Pictures of our FS9/FSX/XP-10 Computers and Cockpits

Recommended Posts

We talk a lot about what equipment we fly with, so perhaps it is a good idea to have a thread for sharing pictures of our flight simulation computers and/or cockpit layout and equipment. Of course what each of us have is a moving target since we tend to occasionally upgrade and change computers or components, so maybe posting updates from time to time would also be helpful.

 

I hope you think this thread is a good idea too.

 

Kind regards,

Nice. The red LED fans up top add a nice touch to the whole package.

Okay, my pictures are attached showing a more modest setup (no fancy lights). In fact, there is no sense in looking at the interior. I have to admit that I enhanced the setup a little by wiping the dust off the yoke. It appears that I need to do the same to the rest of the room, including the computer case.

Therefore, here is my FSX machine and controls as of October 1, 2010. I hope you think this thread is a good idea too.
Nice rig, Stephen.What size is that Dynex and how are you connecting it to your video card? - Are you using the HDMI connection or somehting else?Your sig says 40LCD - I'm assuming that it's an HDTV - Thanx,Vic

Hahah, this is like the exact same topic over at the orbx forums - I think you even started that one lolAnyway here's the same pic I posted over there. Just replace the small 15in LCD with a 20in Dell and it's exactly the same. I also use Track IR 5 not pictured.An aging system but it works fine as long as I stay away from big cities and PNW (which I have).IMG_2755_sm-1.jpg

Hi Art,My computer was pretty dusty too until I cleaned it up. :P Kind of surprising how much stuff gets in there. Good setup. What kind of yoke is that?Kind regards,

Vic,The large Monitor is an LCD HDTV at 1920 x 1080 resolution. With very high 16 AA the screen has an excellent picture so gameplay is overwhelming because of the size of the screen. The connector is a simple cable like this one:Connector CableKind regards,

Nice thread, Stephen :biggrin: Below are some pictures of my pc. As you can see I'm not a big fan of fancy gaming cases :wink: The cabling could have been better, but the cooling is still effective. There are 6 S-ATA disks mounted.pc1jx.th.jpgpc2p.th.jpgpc3xw.th.jpgpc4p.th.jpgpc5m.th.jpgpc6t.th.jpg

Thanx Stephen - I currently have a 28 and a 22 but I've been toying with the idea of a 40ish HDTV for as monitor.IS there any reason why you went to HDMI->DVI cable as opposed to HDMI->HDMI? I know the gtx480 has an hdmi output. Does/would it make any difference?Vic
