To Anyone who can help,
I currently am running a system that I'm afraid to fly Fs2004 on just because I dont want to attempt to fly it without decent frame rates. System Specs:
Intel P4 2.0 Ghz 512L2
1GB DDR SDRAM
nVidia Ti 4200 64MB
I am somewhat of an amateur to hardware upgrades and am on a budget. I am going to upgrade soon and had two options in mind...
Either I go all out and spend $600 on an AMD Anthlon 64 3500 processor( I have been told it kicks #####) conversion and upgrade my video card up to an nVidia 5700LE with 256 Vram. Also using the ram and other components on my current system. The other option is upgrading my Intel chip up to the max my motherboard supports (2.8GHZ 1mb L2 cache), and getting an nVidia 5950 or some other at that level. This project would run no more than $400 for me. Which do you think is the better option for me. And in general what gives Frame rates more horsepower in FS, is it processor or video card. Also, what is the best Video card for FS9, is it nvidia or ATI. Thanks for your time
