    Hey,
    I just got a 24 inch 3.06ghz iMac with 4gigs of ram and the nvidia 8800gs grafix card and so far, i'm pretty impressed with it compared to my 2.4ghz imac that had a hard drive failure.
    I was wondering how well FSX would run on it. I run X-plane 9 pretty decently but really want to run FSX via bootcamp. I would like to run it fullscreen and hopefully at pretty decent rendering levels, does anyone have any experience with this? thanks very much, the help is much appreciated!

    Not with the imac but with my MBP 2.4 and nivida 8600GT 256mb. I runs pretty well at the mid settings but the machine gets hot. I use XP and it only see 2gb of rm but the sim only uses about 1 gb.
    I also run X plane 9 in OS x.
