So I posted this an Aviation Hobby last week, and only got one reply. I'm hoping I can get more help here in Non-Av.
Need advice on these specs, especially on how they will handle FSX:
Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor Q9300 (6MB Cache,2.50GHz,1333FSB)
RAM: 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz - 4 DIMMs
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD3870 512MB GDDR4
1. How much better is this one over Intel® Core™2 Q6600 Quad-Core (8MB L2 cache,2.4GHz,1066FSB)?
2. How much better would Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor Q9450 (12MB Cache,2.66GHz,1333FSB) be over the one I'm selecting?
Basically, which one is better, the ATI selected, or the nVidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB?
These are specs from the Dell website for the XPS 420. What are some websites where you can buy parts to build your own computer?
Thanks in advance!
