    What I suspect is that the sim is focused more on indexing the add-ons at launch, rather than loading all of the data. Think of cataloguing all the books in a library. Noting the title, author and...

    Haven't played with it myself yet, but from reading it here and elsewhere, I do have to wonder if the bigger factors aren't number and type of add-ons vs simple number of gigabytes. A simple test of...

    A decade ago I would have agreed, but recently I think they are more committed than ever to PC gaming (which is doing quite well these days in general too ). Why spend money bringing the Xbox gaming...

    Sure, large organizations can change, but in this case I think what has happened in the recent past does very much still apply. The same management that approved bringing the Halo series to the PC,...

    Your performance difference was due to the resolution difference, not physical size. A 1080p (which is HD by the way) 50" TV and 24" monitor would have the exact same performance using the same GPU....

    1920x1080 (I'm betting the x32 part is colour, though even if it 32" size, it doesn't matter to the GPU) is definitely not too high for that video card.

    Did you install on a clean copy of FSX? Or did you have add-ons already installed?

    PMDG have said they will be bringing their entire line-up to MSFS, including the DC-6. Might take a while though.

    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.

    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.
