Moving to P3d V3 Advoce Sought

Recommended Posts

Folks,

 

Just did a fresh install of Windows 7, fully patched and now ready to make the jump to P3d V3.1. In the past, I had tweaked my OS per an excellent guide I had found elsewhere, but curious if I need to do the same for P3d? If so, anything unique to running the sim on Windows 7?

 

My hardware:

 

Intel 4790K running at 4.6ghz

GTX 780

8GB Ram

SSD for the OS and dedicated SSD for the sim

 

Any advice, guidance, etc, is greatly appreciated

 

-B

With nowadays hardware (and yours is nowadays enough!) you don't need to tweak the OS imho. I don't, anyway. And you certainly don't need those over the top Nick-like Bible guides (if you know what I mean). Totally useless. Current hardware is fast enough and OS's work well enough. I use Windows 10 and reinstall it a few times a year but I only do some cosmetic changes and that's it. Most is default. The only hing I do is remove bloat ware I don't need but I don't do that for performance reasons but because I like my system clean. And I do prevent a few programs from starting up with Windows (simply using the Windows options to stop them, no hacking needed). But that is also mainly because I like a clean system: Prepar3D wouldn't notice the difference. That's it. So install the OS, install P3D and have fun.
