Well, you say that...…….
i7 2600K 1st generation.
FSX Acc as well as FSX-SE. On their own dedicated HDD, and both run OK.
The odd stutter and blurry now and again, but all in all a fairly smooth game play with decent framerates.
All the main ORBX offerings installed as well.
Contemplating upgrade or not, one day I came to realise a very important fact..... The weak link is actually me:
I am not a very good pilot you see. Rubbish really
1. I am "number blind". My mind does not register "spoken" numbers. Tell me you phone number, and I am lost by the second digit.
As far as I am concerned, ATC can speak in Martian, its all the same to me.
However, having the ATC displayed
on the screen makes things possible for me.
2. There are many things I don't get the hang of in aviation. Like SIDS and STARS..heh?
Anybody can keep an airplane in the sky.
Just when, or at what point, do you "lean" the fuel?
What are the rules for prop control?
Pressed the wrong button...how do I restart this thing in flight again?
How far am I actually from the target airport?
Most time I try to land the airplane from either 5000ft up or through the branches of the trees.
See what I mean? There are many other things as well.
The question to myself is then:
1.Upgrade to P3D 64 bit? Is it justified? I don't think so.
2.Harware upgrades? Not worth my paltry level of skill.
3. I have long since given up on downloading new airplanes. I have some very nice downloads as well as payware planes, but, downloaded or bought, I have not truly mastered a single one of them yet.
4. Been with FSX 8 yrs now---clearly no hope for me.
As for upgrade then, well I'm just not worth it.
