I've been able to run every game up until now i comfortably.I actually thought when i built this PC that it would last me a while.
But i am getting a little lag with the latest flight sims.
Not so much in game since i lowered some settings'but in the loading screens.I also love the look of Lock on/Lomac and the videos look amazing'but i don't think my Current PC could cope with the highest settings.
So next week i am gonna make my a new PC.
This will be my 3rd one,
My budget will be £700'but would prefer to spend less if possible.
New Graphics Card
1 Gig of Ram
New Fan and CPU.
and these are the prices for parts i am using.
But if you know better ones then le me know.
So i can build the thing'but want i need is advice as to what to put in it.My PC is primarily for Games and i want it to be able to run FB and Lomac comfortable in 1024 x 768.I don't really understand all this FSB and Speeds of Memory stuff.
What MOBO do you have? I have an old KT7E (KT133E) that doesn't support Athlon XP's.
I now have an XP1800 T-Bred B running at 1.79 GHz on it.
That, along with a cheap GeForce4 MX440, 896 MB RAM @ 143 MHz (PC133) I am running MSFS2002 with full settings (had to set to custom to get 0 everything) I get about 30 FPS, consistantly, no jumps or anything. I run with 1024x768x32 resolution FULL SCREEN.
The beauty of the KT133 series is the better memory bandwidth with PC133 over other comparable MOBOs.
Oh, and with a WD 40gig 7200 RPM drive, it take 16 seconds to load FS2002, and 19 seconds after pressing 'Fly Now' for the game to be ready to fly. (I just tested it, with this window open)
Water cooling is for the weak. Get liquid nitrogen.
