Hi,

I have an extra older PC sitting around, maybe 6 year old or so home built, and I was thinking it should be powerful enough to run LB2 and Janes F-18 but my question is which OS should I use?

I have all of them back to Win 98 but I think the easiest to install would be XP if it will work well with the 2 Janes Sims, any thoughts?? Fyi, I have newer box for DCS A-10 and the newer crop of software.

Thanks,
Doug

Now that I think about it, a better question would be which is the best/ easiest to use since I will be doing a fresh OS install just for Jane's.

Both Sims will work in both OS's but there are occasional compatibility issues.

If you are comfortable with having a Win 98 box, this would probably get you the BEST performance and fewest hassles.


Long system spec sig follows:



XP Box

Core2Duo E6600
ASUS P5N32-E SLI nVIDIA nFORCE 680I
ProMOS 4GB DDR2 800
EVGA GTX 560Ti
CoolerMaster CAC-T05-UW CENTURION 5
ANTEC TP3-550 550W
Samsung Syncmaster 2253BW
Soundblaster X-FI XtremeGamer
WinXP SP3

Win 7 Box: (thanks to kramer!!!)
Intel Core i7 3.06 GHz
16 GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 770
Corsair Carbide 400R Case
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Flight Gear:
