I'd disagree, the optimum kit for running FSX will be the ultimate gaming
system available as FS XI is released <g>.

From past experience I'd say that the best kit to run FS is that which comes
out about a year after it is launched. <g>

With all this new FSX stuff around I thought I'd have a look at some new
hardware for later when Windows Vista arrives. One area important for FS is
graphics performance, so I looked at the Dell site, and a nice FS machine
appears to be their Dimension 9150.
 
This comes complete with a 256MB nVidia GeForce 7900 GS graphics card, but
it also has the option of adding the AGEIA PhysX physics accelerator.
Reading the blurb for this device, it says it vastly improves the graphics
performance, but the software has to be written to take advantage of it.
 
Does anyone know whether FSX can use a physics accelerator?
