If you are building a new system, the common wisdom is to select an i7-6700K CPU and a GTX 970 GPU or better.

 

Read the Hardware forum, here at Avsim  :wink:

 

Anything less, and you will not get the same performance..  your call..

My current system has an AMD fx-6300 and a GT 730. I probably buy a new computer in 2/3 years. The GT 730 is enough for the PMDG 777 and airport scenery?

Yes. Until recently I was using a GTX550 with no problems so your GT730 should be fine. Your CPU exceeds PMDG's minimum requirements too. The 777 is well optimised and is not particularly demanding on processing power.

Careful... a 550ti is a way faster card than a 730 :Shame On You:

Not according to the comparisons I've seen. Anyway the thing is you try it and see. If it's not good enough then upgrade.

 

Cut the finger wagging please.

Yes empirical evidence suggests that Kevin is right, Bert. I can attest that the two cards are comparable in terms of performance with FSX.

Sorry about the finger... no disrespect intended... I just went by the published card specs and the 730 is an entry level card.

 

But as you say, you can try it and see  :wink:

I finally have the T7 and how do I activate the plane?

There should be a key number someplace on the DVD box. You will be asked for that key at some point during the I installation or the first time you load the plane into FSX and try to fly it, look at, or whatever. Enter the key number and the plane will be activated.
