD-ROM or DVD writer drive installed in your computer. You will not be able to utilize a program that only comes on DVD if you only have a CD drive. FSX will be on DVD disks so you will need a DVD-ROM drive or a DVD writer to use FSX. 🙂

Well, I wouldn`t complain about the price of FSX being lower... and I don't know why fs'02 was more expinsive. And I am very exited about it being released in October, the 19th is my birthday! A late present I guess.... 😉

Well, I guess an early birthday present, October 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (birthday October 19)

636 MB is the size of the demo, not the final release. 14 GB is the amount of space you will need to install FSX when it is released.

That's right, and 16Gb for Vista without anything else, at least that's what it uses on my spare HD. Incidentally FSX Demo does not run very well on Vista Beta 2, the first demo flight runs, but soon as you try to fly it locks up.

And FS9 doesn't like Vista either so far!

Not good for me if FSX will need 14 gig. i am dead y Lap only has 15 gig. Hard drive, need to get a new one... 😕 😞 Crying or Very sad Mad 😳

I guess I am the "BOLD" one of the group. I just picked up an ALIENWARE Aurora M9700 AMD Turion 64 ML44 2.4ghz, 800MHz fsb, 1GB SO-DIMM 400MHz, and SLI 256MB NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GS (only on one card right now!). I am running the demo on my Laptop, and aside from the bugs and errors with the demo, IT KICKS @$$ !!! The only problem -- I dont know how to fly without LAG !!! 🙄 I am working on the wife for 3GB more of RAM and maybe, just maybe that second video card.... but when you spend 3,000 on a laptop -- Explaining to the wife why she cant have a 1CT ring becomes harder and harder.... but hey - It is what it is !!!

Eeek, all the propellors are turning the same way. Isn't that going to make the plane very difficult to fly?
