I bought a new computer for finally being able to use FSX
Here are my specs: i7 email@example.comGHz
(Turbo up to 3.9GHz), Coolermaster Watercooling, 16GB RAM, EVGA GTX680 2GB. Windows is on the SSD and the Sim is on a WD Caviar black 1TB.
Everythings that was just impossible on my old computer seems to be possible now. I installed several addons (UTX, GEX, Landclasses, CH-Pro, REX, ASX, Traffic 70% and of course LSZH, which is my home airport) and I get most of the time 30fps (locked at 30, because screen is at 60Hz and I have a Vsync rate of 1/2 in nVidia Inspector).
Even with bad weather conditions standing on Rwy 28 with a Wilco Airbus (which uses some fps..) I get 30fps. Only when I turn my head (literally - Track IR) towards the parking decks of LSZH, my fps drops to about 23. What is this? The high-res textures of those huge buildings? Is there any chance to still 'improve' the performance at LSZH?
I ask because this is really by far the most important airport for me. Maybe you adivce me to OC my CPU, but I'm rather careful with that...
I would like to know which sliders in FSX I can reduce to get a stable 30fps all over the airport.
