Hi to all, I know this may have been discussed previously but everywhere I looked the vote is for Intel based CPU's rather than AMD. They forums looked  state that because FSX is mainly uses single thread Intel is the best CPU to run it.

I have an overclocked Atholon X2 Phenom 550BE edition in which I am getting reasonably good frame rates in medium settings except in dense scenery areas.

I am looking to upgrade to an FX-8350? Would this be helpful in getting good framerates with scenery maxed out or can people suggest a good AMD cpu out there that will help me. I want to use a cpu with a gfx card, I am not sure about the new APU's though. Always been an AMD fan.

Thanks for your help.

Neil
