Running 30-60+ FPS on ultra with AA and ICE AI Traffic installed. (Adds a lot of traffic (Traffic density 30%) and some big airports can become a cluster of planes)

It's pretty much the same, but may be better with future updates, so it might be a good idea to pick it up while it's cheap.

Man, This game has average optimization so medium/high settings at 1280x1024 no aa should be fine with your rig and fps i guess 40+. I do not know how mods will affect graphic settings.

This game is very poorly optimized. I suggest that you all go in the Low/Medium/High range instead of maxing it.

Did you try to check your specs to see if fsx suites in low, medium, high or ultra settings?

I did, my specs SHOULD have maxed it out, even on my budget PC (GTX 550 Ti, Athlon II X3 450). It just runs sloppily, below about 30FPS.

My graphics card is 82% above the recommended requirements and your GPU is 600% better than mine so yeah your CPU also exceeds the system requirements. So yes you can run it.
