I've recently upgraded my computer and moved to the dual core world with an Opteron 1212 processor. I'm still not happy with the FSX results. Would it have been better of me to spend the money on the Athlon X2 6000+? I have 2 gigs of ram and a 7200 rpm Seagate drive with a 16mb cache. Short of buying a Tyan board that supports quad Opteron processors what can I do to boost performance? Is there a difference in the X2 architecture versus the Opteron that makes one more conducive to gaming?
