I might be upgrading all the parts in my computer besides the motherboard, case and DVD drive sometime in the next couple months. I'm currently thinking of getting the following components:

AMD Phenom II 940 (3.0 GHz quad core)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285
4 or 8 GB DDR2 1066 (dunno which brand or amount for that matter)
Seagate 500 GB Barracuda 7200.12 (ST3500418AS)
some > 550 watt power supply

My current specs are:

AMD Phenom 9850 (2.5 GHz quad core)
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 640 mb
4 GB Corsair CM2X1024-6400
Maxtor DiamondMax 21 500 GB (STM3500630AS)
ASUS M3A-HD/HDMI (not planning on upgrading this)
some Antec 500 watt power supply

Does anyone with similar specs (to the upgrade) have anything to say about the performance of FSX (well, and of the computer in general)? Any comments, opinions or suggestions?

for me lag was the worst so going to 8 gb ram really helped

i dont know much bout technical stuff, have good friends working in a comp shop lol , a decent proccesor should make a real diff

defo go for the upgrades though it can only be good for you.
