    Noted its the XFX RX 5600 XT Thicc III ULTRA which i believe is more powerful, I have no room for the Thicc , It would be sitting over other cables . Are you using high settings ?

    I did at first, then I found myself tuning everything down ha and when I say everything I mean the ram speed too...... and the board speed.... odd but it works this end... Just a thought it would be prudent to check if you have any bottlenecks in your rig.....

    forgot to mention when I bought the RX5600TX i also replaced the PSU which was 550W for a 850W PSU

    I think this is a must do upgrade.....

    He would have to change his CPU & probably his motherboard. He would definitely need a new psu.. & would be advisable for more ram. Ultimately he would have to buy a new pc.

    I thought my CPU would have been good enough, It might have been cheaper buying a new PC. Regards Graphics cards, There is a shortage now, so waiting for new stock. Just wonder if they are forcing people into buying the latest cards

    Your CPU may be adequate, depending on the resolution and settings you plan to use. If you are running 1080p and particularly if you can run a mix of medium and high settings, you should be OK. If you plan to run 1440k at ultra settings, you will need a new system.

    I don't think it's the intentions of the developers to force us to upgrade, rather present us with the latest and greatest leaps forward in the game industry. we seems to be the ones lagging behind for want of a better expression.... I hope you sort it out soon.....


    did you watch the video (Documentery) that's been posted this release of the sim is truly cutting edge compared to previous releases

    I have a Old dell XPS that i could upgrade.

    Regards the Radeon 570, Its playable, its only now and again that i get issues. Its how much money that your going to spend.
    So far i have spent £400 in total and thats a lot of money just to play 1 game.

    Daspinall, Do you have a link to that Documentery
