Hardware & Software recommendations

Giving any kind of hardware recommendations for simulators is not easy, but there are few general ideas that are important;

  • Spend your money on the CPU rather then the GPU, most sims are limited in framerate by the CPU and the GPU can make it look better, not a lot faster.
  • SLI graphics hardware makes FS2004/FSX/P3D slower.
  • 8 Gb of memory works fine, more is nice but it will not help your FPS.
  • An SSD is the best investment you can ever do.

There are many guides on the internet that can assist you in selecting hardware. We like the guides at http://www.tomshardware.com/ a lot. search for 'System Builder Marathon". For Dutch users we also advise tweakers.net.

For your operating system things are far less complex, we strongly advise Windows 7 in the 64 bits version.
