FSX versus System Spec - any benchmarks?

Pro Member Trainee

Right, I know that some people are pulling their hair out a bit with the "will my system run FSX......?" so I won't ask that question. Ill re-phrase it to; does anybody know where I can find a performance comparison of FSX on any given system?"

Take it as I already know the minimum specs as stated by microsoft and that given a bit of trading you can get FSX to run reaonably well on a moderate spec. So what is an ideal spec? Ideal in the sense of it accomodating the most commons add-ons such as ai traffic, scenery and terrain mesh etc etc etc..!

You see I've always been about 4 years behind most people as that's where my computer spec keeps me - I have only just pushed FS9 up to near the max but I know I'm settling for second best.

Can I dare ask this; if I told you I was looking at the following to purchase would you, at a glance, see it as an FSX spec or not (and I mean sliders all up)?

* Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
* Intel Core i5 750 Processor
* 8192MB Corsair DDR III Memory
* 1500GB SATA II Seagate Ultra Fast Hard Disk Space
* NEC 7200 Multi Format DVD/CD ReWriter
* TWO ATI Radeon 5750 1024MB PCI Express Graphics Cards (2048MB Crossfire)
* 5.1 High Definition Surround Sound
* Asus Deluxe Motherboard
* Multi Format Memory Card Reader
* 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN
* 12 x USB2 Ports
* Firewire
* 22” Widescreen Full HD TFT
* Logitech Wireless Multimedia Keyboard
* Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse
* Logitech X530 5.1 Speaker System

If you are sick of reading these kinds of please accept my apologies while you move on to one more interesting.

Here, I'm running FSX full out with no added AI.
I keep it locked at 20 fps and it never drops.

I, on the other hand, am running FSX full out with Real Enviroment Xtreme, Ultimate Terrain X, and World of Ai aircraft. I also keep mines locked at 20 fps and I don't have any issues in Free Flight....


Well...I am still working on that!!! Embarassed
