Love it! My bottle neck is my RAM... 8GB of DDR2 when the requirement is 512MB.


However the game really bugs out with my system... I think it might be the fact of my GPU chipset may not be compatible due to the increase in power compared to what the recommended is though. Tell me if I am wrong.

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)

Is the Steam version optimized for newer hardware? Because if it is i would pick it up for 5 dollars.

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.

I did. (For 4,99 euros i just typed dollars to make it easier for people) And its well worth it for the added multiplayer.

It's actually a good question. I have an FX-9590 and a GTX 1050 Ti with 16GB of DDR3 1866MHz RAM, and I only get about 15FPS. Obviously there's something not right, but I can't seem to figure it out, so i can't run it

FX-8350 and a GTX 1060 3GB, with 16 GB of RAM and my PC stutters too. It was a poorly optimized game back when it was released and dovetail didnt fix much. I suggest increasing your core usage in config, it helps alot with octacore PC's.

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.

Probably medium or high but with a very playable it might lag on high but not 100% sure the palit GT630 2gb should run it. You do know that card was discontinued though? And buying second hand essentially means no warranty, think carefully.

You can. At least on med settings with your resolution, possibly on high as you don't need too many FPS in this game.

You'll run this on ultra, both your CPU and GPU are massively better than the recommended requirements.
