  1. Can you please remind me what LOD is again? Been away for to long. (render distance of objects and buildings i believe?) As for the video card, the 2080 is still around 200 euro's more expensive. Guess i could drop the windows 10 and keep using my windows 8 license? downside is that i can't run both systems at the same time then to copy over some stuff. (unless i unplug the old one from the good old internet?) BitMaster, i noticed you use an SSD as pagefile in your signature. Curious what the benefits of this are? Thank's for the help so far guys.
  2. Hi everyone, Been looking to build a new system for a while now. Problem is i got a bit out of touch whit the latest tech, is the below setup sensible for playing DCS World at 4k and (near) constant 60 fps? Don't mind if i can't run absolute max settings. PS, also do some video editing/rendering on occasion nothing fancy. (my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKw35resCE5-RhS9Nign4uA/videos ) AMD Ryzen 7 2700, 3,2 GHz (4,1 GHz Turbo Boost) socket AM4 processor GIGABYTE AORUS X470 Ultra Gaming, socket AM4 moederbord
  3. Nice System, pretty similar to what i have in mind. What resolution are you running? Curious to see how much headroom the CPU has when running on 4k resolution. (if any)
  4. Thanks for the help and advice guys. Gonna be a tough choice on what to get. As far as the clock, it's still spot on after letting the computer on overnight running Folding @ Home.
  5. Interesting BitMaster, what's your reason to go for Threadripper now instead of (Ryzen 7) / i7 7700k?
  6. Ok, there all around the 1 euro range here hence the question. Anyway took the old one out ( el cheapo) and measured 3.270 V Took a new one, a el cheapo i still had lying around and measured 3.372 V Starting to think I'm having a whole different issue, but can cause a CMOS clock to reset to random times other then a battery?
  7. No idea where to find a reputable dealer concerning batteries. But I'd still have some lying around, on a cardboard as you set. Never hurts to try i guess, Ill post the results here when done. ***edit*** Any idea of a decent brand? One's i have here are indeed el cheapo ones. however i struggle to find batteries more expensive then 1 euro.
  8. Changed the CMOS like 5 times. first time it helped for about 2 or 3 months. Last time it didn't help at all. Probably to do whit the fact i plugged in the power button lead wrongly and tried to boot the computer, shorting something on the mobo. Thanks for the help guys, is there any Intel/AMD CPU much better at this point for DCS then the other at a similar price point? And how about AMD Vega Graphics versus Nvidea 1070/80/80Ti in DCS ?
  9. Hello all, Having a bit of a dilemma on weather i should repair my PC or upgrade it. The problem is that there is a hardware fault (out of warranty) in my motherboard causing the clock to display random times and change at will, even going back in time. The last few weeks the problem is getting more frequent and as such it's related issues immensely annoying. Now the question is, should i just buy a new mobo and keep the other hardware, or go for a new mobo+cpu upgrade? Running Windows 8 mobo: Asus Z87-A (socket 1150) CPU: I7-4770 GFX: GTX 970 RAM: 16 GB Kingston Hyper X mult
  10. You mean the optimizations being implemented in other games right? Not the ones (in general) in DCS. Also, last time i checked the take of ED was not to support multiple cores, apart from the sound engine. Anything changed in the last 2 years orso?
  11. Better don't forget to remove them when its on a stealth mission. Not that, that will be any time soon......
  12. Now, what I am curious about is at what distance the Dutch LCF frigate picked up the F-35 on its radar.:music_whistling: One of these i mean;
  13. Seems good enough to me, the contrail needs some time to form so the missile flies x distance ahead of it. Maybe that's the reason you don't see it as much in the picture? Also, over the years many variants of the aim-120 were developped, and i believe the newer versions produce less smoke while the rocket motor is burning. [YOUTUBE]GFrLn8Dmudk[/YOUTUBE]
  14. ED Forums » English » Sim Topics » Input and Output » Virtual Reality Scroll, all the way down, it's hidden under the "input and output" part of the forum.
  15. Since the livestream is hosted on Youtube, i'd say that's VERY likely.
