Tags: Graphics Cards Computer Graphics Last response: April 23, 2012 8:11 PM in Graphics & Displays Share tomol April 23, 2012 7:31:18 PM Hi, so I'm a flight simulator enthusiast and this is what I want out of the game; To run on 3 screens, have at least 20-25fps , be able to install add-ons that will run seamlessly, be able to max out the graphics. So I have been looking at computer components and for the new computer this is what I am thinking; -CPU - Intel Core i7-2600K (3.4GHz, 8MB Cache) -Motherboard - Asus P8Z77-V LX: USB 3.0 SAATA 6GBs, ATI CrossfireX -RAM - 16GB KINGSTON HYPER-X GENESIS DUAL-DDR3 1600MHz -GPU - 2x 1GB AMD RADEON HD6790 - Hard Drive - 500GB 3.5" SATA-3 6GB/s -Power supply - CORSAIR 650W Enthusiast Series TX650 V2-80 -CPU cooling - Standard intel cooler Including all standard sound cards and network facilities, Will all of this be compatible? and will it run the game how I want it? Thanks for the help guys much appreciated! Ps. Been researching more and ive found that maybe 2 NVIDIA cards would be better in SLI mode as the clouds for the AMD cards dont work in fsx what you think and which cards?

I would say 2x GTX 480, or 580's if you can afford them. Everything else is fine I would say. tomol April 23, 2012 7:42:10 PM Yeah sorry forgot about having to change the motherboard, however I think the 480 or 580's are too expensive what about 2x 550Ti in SLI mode?

Thent tomol April 23, 2012 8:07:21 PM 2 x 560Ti in SLI will supply me with what I need? also I've been reading that SLI doesn't work with FSX or something is this true as I dont wanna waste my money thently a b U Graphics card April 23, 2012 8:11:17 PM It is somewhat true FSX gets more power from very fast processors. I would suggest you go to the some FSX forums and see what works best for folks then come back here and we can give you help from there. Thent Can't find your answer ? Ask !
