I recently built a new PC. I am getting reasonably good performance in FS9, however, I have one minor problem when the texture maps in the sim appear "ghosted", that is, it looks like there is a transparent layer over the ground which then dissapears after about one second. As a result, I would like the communities opinion on my next planned upgrade, as I'm hoping this will resolve this issue.
AMD64 Venice Core 3200
Asus A8N Sli Nforce4 mobo
2Gb PC400 DDR RAM
1x7200rpm SATA Drive, 160Gb
1xGeForce FX6600Gt PCiE with 256Mb
On-board sound and LAN
Sony DVD drive
Microsoft Windows XP SP2 (Firewall off)
19" Viewsonic Monitor
I generally run the sim at 1280x1024 and love it!
My upgrade additions:
AMD64 Venice core at 3800
Additional FX6600Gt with 256Mb in SLi mode
(Possibly) 2x80Gb WD 80Gb 10,000 rpm SATA2 drives, RAID0
Now, as I said, I am mostly happy aside from this "ghosting" type effect, and I've heard that FS9 will not care about the additional video card.
As usual, all feedback appreciated.
