Help Me!

Hello Guys,

I also have my FSX Deluxe, but it doesn't work well. It doesn't work fluently.

My system:
Intel 4 HT 3GHz
ATI Radeon 9800 XL (128MB DD SDRAM ; 256Bit Memory Interface)
512 MB DDR 400 Mhz

FS 9 works very good. Do you think it would help me much, if I would upgrade my Ram to 2,5GB?
Or is it the graphiccard?
I want to buy a new one, but I still want to wait for DirectX 10.

What do aou think about upgrading RAM?

Both, do what you can do now and upgrade your card when you can.
Look in the Hardware Forum, there is a thread about DX 10 cards.

The ram will be needed for Vista also.

ok thx, but now i don't have the money for it and I have to wait fpr the directx 10 cards. But do you think, that upgrading ram would help me much?

I mean, will it improve the frame rate, if I upgrade the Ram? Now I have low settings and a framrate of about 12frames /sec. sometimes it brakes up for one second or longer.
Do you thing it will be much better with 2560MB RAM?

The major stutters are caused by memory content being swapped to and from the cache on your hard drive. The addition of RAM will definitely help with this. I have checked my system with 512 MBof RAM and found that 1 GB was in use when I was using FSX. This means that fully half ofr everything has been swapped out to the hard drive. That is very inefficient.
