I can understand if you dont want to do a complete system overhaul but you should at least get yourself a dual core cpu, they are so cheap now and it would do wonders for flight sim x.

I don't have any performance issues with FSX. I get a solid 23-27fps, locked at 27.

This scene is running at 23fps with very dense autogen, though I normally use dense autogen.

Trust me, while you may be happy with your current FPS you are still missing a nice boost in performance that dual core offers over single core in Flight Sim X. The latest patch made a huge difference for dual core users.

After upgrading to the service pack 1 which is optimized for dual core my FPS with everything maxed completely out went from the high teens and 20's to high 30's and 50's.

Yeah I know. I'm getting a E6850 when I feel like it, but not now.

Such awesome "golden hour" lighting in this game, and the bump mapping is totally sweet. I had to laugh at some dude on amazon.com who rated FSX with one star becuase "The planes are ugly". lol

Why? so you can compare ACE COMBAT for the 360 to flight sim x like you were doing a while back? ROTF!

Keep in mind I am not using SP1, which gives a 30%-50% improvement in performance on my system.

Low 2.x - 24fps


Highest - 14fps



Low 2.x


Highest
