I have Inno3D NVIDIA GTX470 graphic card. Today I installed Microsoft flight simulator X. I don't know which settings I have to put. My Resolution is 1920X1080.
I want to get 25-30 frames per second in aircrafts like iFLY boeing 737NG, PDMG boeing 747, Level D boeing 767 and more aircrafts and in Aerosoft sceneries with addons like Active sky, ground environment extreme, real environment extreme and more addons that improve the graphic.
This is my computer:
Processor : Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770
MotherBoard : Gigabyte GA-X48-DS5
Memory : OCZ 2GB RAM 1066MHZ
Video Card : Inno3D Nvidia Geforce GTX470
Hard Disk : Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB
Hard Disk 2 : HP simple save 1TB
Monitor : LG TV 37 INCH FULL HD 37LG55FR
Case : Thermaltake Mozart VC4000SNS HTPC
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
I know I have to add more memory of ram. I will do it.
I don't need fraps because in the game when you fly you can see the Frames per second and sometimes the Frames per second are 25-30 but sometime there are 15-20 frames.
I'm building a config to play mainly FSX with the add-ons like, Real Environment Xtreme 2.0, Shockwave - 3D Lights Redux, FSX Booster Version 2.9, Aerosoft MyTraffic 2010, Ultimate Airport Environment X...
Pretty much the boost FSX and have good traffics. I have a Samsung TV 40'' (1920x1080) and want to make it the main screen and maybe in the future run some of the gauges in another screen.
I'm looking for a "i5-2500 - 3.3ghz" and a "EVGA GTS450 1024MB", 4Gb RAM but not sure if it will hold high/ultra high graphical settings on FSX.
I've been reading lately and seems that GTS450 is not a good choice, maybe a "EVGA GTX460 1GB Superclocked", which is still in my budget. Am I asking too much for such configuration? 6 Gb RAM will make a better result?
