Needing CPU/GPU Advice for P3D


Been searching the better part of the night to no avail.


So.  I am seeing from the forums here that P3D is more GPU then CPU.  Got it.


Q.  Which CPU, i7 or i5?


Q.  Then which one?  4690k etc.  


Q.  If I go i5 which GPU?


Q.  If I go i7 which GPU?


I am mindful of the DX12 solution (maybe) coming.  In those days we'll have to see about upgrades.


As you can see my rig, it's upgrade time for sure, even if something is coming down the pike.


Thank you guys so much!!

Hi, if I was you I'd go for a i7 4790k plus a 970gtx, P3D is still very much CPU dependent, albeit not as much a FSX.


Another option is a i5 4690k, plus 980gtx, use the money saved on the i5 and get a better GPU.


Or go balls out 4790k + 980ti!
