Buying or building $1000 FSX Desktop

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions as to the best system I could get for roughly$1000-$1200? I need to be able to run a bunch of scenery and high end planes at around a fixed 25fps.

 

Thanks,

Rob

I wouldn't think there'd be any difference between buying a great gaming rig and buying a great FSX rig. You'll want to ensure you're getting a CPU that can do some serious overclocking, but most gaming rigs are built with this in mind anyway.

 

After that its all about getting good value for each component within your price range.

i7 4790K / GTX 770 4GB / 8GB 2133-2400mhz ram / Z87 or 97 motherboard /600w+ quality PSU

 

Still need HDD/SSD, case, aftermarket cooling for CPU/OCing, Windows 7, kb/mouse/monitor...

 

Would be very tight with a 1200 budget.
