Andy Martin 0 Posted July 20, 2014 Report Share Posted July 20, 2014 Hi, im Andy, new to the forum. I used to use fs2004 years ago and im looking to get back into simming with FSX. My trusty old pc is not up to the job so ive had 2 quotes from a local computer shop to build me a pc to run FSX. As a fairly untechy person, could anyone tell me if either, or neither, or one of the following 2 set ups are enough to run FSX at fairly high settings, with some add on aircraft, airports and scenery? Firstly, AMD FX-4350 piledriver black edition Quadcore 4.2GHZ processor Motherboard which will take up to 64GB ram 2 x USB3 + 6 X USB2 Realtek ALC892 8-Channel Blu-Ray Audio Lan 10/100/1000 8GB DDR3 1600mhz RAM 1TB hard drive 24 x DVDRW Internal optical drive Aerocool Strike-X One mid-tower gaming case with red lit fans 750W 80+ cert. Power supply Nvidia Geforce GTX750 Graphics card with 2GB DDR5 dedicated Ram Windows 8.1 64bit operating system (can be swapped for Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit) and secondly, the lower spec one. AMD Richland A6-6400 Black edition 3.9 Dual Core FM2 processor Motherboard which will take up to 64GB ram 2 x USB3 + 4 X USB2 Realtek ALC892 7.1 CH HD Audio Lan 10/100/1000 2 x 4GB DDR3 1866MHZ RAM 500GB hard drive 24 x DVDRW Internal optical drive Chieftek Mesh Series Midi Tower (no coloured fans) 550Watt 80+ cert Power supply VTX3D VX6450-2GBK3-H Radeon HD6450 2GB 64-Bit Low Profile Silent Graphics Card The second one is £130 cheaper but if its not up to the task then i would have to shell out my hard earned pennies on the first system Are these pc's liable to be noisy with all the fans running? Also, is windows 7, or 8 better for FSX? Any help and advice would be much appreciated, thank you in advance. Andy Quote Link to post Share on other sites
