Solved Worth upgrading from 9800GTX+? Tags: Performance Nvidia Graphics Last response: August 22, 2013 7:55 PM in Graphics & Displays Share lavrentis August 22, 2013 7:27:18 PM Hello, I have a Nvidia 512MB 9800GTX+ in my machine and I want to run FSX better. It does run stable at 25fps+ but I would like to get this higher as it is choppy sometimes. I was thinking of the GTX480 as that seems reasonably priced. Do you think I will see a performance increase, is it worth a purchase? Other specs are(it's an old PC) OC Core2Duo e4500 2.8ghz, 4GB 940mhz More about : worth upgrading 9800gtx pezonator August 22, 2013 7:49:39 PM Dude..... Going from a 9800GTX to a GTX 480 is like....massive! But why the 480? It big and power hungry. What about something with better performance like a GTX 660 which is fairly cheap. m 0 l Best solution aevm a b Î Nvidia August 22, 2013 7:55:35 PM IIRC FSX works better on quad-core CPUs than on dual cores. Think about a MB/CPU upgrade. Adding more RAM could reduce the choppiness too. You need a 64-bit Windows to take advantage of more than 4 GB of RAM. The GTX 480 is several times faster than what you have (http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2011-gaming-graphics...), but there are better options now, e.g. the GTX 770. If you do buy the GTX 480, you need a PSU with at least 550W. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Worth upgrading from 9800gtx (not the "+" model) to gtx260 core 216?
