Thread: FSX/P3D Software and Hardware Tweaking Guide

  1. Default

    Hi Kosta!

    I will put together a new rig next week and I have a couple of questions? First of all here is the parts on order:
    1 st CM Storm Trooper Gaming Big Tower
    1 st Corsair CX 500W PSU
    1 st Intel® LGA1155 Core i7-3770
    1 st MSI B75MA-P45, Socket-1155
    1 st Crucial DDR3 BallistiX 1600Mhz 16GB KIT
    1 st MSI GeForce GTX660 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E
    1 st Crucial m4 SSD 2.5" 128GB
    1 st OEM DVD-RW

    And here is the questions:
    1. Is a 500w psu to weak? I´m not interested in overclocking (I have never overcklocked and I think the 3770 is locked)
    2. I have w7 and w8 witch one to run p3d on?
    3. Do I need to install both fsx and p3d to be able to use addons I have for FSX in P3D? (of course only addons not restricted of any EULA)
    4. I will use the SSD to win and I need a god HDD for the SIM any god brands not to expensive you can recommend?

    Best regards
    Patrik S

    Hi Patrik,

    1. For non-oc machine, 500w is enough, yes
    2. W7
    3. Not neccessary. Use estonia migrator for those that don't have p3d installer. (of course!)
    4. I would say 256GB SSD for FSX, but if you can't afford, then WD black or the VRap

    Thank you for your fast reply!

    I looked in my current fsx folder and it was 107 GB so an extra 256 SSD may be an alternative to 1TB HDD?

    Well, to run FSX optimally, you run it off the SSD.
    If you need 1TB disk for data or whatever, that is up to you!
    Mind though that SSD should not be filled. Up to 90% I believe is OK.

    Hello again!

    Any idea about the TITAN series g-card? (Performing in fsx/p3d?) I saw they are in stock in Norway and Sweden in a couple of days and seems to blow away anything up to date ever produced (including the price tag €900 ;-)):


    GPU : GeForce GTX TITAN, 2688 cores, 28nm, GK110
    GPU Clockspeed : 876 MHz (boost) / 837 MHz (base)
    Memory : 6144MB GDDR5 (384 bit)
    Memory Clockspeed : 6.0 Gbps

    When I promoted this to "Stickie" status, the intent was to provide members with quick links to various tweaking methods and guides.
    It has now become more of a general hardware discussion. My fault too.

    I think "member specific" questions should be seperate threads in the proper forums. To preserve the original intent, Locked, it is...Don

    Nick Needham's new "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" FSX Bible is available here: http://www.simforums.com/forums/the-...opic46211.html
    As noted before: Kosta's Guide; http://kostasfsworld.wordpress.com/f...ardware-guide/
    They are both very good sources, but, Kosta's is an easier read, and may get your tweaking done sooner...Don
