FSX well put any system on its knees if you max it out. even the sandy bridge E cpu's are not enough

Just updated and for some reason it's still showing as the older driver on catalist but it says new driver installed succefylly however on fsx with default scenery and Rex utx and the default muale plane getting around 37 fps does this sound about right

That just depends is it playable? Have you installed Service pack 2 yet? The overclock will help you the most though.

Will overclocking provide any Benafit to fsx and I know I keep reporting this but what fps should I roughly expect with this setup at all sliders full and 30 percent ai thank you everyone :pt1cable:

Overclocking will help the most you almost have to to get good performance out of FSX and Not sure what you should get it more what you "can" get set it up put all sliders to max watch the slide show and slowly bring the sliders down till it plays like you like it... As far as anything I have read there is no computer that can max this game out with full sliders 100 AI traffic and all I might be wrong but I have seen people playing on stupid awesome rigs and can't play on full... You will just have to tinker this is not a game you can say "I should get xx frames per second" as there are som many tweeks to be done. Overclock for sure first then get to tweeking the config files ect.
