It's time to upgrade my custom PC! Need expert advice!
Sup everyone. First and foremost, this forum is awesome! You guys helped me build my current PC, and it has been great ever since.
I got a few extra $$$ right now, and would like to upgrade my PC. I want to be up-to-date, but more importantly I want to be able to run the latest games flawlessly - specifically, Flight Simulator X.
I originally built this PC for Flight Simulator X right when it was coming out. I thought I had a bad system but FSX ran horribly on this PC! I tried FSX SP2 and that didn't really help. I un-installed it and haven't touch it since.
Anyways, I am ready to upgrade, and hopefully I can get the parts that will make FSX run like a dream on hi-res and hi graphics.
What I am thinking about upgrading is:
GPU (I don't know what the best is right now)
I was thinking about upgrading my ram, but I have no intentions of switching to Vista yet, and if I add more ram, Windows won't recongize over 2 gig, correct?
Any help would be great!
Current setup is in Sig! BTW, I have been running 3.2GHZ stable ever since I OC'd over a year and a half ago! Not a single problem
