P3D v3 new PC spec.

Recommended Posts



I am just planning to make the leap from FSX to P3D V3 and after reading up on AVSIM for the last 3 nights I have come up with the following spec PC I am going to order from SCAN and had 3 questions below I was hoping for some help with.


-Intel Core i7 6700K Quad Core with Hyper-threading Professionally overclocked to 4.6GHz

-Asus Z170 Pro Gaming with Intel NIC and SupremeFX

-16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 3000MHz


-2 x 250GB Samsung Evo SSD & 2TB HDD

-750W Corsair RMi PSU

-Microsoft Windows 7 pro


3440 x 1440 21:9 ultra-wide curved screen monitor


Questions I have is


1 Do you think this would run the following add ons at a nice smooth 30 fps?


FTX Global,

Active Sky Next 

Rex 4 + Soft Clouds

Traffic program

PMDG 737 AND 777

Add-on airports UK2000, Aerosoft, FSDT, Fly Tampa ETC 


2 Is the graphics card going to be up to the job of running the monitor at 3440 x 1440 or should I go for a 6GB card?


3 Am I better off going for a six core processor overclocked to 4.4 ghz?


Any other advice appreciated


Thanks in advance for any help

I sure hope so because I have ordered a similar rig to you expect a GTX970 card and without the curved monitor. But two 40inchers.

I have pretty much the same specs apart from a GTX970, I am currently running a 4.9 overclock.

Make sure they fit a 'closed loop water cooler' from corsair for the I7 6700, especially when overclocked.

Also I have an LG 34 Widescreen curved monitor running highest resolution via 'display port' no problem


Mine is superb with P3Dv3.2, NGX, REX 4 at UK2000 Airports & Orbx.... enjoy
