  1. FS2004 and FSX for that matter are more dependent on CPU power than graphics perofrmance.

    Starting with the CPU - quad core is a must - after that any mid / high range video card will be fine.

    People often go for a mega bucks system for Flight Sim - but in truth a frame rate of 25 FPS is ideal andy higher is a bonus. Dont forget Flight Sims (non combat) are all about slow graceful movement - when was thr last time you saw a 747 doing barrel rolls etc ?

    How much do you intend to spend ?
  2. i havea budget of 1000 euros, yeah more then 30 i don't use too on my core duo right now (its stable to , but soemtimes when i reocrd nthe frames go down to 1 frrame smt.! )
  3. FSX did not initially support multi-core. This was added later. Are you absolutely sure that the earlier FS2004 had multi-core support added?
  4. i think yes, cus an friend paly sit with an 6 core

    And it uses more than 33.33% of his CPU power?

    If it doesn't use more than 33.3333% of the CPU, than it is not using more than 2 CPU cores. Running only two cores, the 980X would be the fastest dual core processor.
  8. ok thanks a lot
