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...


I have

CPU:amd phenom quad core 9650

Video Card: EVGA 670 FTW

HDD: 2TB

Windows 7

6GBS of ram DDR2

Motherboard http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M3A78EM/

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).

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.

Definitely. I've not seen the FX8320 benchmarked against the FX8350 but there's not gonna be a lot of difference. It'll still be a better option than the Bulldozer model.

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.
