My New Rig

My new machine (not Dell), W7 upgrade is coming soon.
I use a 24" Dell Ultrabright monitor, Logitech G5 mouse.

All slides are maxed out including the default AI, it's locked at 20fps (default) and doesn't stutter.

See FSX Screenshots for first flight shots.

Looks good....some of your hardware nearly mirrors mine, but it looks as if you ready to push your systems limits a bit. Time to break out the lab coat....

Yes, it was a powerhouse then but now a year and a half later it's still fine for FSX.
It's the only "game" I use it for so good enough.
You have the latest machine, hot-hot and ready for any game that comes along.
Enjoy!

Mine is 2 years old now and going strong.
That (yours) looks like a winner.
I would go for the larger power supply, figure for the future.
Enjoy your new machine.

Thanks for that RadarMan. I guess we’ve all got one eye on Flight.
