This is the place where I post all my tweaks, tips, notes and information regarding all aspects of FSX.
The spec of my current PC is as follows:
CPU: Intel i7 930 overclocked to 3.9GHz with Corsair H50 cooler
Mother Borad: Asus P6X58D-E
RAM: Corsair Dominator 6G x 2 = 12G (1600MHz)
Graphics Card: GigaByte Nvidia GTX285
Storage: Corsair Nova 128G for FSX / Seagate 1TB for Addon Sceneries
Power: SilverStone ST1000-NV
Monitor: Dell 30-inch (2560 x 1600)
Chassis: Cooler Master CM690 advanced
My computer could be overclocked to 4.2GHz but I hate the heat. So I keep it running at 3.93GHz normally. Temperature is about 43 to 53°C under normal usage and up to around 80°C when running FSX. Overall performance so far is reasonably good and stable.
