So right now I have 8GB running very low in MHz. First does faster RAM speed make a difference within FSX? I wanted to upgrade to 16GB....Will that improve performance?

What RAM would you recommend?

Have you ran the FSX Jesus tweak on the FSX.cfg. It makes it were FSX can use more RAM

FSX uses about 3.5GBs or RAM. You are not really going going to need more than 8. Having 16 will not give you benefits other than video editing etc...

I have 16 GB of RAM(When I built my computer I originally intended to have 8 GB, but accidentally got myself 16GB with 4 4GB slots.)I look on task manager and I very rarely go above 6GB of RAM.

My RAM frequency is 1338Mhz(I should get this upgraded), and this will only be the true performance difference by upgrading. If you upgrade this you'll get less micro stuttering and make FSX more stable, and will make the initial boot of FSX and warm boots faster.

That said, FSX is only as good as what your wallet is willing to sacrifice.

Right now I have 8GB of RAM tunninf at 1333MHz. Will I see a difference in FSX if I get 16GB of RAM? Or should I just get faster RAM?

 

Thanks!

 

Not really. 8GB or 16GB, all the same, but faster RAM is another story. FSX likes fast RAM. Some reported less stutters, and even more frames (we are talking single digits).

 

And guys... it's not up to the RAM usage, but VAS usage. FSX uses up to 4GB of VAS.

Thanks Kosta! I will try get get faster RAM. Do you recommend any special RAM?

Nah, not really. If you are not some special overclocker, just stick to known companies, like Corsair, Mushkin, G-Skill, OCZ...

Off topic: Been keeping up with your blog recently Kosta, and even recommended your guide on quite a few parts on here :) Don't be a stranger on here, what happened with Avsim is terrible :(

On topic: Go for any of the brands he suggested, and remember to check the maximum speed that your motherboard can support (if you go over it. it will just downclock it - but high speed RAM is pretty expensive , aim for 2 sticks over 4 since the Processors memory controller has an easier time with less sticks - with less locations to allocate :)

Thanks Ross. Yeah, terrible but life goes on, with or without AVSIM. They are not the only flightsim website out there!

 

OT: Something I forgot to mention: high clock, lowest latency possible, of course.

Yup, I found here from your blog actually, don't know if I will hang around a lot yet though, time will tell :)

Sorry to tell truths about RAM's

FSX is 32bit operating program so it realy can't never use more than 3GB of RAM instead 64bit programs they can use more RAM

Well I'm no Computer guru.

butt better explained in here

http://www.fsbreak.net/podcast/2013/1/16/fsbreak-121-flightsimcon-2013-and-x-plane-10-news.html

if you listen news from X-Plane 10 there is few things about 32 bit and 64bit programs.

 

Sorry for typing errors
