I agree - if you are going to need tech support don't expect it from

That said, my new Dell XPS 3.0HT is working great. I have to look for
situations where it drops below 30 fps.

An example:

Location: KJFK in NYC (default detailed airport)
Scenery: Extremely Dense (max)
AI Traffic: 100% (I have about 4x default traffic there)
Most other sliders except mesh and a couple others maxed.
Radeon 9800 Pro, maxed AA etc.

Result: 23-30 fps (maxed at 30). Had to go hunting to find the 23 fps,

Hope this helps,

I am thinking about he Dell Dimension XPS
I would want at least 30 FPS with highish scenery/AI/weather
Is this possible?
