Trying my 1st build for FSX - Am i right?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Currently playing on a gaming laptop that struggles with the last addons, I am thinking about building my first desktop computer with FSX in mind.

 

My own requirements are :

- 1000€ budget

- FSX oriented but P3D in mind when all my favourite addons become compatible

- Micro ATX case

- Only 1 screen 24'' full HD

 

Here is what I would like choose for the build :

 

Case : Cooler master N200

 

Power supply : Cooler master GM650 (Enough power or too much?)

 

Mother board : ASrock Z97M pro 4 (or equivalent form others brands. Do not know which is better...)

 

Processor : i5 4690K (I would like to overclock to 4ghz)

 

Cooler : Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo ( I checked it fits. is it enough for a light overclock?)

 

GPU : Asus GTX760 DC2OC 2GD5

 

RAM : 2 x 4 go  Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 1600 mhz cl9

 

HDD : Seagate SSHD 1To (no budget for SSD...)

 

Optical disk : Asus DRW 24F1ST

 

OS : Win 7 Home 64 OEM

 

Any advices would be appreciated? How do you think it will run FSX?

 

Best regards,

 

Pierre

I'd stretch for a gtx 970 - a lot better than a 760, but not as high end as a 980

 

Everything else looks great

Agreed. Went through this thought process today and got a EVGA 970 FTW. I have a GTX 680 FTW and was tempted to keep this - but the 970 benchmarks a lot better. 980 is obviously better still - but for the extra money you're not getting radical improvments over the 970.

First ive heard of the onboard sound being an issue... I've run with onboard for 10 years. What do you mean it doesn't like it?

Agree with Ryan re the 970, ditch the Hyper 212 and go for an Antec Kuhler 650 or similar which will have no probs fitting into that case.
