NEW RIG CONFIGURATION HELP!


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

i am a long time follower of this forum and DCS WORLD in general.

I am a returning player in DCS and i wanted to buy a new rig.

I would be interested also in playing X PLANE 11 and Microsfot Flight simulator X.

 

I would like to ask help in choosing the right components for the system that i need.

 

Ideally i would like to play 720p at medium high setting with a 30 fps MINIMUM...

 

I am not into the BUILD IT YOUSELF thing so i am choosing between preassembled solutions

 

i have been offered these pre built systems

 

CPU INTEL CORE I5 7400 3.0GHz

GTX1030/2GB GDDR5

RAM 4GB DDR4

 

or

 

CPU INTEL CORE I3 7100 3.9GHz

GTX1050 2GB GDDR5

RAM 4GB DDR4

 

or

 

CPU INTEL CORE I3 7100 3.9GHz

GTX1030/2GB GDDR5

RAM 8GB DDR4

 

 

If any of you have one of this configuration pleas let me know if i will be able to play 720p with medium high setting with at least 30fps stable (ideally 60fps would be top!)

Also would be much appreciated a suggestion for an alternative configuration that would still satisfy my requisite while also being CHEAPER!

 

Thanks to those who that will find time to answer!

 

BYE

Luca from Italy!

Ciao Luca,

 

Welcome back to DCS and flight simulators! ;)

 

So you are going to play 720p... How many inches is your monitor?

Hey all,

 

budget would be max 500 max 600 Euros. Monitor is 27 inches. I just need 720p as resolution i dont really need 1080p but i prefer a stable performance so a 30fps guaranteed and ideally 60 fps.

 

So budget is tight and with those configurations you say i really can not play DCS as intended?

I am not realy into PC components so i am a little bit ignorant in the matter.

 

 

Question is I really need this rig ONLY to play DCS and nothing else , i dont do mainstream gaming on the PC and i would not really use it for any other things so spending 1000 euros just for DCS is a little bit too much....:):)

 

thanks for any reply!

none of the 3 rigs will be what you need and none of them will be worth the expense as you will end up in a No-Fly-Zone scenario.

 

4GB+ VRAM ( GTX 1060 6GB is a good choice for you )

8GB+ RAM ( 2x4GB 3200MHz )

4GHz+ CPU ( AMD Ryzen 1600X would be my pick )

720p on a 27 inch? That will not look good at all:(

 

There is no such things as a to powerful PC for Flight simulation heat1099, the bigger and badder the PC, the better the experience will be.

 

DCS and just "flight simulation" in general puts more strain on any system, it's always a balance between eye candy and playability, much more than any "mainstream gaming". Choose any steam game and it pretty much would run better than any flight sim, there's just so much going on in flight sims, plus just the shear size of the eye candy world you fly in.

 

To get some sort of good playability, If you can? I would not go under 1080P on a 27 inch screen.

 

 

4GB+ VRAM ( GTX 1060 6GB is a good choice for you )

8GB+ RAM ( 2x4GB 3200MHz )

4GHz+ CPU ( AMD Ryzen 1600X would be my pick )

 

The above posted by Bitmaster is what you should save for, it should give a good decent experience in most flight simulators at 1080p.

Well op saved the $ he has now,wait a lil longer and save more for better..If op sorta cheaps out now he will still have a big bill to update even a lil bit later..

If he buys a mid grade system then has to upgrade more later is almost like buying it twice..I say,save longer and go big the 1st time..In the long run it will last longer..

The "SCALES" of aeronautical performance will weigh heavily on your next move..

No one is going to say to order it here heat1099, this is an expensive personal toy that you will have for years and for you to decide, we can only help suggest things for flight sims.

 

Most guy's here research all the options and if necessary wait and save to get that little bit better part that will make there system better and more of a value for money build. I don't build PC's general, this time I did, because I bought the parts I wanted from different suppliers to get the best bang for buck.

 

What is the cost difference between the CORE I5-7600 and the Ryzen 1600X?

Have you compare this with other systems?

Share some links to other systems, also have you looked up user reviews on these parts? Are they recommend for a budget build?

 

I know you wrote 720p? You want 1080p if your spending this much, the biggest problem with this system is the GTX 1050 2GB, if I was to pick just one, you really want at least the GTX 1060 6GB, there is a 3GB 1060, I would get the 6GB one myself.

 

I would get the I5-7600(k) K version and give it a little kick overclock, but then I'm stuck because the Ryzen 1600X here in Aus is around the same price so? I would go Ryzen? mmm decisions decisions....

 

1050 vs 1060 6GB

1050 vs 960 last gen card

 

I went as far as my budget could go on my build, well until I'd get a clip over the head by the misses lol. I'm still only using my GTX 1070 which is more than ok at 1440p and still OK for small VR missions.
