will this set up be enough for me ?


Recommended Posts

hi

I am planning to get a new rig for FSX.

I am not looking for extreme detail here, nor ill be putting my sliders to 100 %..

I usually set sliders between 50 and 60 % overall, exept for traffic settings to around 25 %, i just find the game is a bit laggy, i use gamebooster and fps limiter.

 

this is my actuall setup

 

ASUS P5QPL VM-INTEL E5400-2.7GHZ-4GOram-WINDOWSXPSP3 -GT220GEFORCE

 

This would be the new setup ( canadian dollar)

 

ASUS H97M-E 112$

KINGSTON FURY BLUE D3 1600 8G KIT 99$

i3-4330 Processor (4M Cache, 3.50 GHz) 181$

CM EXTREME 2 725W 94$

win7 64bit 80$

 

i will match it with my old stock

- SATA 200gb 7200rpm

-GC GT220 gforce

 

what do you think ?

 

thanks for the advices :)

FSX only? If so, you might want to go with a budget Z97 chipset motherboard.

ASRock's Z97M Pro4, ASRock's Z97M Anniversary, ASUS Z97M-PLUS, and Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 are all very good mATX boards on a budget.

 

The i3-4330 is a locked dual core. Look at the Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core.

It's unlocked, and, at ~$70usd it will save a lot of $$, and, it overclocks very well.

Put some of the savings toward an aftermarket CPU cooler.

CoolerMaster's Hyper 212 is cheap and works like a champ.

That will be plenty for a solid 4.2-4.3GHz, 24/7/365 overclock.

 

A 725w PSU is overkill. Unless you are looking at upgrading to a high-end video card.

Ex: My new GTX-970 will run fine on 500w. 550-600w will be plenty for the future...Don

HAF 932 Adv, PC P&C 950w, ASUS R4E,i7-3820 5.0GHz(MCR320-XP 6 fans wet), GTX 970 FTW

16GB DDR3-2400, 128GB SAMSUNG 830(Win 7 Ult x64), 512GB SAMSUNG 840 Pro(FSX P3D FS9)

WD 1TB Black(FS98, CFS2&3, ROF, etc.), WD 2TB Black-(Storage/Backup)

Active Sky Next, Rex4 TD/Soft Clouds

Looks interesting, even more the fact that my actual psu is 550w.

But isnt that a bit too low for overclocking ?

this is all ofcourse ATX compatible right ? sorry im a noob...

 

I will tell the technician about it, thinks a lot !
