Yes Gerry, you should see an improvement, and a smoother sim, and a bit less disc use.

And the current ram price these days, just pocket money.

well worth it.

So, does that mean, with XP Home, if I increase my ram from 2Gb to 4Gb,
it will use 3.5 Gb without me doing anything? If so I've another item
for my Christmas wish list.

What is actually fitted is 640Kb base memory plus 4096Mb extended memory
according to the Bios record.

I haven't tweaked anything yet. Windows XP Professional SP3 plus FSX SP2
plus Horizon Gen-X version 1 with Volume 3 "flooded Lake District" patch
all otherwise "out of the box", as it were.

Peter, is this using a mod to the FSX.cfg file? If so, what line
have you entered and have you avoided the crashes that some users
mention? I understand that's caused by insufficient memory being
reserved for XP.
