I know ideally beggars ought not to be choosers.

My brother also offered me his old x58 board with 6gb ddr2 ram but dcsw would have choked on it.

Now I’m not fool enough to be trying to find state of the art pc hardware on the cheap but it’s got to be enough to run dcsw for a few years because even assuming i figure this out, it’s liable to have to work for me at least a few years because I don’t foresee money freeing up anytime soon.

And if it doesn’t work out then it’s the end of my hobby but life will go on as I leave the community.

Cheers

Right then Mower out Indefinitely...thanks for the comments and input.

My instinct is that the GoFundMe will not pan out here andso I leave my PayPal info on the chance that kindness or fate should bring any funds my way from my simming brothers.

PayPal mech.driver@rogers.com

Regards to all.

Thank you for your kind and generous contribution, brother Immel. Much appreciated. It all helps.


The wife cares not for my hobby andso refuses to allocate any scare funds to repair the simming rig.

Hey man, you should check out Reddit's hardwareswap forum. I've done lots of business there before, and so have many others. I would link it here but I don't know whether or not it's allowed. Check it out, though. You could find some really sweet deals from time to time.

Wife says if I stop buying beer for now that money can go towards a new simming rig.

Building a whole new simming rig.

Last step replacing the video card as it is cracked and overheats easily.

Question, for dcs is 16gb ram enough or is 32 really needed now, budget limited so if I could get by on 16 that would be good.
