our computer monitors only display 60 FPS at max, 60 HZ so you can get all the FPS you want but you are only getting 60 at your eye

not true chopperman, your monitor displays alot more than 60fps. you are thinking about refresh rate. that is another thing alltogether, and yes it could be as low as 60herts, not fps. newer monitors refresh over 100hertz this is simply better for your eyes (less flicker) has nothng to do with frame rate
hope this helps.

Peace Through Superior Firepower!!!

But if the refreash rate is 60, what good does a higher frame rate do? On my simulator anything over 70 doesn't seem to make any differences at all. I am running 135+ on my relflex with a cheapo video card and cheapo system. Why would I spend more money to get hire frame rates? On a side note, there are guys at my flying field that have high frame rates on there simulators but they still can't fly anywheres near as well as I can....hummmmm. Lets see more money for video cards and computer equipment ..... or ..... more money for helicopter stuff? But, anyways, I hardly crash so it doesn't cost me much for helicopter stuff either. Don't mind me, I just don't get why some guys spend so much to make there simulator that "seem" to run so great. My simulator runs smooth and crisp.

There are a lot of factors that go into FPS. Resolutions, color depth, and quite a few others and then all the features supported by the software you're using. Quoting a frame rate by itself is totally useless.

If you think running on el cheapo card is expensive then don't complain about the guys running two cards in SLI or Crossfire.

High frame rates for me are really a side issue as the high end card I have is capable of running all of the features in the graphics set up at their highest setting which gives a better picture .
I posted the high frame rates as this was the most discernable difference that was easily seen.
I did not buy the card just for the G 3.5 sim , I bought it for computer games . The latest games require a high end card to get all of the benefit of their features .
Like the sim , in these games you can turn down a lot of their features and still play the game but if you want to see all in great detail then you need a high end card.
Its a bit like R/C heli's , with a basic heli you can fly quite happily but if you want to do all of the fancy stuff then you have to buy a high end heli.
I reckon it's that simple .
Like the guy from Texas I fly all year round here in Oz as even in winter it only gets down to 40F and days are always clear , we have our rains in the summer in my part of Oz and its always warm rain so flying is usually 365 days a year.
Enjoy your sim and flying .

Well, if you really want to see all that great detail quickly, then you really need two cards and run SLI.

That's pretty much a load of bull.

Two cards in SLI are without doubt a good Idea but one good one is also rather good as well .
If you are going to run 2 lower end ( not very low )cards in SLI it would cost much the same as one high end one and not be all that different so the end result is much the same .
You don't see many of the top heli flyers using basic heli's they do seem to have top end models .
Sure with a basic heli you can do a lot of the manouvres but if you want to do the really tricky stuff a high end heli is the go surely.
For example I don't think a Raptor 30 with wooden blades and standard servos etc. would be as capable of hard 3D as compared to a Raptor 90 with all of the high end gear .
But then again maybe you are one of the few who can do it so you should be quite happy with what you have .

Agreed. In my case though, I purchased a Dell xps 720. To upgrade from dual 8600 GTS to a single 8800GTS would have been an additional $180. But when comparing the dual 8600 GTS to the single 8800GTS there was little performance gain until the AA and AF is cranked up and even then there wasn't a huge difference in performance. Coincidentally, on the charts I saw, the dual 8600GTS scored higher in some tests than the single 8800GTS. Now to upgrade to the 8800 Ultra would have cost an additional $580.

I normally build my own systems, but I recently had a house fire and really didn't have the spare time to build one myself.

BTW, It does display over 1000 FPS. OC'd my cards tonight. Really doesn't mean anything. I was just curious if it would display it.

Wow ! That is a lot of FPS . I guess all it really means is that your system is way up there in the power and performance stakes .
It must give really nice results when playing these new games that require a lot of horsepower .

Dual 8600GTS vs a 8800GTX....LOL the GTX would pawn that system harddddddd....

I have a Ultra, and its WELLLLL worth the money, I crank everything to maxx resolution and AA/AF turned all the way up to 1920x1200 resolution, it makes a xbox 360 look like a nintendo graphics wise.

The GTX and Ultra are well worth the money, I picked up a Used 1 month Old OC'd Ultra for 450$

My bad. The comparisons I saw were of the 8600gts sli vs a single 8800 GTS, not GTX. Will change my post to reflect that.
