Long time lurker checking in

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

I've been a long time lurker on avsim and decided it was finally time for me to check in with the community.

 

I've been simming for a few years now. Always enjoy it. Started out with just default FSX aircraft... then discovered the great world of payware add-on aircraft. That has been quite unhealthy for my wallet ;)

 

For the past while, I had been swimming using my laptop -- a MacBook Pro 2015 with the dual core i5 and iris graphics.  I thought it was doing OK, till i finally pulled the trigger on building a custom rig with a quad core i5 at 5 Ghz and a GTX 1070. The difference was incredible... night and day doesn't do it justice. Now I know what 35fps looks like :)

 

Looking forward to now getting to participate in all the discussions instead of just being a bystander!

It's an Asetek radiator with an Arctic Cooling fan. Temps rarely leave the high 60s. Very pleased with it.
