Hi,
Just wanted to ask you guys something.

How much of a difference will it make to replace my current Athlon X2 215 with a Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition?
Will i see much of a difference in flight simulator?
And Is it worth it? UK-Price £120.04

Thanks

+1 FSX is a very CPU dependent game. What is the rest of your system?

Hmmm...your video card is fairly poor aswell. You might wan to consider a CPU and video card when 6xxx comes out. But for now, yes, FSX is very CPU dependant, so any overclocking, unlocking, or upgrade to the CPU would be noticed.
