  1. One other question. With VR, which would you prefer? TracIR, Oculus, etc.... I have never used one and I would hate to get the wrong VR headset. Some say you cannot wear glasses (I do) and others are on about the size of the lenses... Cannot wait to get online after all this reading.
  2. Thank you everyone. I truly appreciate all of the input. Does anyone have any input on Intel's Xeon W-3175X CPU's???? Are they better than the new chip coming out? The new Intel chip is going to go for roughly $2,500.00
  3. I appreciate the info everyone. You have some kick ass boxes and I want MINE! I am like a little kid on Xmas and Xmas is 2 months away and all my friends parents bought THEM a cool box but not MY parents. They suck and don't love me. LOL I am going to pick apart everyone's info to help with mine. THANK YOU
  4. Does anyone have an opinion on this new machine: CORSAIR ONE PRO. Looks like it might do the job. I would prefer a build of my own like this one. Warranty Two years Weight 7.38kg Form Factor Mini-ITX Dimensions 200mm x 172.5mm x 380mm CPU Intel Core i9-10940X GPU NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti DRAM 4x16GB DDR4-2666 Liquid Cooling Liquid CPU/GPU Storage 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD Motherboard X299 Mini-ITX Operating System Windows 10 Pro Networking Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0 Power Supply Corsair SF750, 80 Plus Platinum External Connections FRONT: 2x USB 3.1 Gen 1, Combo Headp
  5. Its spotty and they slow it down. I need to find somewhere where they have a T1 or better. I appreciate the heads up on TORRENT.
  6. SWEET INFO! I appreciate your time. It has been 13 years since I have been in the puter biz but I am not too worried about building my own. Once I saw the VR on youtube, I about shit myself with excitement. I did not know about all this VR stuff. MY GOD has it changed flying sims. It is as if i were in the cockpit like a real plane and i DIG THAT! Thank you again.
  7. Thanks for all the great info! There is so much online and its hard to find the right place to buy from. I have thought about waiting for the new chips like you said. I only hope the wait is not too long but at least I can do the leg work now for everything else. I don't want to worry about FPS or any BS. I want the thing to fly seamless with VR. I appreciate your time.
  8. Hello everyone, I am a newbie here. Been flying puter games/sims since the 80's. I am a commercial ME pilot (in real life) and my first true love is helo's but flight school was too expensive. So I have 4k, maybe 5k to play with: What kind of box would you build? ALL WELCOME TO HELP ME WITH THIS. I want VR for sure but not sure of which one to choose. I have my eyes on either the valve index, star VR, pimax 8K plus or oculus rift s. I want this unit to be totally kick ass. Thanks for the help.
  9. Hello all, This is pretty much onboard with this thread. My question is: If you had 4 grand to build a new system. what would you build? I want VR for sure. I am looking at a Pmax 8k I also want to play ALL flight sims that use VR and are similar or better to DCS World. Thanks all!
  10. NEED HELP WITH NEW BUILD Hello all. I am new to this and need a little help. I want to build a new, dedicated puter to ONLY play flight sims. I am a commercial-ME pilot in real life and want to fly in these new applications. Here is my question: I have 4 grand to build a new system with VR. I can do the work myself. I may even be able to get another grand to work with. If you had it, what would you build? Please give me ALL responses. If I did not build, where is the best place to purchase online a new, VR ready puter. My second question is: I live in the country in N. M
