New PC build advice

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been asked before, but planning a new build to mainly use for DCS. I was hoping to get some pointers/advise on my shopping list based on your experience/knowledge as DCS does not always seem to correlate to the typical game benchmarks posted on youtube. This will be my first shot at building my own pc and I don't have an unlimited budget so naturaly I want to maximize my dollar to performance ratio.

Here it goes.....


Case - Cougar MX330 Mid Tower

PS - Corsair RMi Series, RM750i, 750 Watt, 80+ Gold Certified, Fully Modular

MB - ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) ATX

CPU- AMD Ryzen 7 3700X


HD1 - Sabrent 512GB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280

HD2 - Seagate Barracuda ZA2000CM10002 2 TB Solid State Drive SATA 6 Gb/s 2.5" SSD

GPU - XFX Radeon Rx 5700 XT

Primary display will be Oculus Rift S


Played DCS flaming cliffs with my son's HP Omen i7-8700/16GB/GTA 1060 3GB machine with the Oculus Rift S and it did OK to fair...but good enough to know there is no going back to a monitor.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

May I suggest to postpone the 2nd drive but therefor do get a 32GB RAM kit.


It is 10x easier to add a 2nd drive anytime later one than adding another 16GB of RAM.


Maybe the PSU could be 1 step better...I would do that

Gigabyte Aorus X570S Master - Ryzen 5900X - Gskill 64GB 3200/CL14@3600/CL16 - Asus 1080ti EK-waterblock - 3x 980Pro 1TB - 1x Samsung 870 Evo 1TB - 1x SanDisc 120GB SSD - Heatkiller IV - MoRa3-360LT@9x120mm Noctua F12 - Corsair AXi-1200 - TiR5-Pro - Warthog Hotas - Saitek Combat Pedals - Asus PG278Q 27" QHD Gsync 144Hz - Win11 Pro - Phanteks Evolv-X
