So I built this ridiculous system that has by far exceeded any expectations I could have wished for, and I haven't oc'd a thing yet other than the cpu. Anyway, I fire up FSX with frame rates now over 80-100 and the game still looks pretty much like crap. Not because of the system, but rather the game itself. Oops. I crossfired these 2 GPU's and FSX doesn't even push it enough to kick the 2nd card in. Soooo...if your like me...my system should last a very, very, very long time with minimum upgrades.
I too built my rig for fsx, To make the most out of it you really need to download and install real environment extreme and ground environment extreme, and also search for "jesus fsx cfg" in google and replace your current cfg file for this one.
Sli wont work with fsx, but it can eat the best of cpus on max detail with addons
Fsx for me now looks like a completely diffrent game with stunning graphics and detail.
