    XP 64 or Vista 64 for FSX ?

    Has anyone tried FSX with XP 64 and Vista 64 ?
    To avoid OOM 64 bit is th ebest option.

    Any difference in framerate ?

    This is my system and with FS9, all sliders full and ad-ons I get arpox. 130 to 230 fps. With FSX, most sliders all the way over and REX loaded and some tweaking, I get close to a steady 40 fps. (Widows XP Pro, SP3, 32 bit):
