    Jake that AMD HD4800 while not the fastest does do some nice high-end graphics. However, a faster GPU with 2GB of fast video ram will help a bunch before you start spending a lot of money on upgrades. Also, my QX9650 comes in real close the performance of the i5 2500k processor. I did a computer for Milton at SOH with Q9550 and know it to be a pretty quick 775 base processor when combined with a fast GPU and RAM memory. Let's face it though, to take real advantage of what is possible in FSX and X-PLANE 10 moving to the i7 platform 64 bit is a must do if you have the bucks to spend. Those articles I posted earlier give a good indication of what is possible at some pretty great prices.

    Ditto this post! Early in FSX I made a couple of bad purchases by listening to the marketing hype and not doing enough background search and questioning. SOH has been pretty good about helping flight simmers discover the best products! Our developers in here account for themselves very well. Ted By the way, we can thank our freeware and shareware developers for raising the bar for FSX aircraft, skins, and sceneries!

    txnetcop replied to a thread XPlane PC Build in X-Plane
    Jake I am still running my old Gigabyte X-48 DQ-6 with a QX9650, Samsung 840Pro 256 GB SSD, and a Gigabyte 780GTX on a Windows 7 platform oc'd to 4.2GHz and it runs everything I throw at it beautifully-very fluid. X-Plane, FSX, P3d, high graphics. I have built some fantastic i7 platforms but just have not seen a need to move up yet. However, if you really feel the need to move to the i7 platform. This is some pretty good reading, and normally I don't quote Computer Shopper. I have always preferred Maximum PC for my info on builds. I built this killer system for a friend for $1376 using only one GTX 780 and one Samsung 850PRO SSD. Good luck,...

    Hey All, P I have no desire to "piss you off". In my opinion the reality is not the drivers and their abilities. It is the closed mindedness of the powers that be in every series although I maintain NASCAR is more open than most. I think there are many drivers who could cross series but can't not because of their abilities but because of the politics and old boy clubs that exist in multiple series. I would like to see that change. That clear? -Ed- I'll add a bit. here read this...

    Hey All, Not likely. Montoya is not the last once F1 is on an honest ethical basis that is not euro-centric which drove toyota and honda out and made it never worthwhile for Nissan. They all saw the writing on the wall. Honda does supply engines to McLaren today though - how they doin Hmmm? When it is an honest game I think you will see teams interested and that will provide opportunity for drivers. There will be drivers who can and will cross over to different series. Look at Indy and NASCAR - take Kurt Busch - one open wheel race the 2014 Indy 500 finished sixth and Andretti wanted him to drive this year but Kurt wanted to focus on NASCAR - can't blame him. Point is guys who grew up drivin stick shift stock cars can handle paddle shifts (the reverse apparently not so likely) -...

    There was also a blurb (not in Jayski) about Logano doing the 500 too. One, the other, or both would be great for the sport and both drivers have owners that could do it! :applause:

    Hey John~ Thanks for helping me out with the "friendship request" issue. I did not get any notification at all.
    Gigabyte was able to help me with the Blog thing. So we are all set!
    Great teamwork there!
  2. Cool pic of you and the tweet!! I'm very envious. Maybe if I had better eyesight I wouldn't have failed my flight physical and toiled as a crew chief for so many years. Renting planes gets expensive!!

    You're kinda reserved, but I'd sure love to hear some good flying stories of your sometimes. What years were you active and what ypes did you fly?

Inside Beta Testing

by jmig on January 2nd, 2012 at 18:23
Over the last ten years or so, we have all seen MSFS models go from $5.00 each to $50.00 and more. With the increase in pricing, have come increased systems integration and model complexity. Interior and exterior visual acuity rivals today real aircraft. As the realism of flight sim models have increased, so too have the expectations of the consumer.

Developers are caught between the customers’ desire for ever better and more exact models, and the increased costs in man hours to program

End Devices for I/O Cards

Real world pilots control aircraft functions with switches, potentiometers, encoders, etc. We virtual pilots can also control our virtual aircraft with switches, potentiometers, encoders and more…through the I/O card.

Remember the I/O card is nothing more than a middle man between us and the flight simulator. By twisting a knob, or moving a control we send information through the I/O card to our virtual

Using I/O Cards

In an earlier entry I mentioned Input/Output (I/O) cards. Today we will look more closely at them and what they can do to enhance your flight sim experience. We will also look at some different I/O cards and later start building a simple switch panel which will control some of the MSFS basic functions.

Perhaps the most common I/O card available is the one in that old used joystick you have sitting up in the

As we continue this blog, I will show you how I made many of the components and panels you see here.
This blog will go through the basic building blocks which together make up the simulator. Also, what
