I think 16gb should be plenty in most situations iam using 8gb lol.

With lot of units and heavy maps 32gb is recommended i think.

Also what resolution is your monitor ?

Less pixels need less powerful pc.

I managed to rebuild a new system with a 8400 cpu on a GIGABYTE Z370 mobo with 16 gb ddr4 ram. I was able to save the PSU and hard drives.

Not a stellar simming rig but the wife broke her arm last Fall and is still off work andso cash is hard to come by.

The cracked video card happened while rebuilding, the cat knocked the gpu, a 960gtx, off the desk when I was away. Now the gpu causes BSOD and/or just overheats and shuts down. The onboard mobo gpu runs games like shite.

If anyone still has any interest in contributions to help this brother get to the finish line, it would help big time.

Paypal is mech.driver@rogers.com

Thanks for reading this.

I think I have a spare 970... let me check if it's still around and how much it would be to ship out to you.

My brother offered me more RAM but the timings are different, would this be okay or would that hinder performance?

Any progress, kind sir?

Im dead in the water, err air, without a gpu and times they are hard for this old simmer.

I have about $90 saved for a new video card, but that could be directed to shipping for this one if an option.


Alternatively if anyone is looking to contribute to the fund I am still humbly open to any donations.


Things will get better for me down the road Im confident, at which point I plan to pay it forward and help someone else.
