New System Config

Recommended Posts

Hello I am getting ready to purchase a new desktop as my previous one was damaged in moving.

 

I am having difficulty trying to decide on 3 things.

 

1. I7 3930K vs. I7 3820 either of which I can purchase. I want to get the Max performance possible.

I want to run. PMDG 737NGX, REX, ORBX, MEGA SCENERY, ETC.

 

2. Trying to decide on memory 16GB OC 1600, 1866, or 2133.

 

3. For the GPU trying to decide on GTX 670 4GB OC, or GTX 680 2GB OC.

 

The motherboard will be an ASUS Sabertooth. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

If you're on multiple screen setup go for the 4 gb gpu.

If you're on a budget go with 1600 mhz ram, some say ganes don't benefit from anything faster, but otherwise I'd go as fast as possible (what the board will handle).
