I am planning to build a new PC
for FSX. The budget is about US$1,300. I have been reading posts regarding the CPU and display card and finally come out with this specification.
CPU: INTEL Core2Quad Q6600 (2.4G
Motherboard: ASUS P5K (Intel P35)
RAM: 2GB DDR2 800 (1GB x2)
HDD: 320GB SATA-II 7200RPM
Display card: GeForce 8800GTS 320MB DDR3
. Card reader
OnBoard 7.1 HD
OnBoard 10/100/1000 Lan Card
ATX Case + RF405 485W P.S.
In additon, I am also planning to buy a 22' LCD
monitor to have a higher enjoyment.
I am not sure whether this spec is enough for flying with high density w/ max/many autogen scenery and for future add-ons such as Wilco Publishing Airbus Series 2.
I have read some posts regarding this Q6600 CPU and the Core 2 Duo E6750 1333MHz 4MB CPU. Some suggest that the E6750 is performing just at a slightly slower loading speed than the Q6600 but other performances are just the same. But these two cards is differentiated by about US$90. I wonder if it is worth going for the Q6600 or just the E6750.
Any comment/suggestion/advice on the spec would be very much appreciated! Thank you very much.
