PC spec for new build please look

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I posted about a new PC build in the other hardware forum yesterday, but because of exams and stuff id forgotten everything about hardware so I did a bit more research and this is the setup I think is good enough for whatI want Id like you guys to comment on any hardware upgrades that I may need.

 

Ok so what I wanted was to run FSX in 3 screen Nvidia surround and be able to get at least 20-25fps minimum and 15-20 fps at busy places like NY etc. Also wanted for a few light add ons such as aircraft add ons and maybe a couple of airports.

 

So here is the spec I am hoping to get...

CPU: i7 3770K

Cooler : corsair H60 water cooler

Motherboard : Asus P8Z77-V LX

RAM:16GB corsair 1600MHz vengeance

Hard drive: 1TB SATA 3 6GB/s

GPU: GeForce GTX 680 2GB

standard sound and networking and windows 7 premium 64 Bit operating system.

 

Let me know what you think :)

Thanks,

Tom.

If that system, which is quite similar to what I have already, can't pull off what you desire, which is also essentially what I desire, I will give up on FSX completely.

 

I still haven't gotten NV surround working at 7680x1440 yet because of a bug in the driver that believes one of my monitors can't do 1440P in surround mode (even though they all can individually), but I imagine it's going to work out just fine once I get that bug squashed.
