will these specs run fsx with efficient enjoyable fps?

I know the big issue is fps and i know these specs can run fsx i just wanted to know if i will be able to experience a good frame rate and run the game pretty fast.

Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
Intel Core 2 Duo processor E6700 (2.66GHz)
4GB DDR2-667MHz dual channel SDRAM (4x1024)
500GB RAID 0 @ 7200RPM (2 x 250GB SATA HDDs)
640MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS Direct X 10

Thanks in advance for anyone who replies. I know alot of people post this message but no one seems to have a problem with it so i figured id ask it as well. And yes, i would run that program that lets me know how my pc will run fsx, but i wont have it for a couple weeks in order to run the program on it.

you should buy 2 of these and bridge them together

640MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS Direct X 10

get this processor instead

Intel Core 2 Quad processor QX6800

there is a write up on this processor somewhere, it says this processor is really good with FSX.

yea i know hence i said difference of ghz and technologies - technologies being ones dual core and one is quad core. i cant afford that upgrade though so it dont matter im already at the top end of my budget for this thing.

The Vista Ultimate is a rip-off unless you paln on doing bussiness networking and things like that. Save money and get home premium. Plus if you are spending that much you don't have to get dual 640's but at least get a 756mb.

yea i know vista ultimate is not worth it but it was free so i got it for the 64 bit and the 640 mb was the highest option i was kinda suprised they didnt have 768's though idc as long as i can fly with decent graphics

Thats like saying... "A Ferrari Enzo and a Ford Probe are the same thing, except the speed, style, performance, handling characteristcs, fuel efficiency, insurance rates, rim size, etc......."

You get it? One has double the thread capability, one does not. 4MBx2 cache vs 2MB x 2, etc... The Quad Core does use more watts, but with the proper power supply, who cares.

n/m that just came out wrong im assuming i can run fsx just not with super fps

I am getting over 54fps in urban areas with all sliders for scenery maxed out, and water at 2.x medium. I hit over 80 fps in rural or forest area ...

I am using E6300 Core 2 Duo overclocked to 3.43ghz. Video card is Nvidia 7600GTKO at factory clock, 2gig of DDR2-800mhz oc'd to 1ghz, on Windows Vista Home Premium. Moral? A Core2Duo of any 6 series will perform very well. I would stay away from 4000 series versions.

How can that be possible... Overclocking your processor doesn't compare to a QX6700 and for me there was minimal difference, and all the sliders in scenery were maxed out for me or nearly, except water like yours. I ran it just today on my new comp, QX6700, 2gigs 800Mhz, xp pro, 8800gtx and a 1kilowatt psu... So... wtf? That just can't be possible..

I have posted screenshots as well as video... its possible and proven. My system is so tuned, i dont dare touch it. I will be adding 2gig more ram, but its running awesome...

After SP1 you should get that performance as well... some tests show that quad cores perform less than expected.

Trust me, from when i first ran fsx at 8fps, i set out on a mission. And succeeded.

PS, no tweaks have been implemented, all factory configuration and textures.

Incorrect I'm afraid. SLi has no effect on FSX what-so-ever. It wasn't designed to take advantage of dual graphics cards as far as I know. I've tried it, and I experienced no performance increase at all.

I havent even heard if SP1 is supposed to fix that... will be interesting to see.
