Thread: New PC advice

  1. #1

    Default New PC advice

    Hi all,

    I am looking at getting a new pc built for the new sim. I am ready to throw money at it. So, what would be the highest spec pc currently available ?

    Are there any component upgrades likely to be released in the next couple of months that would be worth waiting for?

    Recommendations greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Do you need the new PC for anything else right now? If not, I would wait until the sim has been released and tested to see what the best upgrades would be. AMD is releasing new CPUs and GPUs this year, which may be a good fit.

    Thanks for that. I will take your advice i think as my existing i5 based pc is fine for the moment.

    My previous FSX system is an Alienware M17X-R3 laptop, from 2011.

    I was recently given a desktop and have applied for FS 2020 Alpha, its specs are:

    Dell Precision T3600
    Intel Xeon E5-1607
    64 G RAM
    NVidia GeForce RTX 2060 (ZotacGaming) 6 G VRAM
    Dell Precision H310 SCSI 1 TB hard drive

    Does anyone have any comments on the potential performance of this system?
    Thanks, Carl

    At the moment there aren't any publicly available benchmarks for the sim, and probably won't be until the final version is released. The best indication is to compare your system to the specs Asobo have released (linked in another thread here). Depending on the generation of the CPU (Xeons can have the same model number across generations, with the generation denoted by v2, v3 etc.), resolution you will be running the sim at, as well as your internet download speeds, that system is probably somewhere around the recommended specs.


    Intel Xeon E5-1607 generations:

    From long experience, I've found that if you wait for the next big component upgrade, you'll never buy anything!

    Absolutely agree with that Pete however as my existing setup works well I might as well wait until 2020 is released to get the best I can for it.

    LOL - I don't think I've ever bought a PC from either Best Buy or Amazon that wasn't obsolete by the time I got it home and unboxed it - lol Shucks, they also try to convince us that some styles of toilet paper are "new and improved"

    I have been browsing anyhow and have come up with this. Not buying yet but i do like to be ready

    Intel 10700X (I'm an intel man)
    Geforce Rtx2080ti
    32gb ram
    1 500gb ssd
    1tb storage drive
    700w psu
    Water Cooler

    I will probably have it built to spec either locally or through Wired2Fire.

    The minute we have a release date i shall be pressing the button.
