    That looks like a decent off the shelf system for FSX. The only part I would question is that it looks like it only uses one stick of RAM, where two matched sticks of RAM would allow you to run in...

    If it's such a big performance hit there should be evidence that disabling the page file on current systems makes a noticeable difference. So far I have not seen any.

    Yep, how memory is managed is a bit more complicated than many people think. Increasing the page file certainly isn't going to solve a serious shortage of RAM, no, but going the other way and...

    Bit of a different situation and not really relevant to a modern personal desktop system though, is it? Especially if your page file is on an SSD.

    When you haves applications like MSFS that will happily use 16GB of RAM, and sometimes more, it isn't unheard of to fill up your RAM these days. Having a page file means Windows can move inactive...

    Why would you want to needlessly restrict how Windows manages memory? What would be the benefit of disabling it entirely other than saving a bit of hard drive space? If you need the space, then you...

    As the name implies, the page file is an actual file that lives on your hard drive or SSD (the system drive by default; it is also hidden). When you set a fixed size it will allocate and take up that...

    You can use it to check the health of your SSD to make sure it isn't causing your issues. Can also check the firmware in case there is an update as well.

    His listed specs say it's a 1TB drive, so should be plenty big and fast enough for Windows, Steam and the sim. My concern is that there could be an issue with the SSD itself.

    In addition to the OCCT suggestion, have you looked into the health of the SSD at all? There are a couple different applications that can check the health and SMART status. If you know the specific...

    If you're flying in the same area most of the time then a decent sized cache would help. In the other hand, it doesn't help much if each flight is in a new area.

    How much data you use and how much cache you need will depend on your use of the sim. Do you always fly in the same areas? Or is every flight in a different part of the world? Another issue would be...

    To be fair, Windows has got a lot better over the years while still supporting almost any piece of PC hardware out there. When was the last time you had to worry about IRQ conflicts, for example?
