wee = little

Your shots are amazing, and if Direct X 10 manages to improve that even more then wow.

We have one party that has the elephant for its symbol. The other one uses a donkey. We're pretty much screwed either way. Rolling Eyes

Great shots there GM, but sadly number 4 has confirmed that the airstrips do come from a roll. Only hope they are stuck/fixed securely. Wouldn't like one to roll up, in the middle of a crosswind landing. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Shame about CG's Elephants, I heard of a small girl that lost her sheep, but a grown man losing his Elephants. Laughing Laughing Laughing

very nice pics, but as i feared your vid card is a nvidea FX6800 512mb, sadly mine is the FX5500 256MB, might not get those prety pictures on mine once i get FSX.

Awesome shots GM. What kind of frame rates were you getting on those settings - was it a smooth ride? And do you think that just maybe you could... use your awesome machine to take some screens of Atlanta/Hartsfield Intl. Maybe? Blush

Its not a super machine ryane.Maybe a middle one but definitely not a super.Since its already too late in my Time Zone i promise your shots for tomorrow.I also didn't check the FPS(I will never do it even to FS9 Love )But i ll check it too tomorrow.My guess is that it is not going to be an impressive number...We shall see though. Wink

Thanks for you comments. Wink

Great shots, GM, so glad to see you've finally gotten it!! Look forward to seeing many more from you.

The first thing that struck me was not having f1 view also. You'll get used to it fairly quickly, though.

Cool

In addition to being very pleasant to view, GM's screen shots will have the effect of quieting the chorus that blames FSX for the inadequacies of their computers. Laughing

If you could run FSX with such detail on your current rig, I'm getting the same video card you're using. Did you go for the fanless Quiet Heatsink model or the one with the built-in fan? How much did you spend for that GFX card by the way?

Pro Member Chief Captain
Greekman72 Chief Captain

This is my GFX Arrow

I bought it before 4months in the price of 185euros(Greece)

Keep on mind that my shots are editing.I resize them(800x600) and i increase the sharpenes about 30-40% from the original one.Increasing the sharpness and rezising brings better result to a screenshot.

Check the following example. Arrow

Original(Sorry for the size)

Editing(Resizing-Sharpness Increasing)

Also you have to count the fact that ,with this system, in high detail areas, as big cities or busy airports, i have some kind of freezing in smooth runnning with Autogen to High.

Thanks! 'Coz I'm currently in the process of building a new rig and I don't wanna waste my money on a lousy graphics card. The new 8800 DX10 Series GFX cards are good but they're well-beyond my budget.

Another ASUS GFX card I'm considering is this:

By the way, what's your average framerate on FSX with your rig?[/url]

Pro Member Chief Captain
Greekman72 Chief Captain

Not too much...About 13-17 fps which dramatically decreasing to 8-10 in high density areas.

As a conlusion is that my Set-Up is at the limits if you want to have your Slidders to MAX. I already plan my upgrade but not before spring time.

Incredible pictures ppl... I'm jealus, thats why im upgrading:P Thumbs Up!

Im ready to upgrade my system, Im only thinking of fixing the video card, and upgrade from 1gb ram, to 2gb...

I allready have amd 64 dual-core, and dont have to upgrade that.

But i just wants some help for what video card to choose!

Maximum price would be around $350

TY for all comments being posted back

Lets do a comparison. This is proof that good graphics card are a vital part of performance and looks. I use to get 5 to 12 FPS. Now I get 10 to 39 fps.
My FSX with an Intel 64mb card.

And FSX with my new ATI 9250 256mb card

First one is in Santa Cruz, Bolivia
2nd one is in Friday Harbor, Washington

Very Happy Autstanding!

I must say I have a small rig 512; Nvidia GEForce 5600 XT updated! And I don't get near this kinds of graphics. On the contrary I get a lot of jumpy FPS and I am getting tired of adjusting setting and not actually flying Confused I've installed twice already defraged, and defraged; My system keeps saying it doesn't need to and it stops after the analysis.

But getting back to this shots, which was the original point they're simply FANTASTIC Very Happy
