Thread: The Best CPU for FSX?

  1. #11


    Look at my sig. That is all you need. Plus tweaking the fsx cfg. And getting rid of programs running in the background. I get 30 fps and have it locked at 30 fps. Smooth. No stutters. No CTD's. So throwing money at it (getting higher frames in sim) ALONE won't do it. Tweaking the cfg and finding the proper settings (slider settings) is what is required. Not a $5000 rig. I paid $1200 and you can find equivalent for the same price now a days if you shop around.

    I just pulled the trigger and ordered some new parts for my computer. This is what I got.
    Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake 6-core 3.7 GHz (4.7 GHz Turbo)
    Giabyte Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 motherboard
    G.Skill Trident Z RGB series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 memory.
    I think this will do the job with FSX and anything else I can throw at it. This was a combo package @ $680.21
    I appreciate all the information I got on this forum to help me get the best setup for FSX at a reasonable cost.
