So, my laptop is really struggling to play FS9 without it looking like FS2000. I have a Dual Core AMD
2.1ghz, 4gb RAM machine with 1408mb shared graphics. I can take it no more, and have decided it is time for a new build.
Now, I've decided desktop is the way to go, to offer future flexibility. I'm really not interested in FSX, as I've spent a lot on FS9 software. So, to cut a long story short this is what I want:
More than acceptable frame rates (35+) with most if not all sliders fully maxed.
Lots of AI
Some add on scenery; Heathrow etc
Ability to use any add on aircraft without a performance hit.
Possible use of online ATC - not something I've done but I'd love to have a go!
Now the most important feature: it's got to come in for under £350. I can't afford with a young family to spend any more than this.
Can anybody offer any practical advice on what specs I need to a achieve my target?
