I'm interested in purchasing an Intel 2.8 dual core chip with nVidia 6600 - 256mb, adding one hard drive at 10K RPM, with 2GB of DDR RAM, either XP or XP Pro, whichever anyone thinks is best?
I'm currently using 2.0GHZ Intel, 2GB RAM, nVidia (chip) 5500, with three HD that are limited to 7,200 RPM, with XP Pro.
With FS9, plus the following addons:
Weather Enviroments (enhancements)
All from Flight One.
Additionally, I have PCATD (Precision Flight Controls) Cirrus II with Jetliner yoke, so with this equipment, smoothness (high speed refresh rates) is manatory.
Question is this:
Will the refresh rates be faster with a dual core (as opposed to a single core, i.e., 3.4GHZ)?
My goal is not only make FS9, regardless of addons, and slider maxed out, smooth like a television screen....
Your opinions please, I am ready to buy.
Thank you well in advance for your input and other suggestions would be well received.
