I understand the motivation for moving the viper from the bottom of the list towards the top, but to me it's just a single engined hornet. It's completely redundant both in real life and in game...

RM750x's last forever and have nearly double the power output that system needs. I don't see any reason to go with anything fancier.

I have the EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 icx. It works well, though the fans were a bit loud when under heavy load. I ended up modding it with EVGA's hybrid cooler kit. Pretty much dead silent now while staying...

I counted my whole setup after building my current machine, it worked out to $3500 I think. That includes controllers, monitor and even the TrackIR5 that's been sitting in a drawer since getting a...

An overclocked 8700k + gtx 1080ti only uses about 450W for the whole system. And I have never come across a system killed by the psu. Blown psu's I've seen plenty of times, but toss in a new one and...

Yep, that build is way outside your budget. I recommend looking at the i5-8600k, a basic Z370 motherboard, 16GB of RAM, and a gtx 1170 when it comes. Cut corners like its crunch time at the circle...

DCS will use more than 2 threads on the Caucuses map but not on the NTTR or PG maps. The extra threads are only used during rapid head movement though. Not sure exactly what they are doing, might be...

DCS will stutter or completely freeze for network traffic. This is in game though. That 5 minutes of 2 fps when loading up 104th isn't loading stuff into memory or VRAM, it's downloading stuff from...

DCS is only capable of using 2 cores and 1 of them is for the sound engine. 30% usage is basically 100% as far as DCS is concerned. In fact it's more than 100%, but there are always background tasks...

That isn't how hyperthreading works. Disabling HT can allow higher overclocks sometimes but it has no measurable impact on single thread performance with modern cpu's. I have verified this with the...

For your case, I recommend either the Oculus Rift ($400) or Samsung Odyssey ($400-500). The Odyssey has better resolution while the Rift is the better overall system. This is doubly true in VR...

104th VR Fun: F-5 vs Hornet nest.

My advice is to sell the DDR3 (you can get more than you paid) and start fresh. Selling off the DDR3 should cover at least half the cost of the DDR4 replacement. Beyond that, the i5-8600k and a mid...

The F-5 and Mirage are your best bets I think. The F-5 is easy to use but hard to master. It also has an easy to read cockpit, making it one of the better VR options. The Mirage is a bit more...

i7-8700k at 4.9GHz and 1080 ti, same issue. The free and SoH maps give 45 fps even with lowest settings, NTTR does 90 though. Problem is cpu usage (100% on single core)

Depends on budget. For USA buyers:

< $100: TM T.16000m

$100 to $200: X-52 Pro or TM T16000m FCS HOTAS. Each of these has their advantages.

Infinite budget: X-56 or Warthog.

For pedals you...

I'm able to keep a locked 45 fps in DCS SP and MP, but that's pretty sad given I'm running an i7-8700k @4.9 GHz and a GTX 1080 ti at 2 GHz core. Graphics settings are largely irrelevant up to...

Beta only and been that way for years. Stable doesn't typically offer any more stability than beta and so might as well just have the latest stuff.

The AH-64 is pretty high on my wishlist tbh. For me, the AH-1 is the Mk.I attack chopper, and so I prefer early models of it with TOW missiles. The Mi-24 is the same way. I'd also like a modern pair...
