Ok so i have my system that lags FSX ... i am trying to run the pmdg and flight beam kphx (ngx) for the pmdg, and i lag so badly its making me wanna go back to fs2004 but i love the wing flex and the more realism it looks compare to FS2004 , So what can be causing the lag i have used venotube , used the inspector... idk what else can be the problem...
It's a notoriously CPU-bound game. That graphics card will be excellent for most other games, but Flight Simulator really needs a powerful CPU for the best results. Your best bet is to get a Z77 motherboard with DDR3 memory and a Core i5 processor (doesn't really matter which if you're not overclocking, 2500K or 3570K if you are).
Im more of an amd person and im looking at getting the 8120 or 8150 i believe came out and also the 8350 , but idk whats a good mobo for those cpus and fsx... another thing is i will be using it for other games ... but mainly fsx
Other games like 2k13 fifa 13 la noir battlefield 3 AC3 Batman AC
Games that aren't 100% GPU-bound will run significantly better on the i5 (you're looking at 20% faster at 1080p for the same price), but if you're sticking with AMD, the really important thing is to steer clear of the FX8100 models (and FX6100/FX4100). You want an FX8320 or FX8350 - those are the models using the improved architecture (Piledriver, some people refer to it as 'PD') and they're a lot more capable. If I was buying an AMD setup, I'd take a Piledriver 6-core over a Bulldozer 8-core any day.
Sorry mate - I don't know about AMD boards because I'd only consider/recommend Intel stuff at the moment. I think AMD's next range might be well-worth considering, but since I wouldn't recommend their current lineup over Intel, I've not bothered looking at the boards out there. Only general advice I can give is make sure you've got support for SATA 3, USB 3, PCI-E 3, all that new good stuff :-) And make sure it's suitable for SLI/Crossfire if that's something you're planning - you'll want at least two non-graphics slots between the PCI-E x16 slots your cards would be going into.
i have the same issue n i am thinking in going back to fs9 i love fsx looks better than fs9 but when i add mega sceneries like manhattan x with rex plus gex plus pmdg aircraft i lonly get about 14fps most of the times under 10fps n i have my cpu running at 4.2ghz here are my specs:
