Four new cards join the line up, all very similiar!
 
EVGA GTX295 COOP editionYep, they're at it again. EVGA have added four new cards to their range and to be honest, they all look the same. The cards in question are the new single PCB revision of the GTX295 which is constructed of a pair of GT200 GPUs on one PCB and 1792MB of GDDR3 memory.
 
The performance is pretty much the same as the older dual PCB GTX295, but it now consumes slightly less power and runs cooler. Known as the CO-OP edition, the new card carrys the same clocks as the old one (576MHz core / 1242MHz shader / 2016MHz memory). Then in typical EVGA fashion there is the Superclocked version which sits at 602MHz, 1296MHz and 2052MHz, it looks no different but will cost quite a bit more, for only a slight overclock.
 
If you're not impressed with the feeble overclock on the SC edition then how about the FTW edition? It carrie out of the box clocks of 684MHz, 1476MHz and 2160MHz on the core, shader and memory respectively. Although this is a much better overclock, the price will also increase too, near
 
EVGA GTX295 COOP hydro copper edition
 
 
Finally, if that's still not enough for you, then how about the Hydro Copper edition? It's not overclocked as high as the FTW edition but it does have a preinstalled full cover waterblock and boasts a similar overclock to the Superclocked edition at frequencies of 600MHz, 1296MHz and 2106MHz out of the box. The preinstalled waterblock will keep the temperatures alot lower than the air cooled counterparts, and will allow for more overclocking headroom.
 
The standard model is expected to retail at around £360, with the Superclocked following at roughly £380 and the FTW at £400. For all you people out there who have money burning holes in your large pockets, the Hydro Copper is expected in the UK at around £500.

E5200 (OC'd to hell), P45, 4GB DDR2, a 4870X2 or 275.

Although I've had an awesome result with a AMD 7750 Black, 4GB, and a 4870 which is mind-bogglingly cheap.



+1 but you could change the cpu due too FSX being multi threaded and highly cpu demanding, put an extra £50 into the cpu and get a q9400 off ebay or something

The Core 2 Quads and the latest AMD chips are pretty much on par (Intel will be slightly quicker, but not great value for money), something that a bit of overclocking can't fix. The price though...the Intel setup is going to be a bit more expensive, and hardly future-proof.

Anyway, we still don't really know the OP's requirements...

its the right time too get an intel combo due too the release of the p55 and i5 just think of the people making the jump, they will just flog there old intel kit for pennies

That's true actually, if the OP is willing to wait for a month or so.

I guess we'll have to wait and see :)

In comparison i7 has no real performance gain in gaming over Phenom II's

So, I'd say go for this..

£500 budget


AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
Asus M4A785TD-M EVO, AMD 785G Chipset, DDR3
OCZ 4GB PC3-12800 DDR3 Platinum (2x2GB) 7-7-7-24
Corsair 650W TX Series PSU
XFX Radeon HD4890 1GB PCI-E 2.0
500Gb Hitachi 7K1000.B SATA-2 Hard Drive

I too would either take the AM3 route or wait for Core i5 / LGA1156. 4GB DDR3 kits can be had from around £45 and respectable AM3 boards from £70 up so at this stage I wouldn't particularly look at AM2+. I don't have figures to back it up but in my experience, FSX runs better with nVidia's and I've found the ATi's in particular to be a bit of a PITA when applying AA/AF settings for the game. It's a tad late and so I don't have links but this would be my vague choice of parts

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition £145
Gigabyte MA770T UD3P £70
4GB DDR3-1333 £45
GeForce GTX 260 £120

If you're overclocking though, Intel's LGA1156 could well be the way to go and really I don't think it'd kill to wait a little longer for some more benchies to surface. :)

Be interested if an FSX anorak could say whether 8g would be a benefit.

Seeing as it was a new build, it's a cheap performance boost if it would use it. Perhaps even not performance, but extra things u can do with the game cos of having it.

I've never really seen overall memory utilisation peak much over 3GB (including background apps/OS) with FSX so as such 8GB isn't really a necessity. Once people start using really heavy addons such as aftermarket airport scenery, aircraft and weather however, it's likely to comfortably push over 4GB. With that in mind, perhaps 8GB isn't such a bad idea but it'd be overkill to some extent.

Thankyou for popping those specs together. I'm in the process of trying to flog my main PC, which tbh is quite hard & i'm thinking of stripping it down and selling it bit by bit.

Sorry I haven't replied; purely because I forgot about it..

Anyway, some of what you peeps have put together seem good, though I wouldn't be able to say whether or not they are good, hence you guys make the selection as you know what you are on about.

Still looking for a good rig, something with a bit of meat within 5 to 700 pounds
