Hello guys.
 
I would like to hear from you to help me choose a good graphic card to fit the following configuration:
(regardless of price)

Using Windows 10, Prepar3d 3.3
 
INTEL - I7 6700K
ASUS ATX B150 PRO GAMING / AURA
DDR4 2400MHz 16GB - HyperX FURY
CORSAIR 850W ATX 80PLUS RM850X
KINGSTON HyperX SSD 240GB SATA III 2.5' FURY 6.0GB / S
GRAPHIC CARD ???????
 
Thanks.

GTX 1080... but wait a few weeks, they are sold out almost everywhere, and the ones available are being sold at scalper-prices.

Get over it guys and stop wasting money on a 1080 its not going to massively improve P3D. ESP code is CPU bound render engine and the GPU may still improve slight frames but nothing special. Save your money get a 980ti and notch down those sliders.

Even better yet, go with a 970. I've had both a 980ti and a 970 in this box and there was no noticeable performance difference. Nada, zero, none.....

Agreed with above. If you only run flight sims then a 1080 is a bit of an overkill. The money can be better spent elsewhere.

Why get a last-gen card (especially the flawed 970)? If the 1080 is too rich for you (it is for me), consider a 1070 or 1060. Runs cooler and uses less power than the Maxwell cards.

 

Cheers!

I've got a 980Ti before the latest generation came out and I'm very happy with it. I don't see any incentive to trade up, even with a 4K monitor on the way.
