Best upgrade for performance. in PC Hardware and Related Software Posted August 21, 2015 If you can, wait a few weeks until DCS 1.5 arrives in september. (hopefully) The new engine coming with 1.5 should give you a better performance. That is a good machine.. The first thing that smacked me in the face is that you are running a mechanical HD. HIGHLY recommend moving that 1 TB mechanical drive as a secondary and buy a fast SSD. Prices are coming down all the time and it makes a big difference in DCS... Make sure you get at least a 500 Gig drive or you will run out of space pretty quick... After that, I would wait for DCS 2.0 and see how that pans out. You have a good machine now, you should be able to tweak for better performance.. (And the SSD will make a big difference) :thumbup: Thanks for the replies fellas. So from what we've seen of DCS 1.5/2.0 so far do the pefromance upgrades seem significant enough to make difference? Probably does make sense to hold off until it's out at least. I was worried about 1.5 to be honest because I was worried the update would actually cause performance to drop due to improved textures and effects etc.
