New Built for FSX/Prepar3d

Recommended Posts

 

But yes, if on a budget 550 watts will do.

 

I would go for 500W again if not planning SLI :-)

But everyone is free to burn money, sure :-)

On a budget yes. But preferably not for me. Adding a little extra for future upgrades, capacitor degradation quiter fan speed and alien intervention is worth while. After all, nipping up from 500 watts to 600 costs very little, like a meal at Nando's.

And you are free to do so ;)

Meanwhile I enjoy my 550W Seasonic PSU and have absolutely no problems with it :)

 

So everybody has what he wants ;-)))

Oh yes, no problem, I'm not saying YOU should spec higher. Just my personnel preference. It's all good.

GSkill Ripjaw V 3200 MHz.

 

As for the...

 

Then i have Saitek Thino X55F and Saitek Rudder Paddels.

 

 

 

I think you mean the "Rhino". In which case...

 

I had one, hated it, got rid of it. The joystick twist action for the rudder was way too heavy, no good at all for me, rubbish for Elite Dangerous where I use the twist a lot. Worst of all was the throttle! Oh my god!!! It's way too heavy even on the lightest setting and if you leave it a few hours it gets super stiff. It's a faulty lubrication issue. You have to whack the throttle back and forth twenty or so times to loosen it off before it's loose enough to use. Very bad design.

 

They may have improved them since I had it, so do test one first.

3000 MHz is enough...

 

Did you planed to use P3D or FSX with Hyper Threading ON?

The price difference between 3000 and 3200 is minimal. Further more, athe Ripjaw V 3200 modules are exceptional.

I would also go for the 3200.

Even though benchmarks show that the difference between 2400 and 3200 is virtually non existent.
