Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'd like to have some advices on how will my next computer run FSX. Here's the configuration:
Dell Studio XPS 8000
Intel Core i7-860 (8 Mo cache, 2.80 Ghz)
Nvidia DeForce GTX260 1792 Mo GDDR3
Sata HD 1 To 7200 16 Mo cache
Windows 7 64 bit
Bicanal memory SDRAM DDR3 1066Mhz 8Go 4 DIMMs
Take it a little easy on the AI (cars-boats) and don't max out the autogen and you should be able to run all the rest full out.
If you want to max out the autogen (it's nice) then try some tweaks.
Your system is close to mine (see hardware forum) and my autogen is maxed out.
Try them all full out and cap the FPS at 20, see how that works and if you get any stuttering. Experiment.
