New Computer

Recommended Posts

Guest ZOTAN

Well the time has finally come for me to start building my new computer. I really dont want to shell out 1200 dollars at once though so I am planning on first buying a new case, transferring everything from my old computer into the new case, and then replace all of the components over the next few months. Does this seem like a good idea to you guys or would it be better to do it all at once? Also what components would you reccomend so that my 737 and eventually 747 from PMDG run smooth?Thanks,Matt

Problem with that is you'll end up being slowed up by the worst component. Have a look at the thread above ref graphics cards.If you get a fast mainboard/processor and fit your old slow graphics card, you'll still have poor performance.You'd just as well do it all at once. Just go as fast as you can afford with everything. Athlon 64 3gB+, 1gB memory, summink like an nVidia 6800 with 256k...... and once again, if you'r going to do this, get a case with a 400w+ PSU - a 200w one will just not do.:-)

Get an nForce 4 based motherboard (the MSI and DFI brands are good), a Socket 939 Athlon 64, 1GB of memory, and either a GeForce 6800GT or a Radeon X800XL.

... admittedly, that amount of onboard memory wouldn't realize stunning fluid video quality graphics!Hehe. Coulours are vibrant mind you - all two of them :)
