I want to upgrade my system. I want to upgrade the cpu,mobo and gpu. Will add more RAM later on
Corsair XMS3 8GB (4GBx2) 1600MHZ
Gigabyte 1GB HD5770
2x 500gb hdd
I want to start firstly with the CPU and MOBO. Then around christmas time the gpu and maybe a ssd. The ram i aquired recently so im still fine with them.
I basicly wan to know what will be a good cpu and mobo to run fsx with detailed (payware) aircraft/scenery etc with decent graphics. I do want to oc the cpu!!!
My current system with the cpu oc'd to 3.8ghz runs pmdg's 737ngx at a detailed airport around 15-20fps. Isn't that bad, but the system like to crash out on me sometimes. The settings though isnt very high, mostly medium.
I have been looking at some of the 3rd and 2nd gen i5's an i7's but cant seem to figure what would be the better one (dont want to buy i7 3770k when the i5 2600k can perform basicly the same)
I know its a mouthful but any help or ideas will be much appreciated.
