Need advice on comp build


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I need a new computer in order to play through the mustang campaign and multiplayer. I also play war thunder. I have come up with this build so far, will this work well for these two games on at least high settings playing smoothly? Is it a balanced setup? Any problems/dumb mistakes? Are their better places for me to ask these questions?

I'd highly suggest going for the i5-4670K for the extra ~$40. I have mine OC'd to 4.5 on air cooling and it's happy to play DCS on high settings at 60FPS, rarely going below 40.

 

I don't know about war thunder, but the GPU might be overkill for DCS, and I keep hearing ATI cards have issues, might be worth searching the forum to check. Either way, the GPU isn't much of a bottleneck for DCS. I had 60FPS with an old GTX560 if I kept the MSAA and all that other eye candy down a bit. Definately want at least 2GB memory though. I'm using a GTX760 now and I was able to crank up the post-processing significantly and still maintain 60FPS@80-90% GPU load. If you like FPS games and other things that stress the GPU you might keep it though.

 

I'd also recommend going for at least a 240gb SSD, it fills up quick. By the time you put your OS and usual basic apps on there you're already used up a good chunk of a 128 gig drive. The speed advantage of SSD over a platter is incredible, I don't think I'll ever put anything but media on a disk again.

 

You might be able to save a few bucks on the PSU. Put your system build in an online PSU calculator and you'll probably see the requirements are closer to 500W peak, although there is something to be said for future-proofing.

As of right now I would say your setup looks good except for the GPU. DCS does better with nVidia right now and the I went with the 770GTX before all this Bitcoin stuff took off. This card makes the game run smooth and is very playable at 1920x1080 w/ everything set to high. Now if DCS isnt going to be your primary game then the 280x is a better card for the money, there is no such thing as overkill for DCS or any top title now (unless you go with the GTX Titan Z) but even then you probably couldn't run every game maxxed out.

Im running the 1st gen i7. I have a friend running the new i5's with the same video card and we get about the same performance in DCS. For me, if I had the money, I would go with the newer i7 and not worry about anything for a while lol. Since DCS only utilizes 2 cores (one for audio the other for the game) its more about GHz anyways. So on my i7 I have disabled hyper threading to and noticed that the game actually runs better. So an i5 clocked at 4.5GHz would probably perform just as well as an i7 at 4.5GHz
