Cheap, Powerful PC

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am currently running FSX Gold Edition on my laptop. However, it isn't very powerful which makes it impossible to run PMDG 737NGX and the Aerosoft Airbus.

 

I found this on eBay, it has no operating system which is fine because you can buy Windows 7 cheaply now:

I was wondering if that PC would be powerful enough to run FSX/P3D at a good fps with addon scenery and complex addon aircraft (such as the PMDG 737NGX)

 

If not could you please help me find one that will work at a similar price.

 

Many thanks,

Ben

Intel LGA1151 Motherboard: LGA1151 DDR4 Intel USB 3.0 PCI-E 3.0 MB Intel Core  I7 LGA1151 Processors: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz - 4.2GHz CPU

 

There is a configurator at the bottom.. See if you can upgrade the cooler to that water cooler for additional 65bucks  so you can overclock if required.

You don't have a video card selected.  Plan to buy that seperately? look for the GTX 10xx card that you can afford...

Unfortunately, that is junk.  Are you able to build yourself?

This site seems to tell me that it should be powerful enough to run it:

 

 What is listed on the Jetline link and what you've listed on Ebay are not the same CPU.

The machine you linked to on ebay has a 4790 cpu, NOT a 4790k, and only has onboard graphics, not a dedicated video card.  In short - junk

You'd be better off buying this, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FAST-GAMING-EDITING-PC-LIQUID-COOLED-OVERCLOCKED-CHEAP-/201659441599?hash=item2ef3d6e1bf:g:oUEAAOSwFe5XybM2

 

then buying a GTX970 or 1060 to plug into it

It would, with the graphic card, however, it would cost a fortune in shipping and customs charges from the USA

would be about the best you will find with a 6700k.  However this will not overclock due to the motherboard

Oh yeah..and that's not Good.. I hope Ben would look at the specs of the item and procure it from someone closer to him rather than from someone far away. Mea Culpa!
