New Jetine Sim Computer with PMDG 777 @ 5Ghz

Recommended Posts

Here is a short video (shot from i-phone5) of my new Jetline Sim computer.  Jetline did the build and installed P3D, all the PMDG Boeings, all FlyTampa airports in US GSX, a slew of FSDT airports, FSUIPC, V-pilot Active Sky 2016, ORBX,  They did all the configurations and OC'd it to 5 GHz. These guys are experts in Flight Simulaton and surely know how to build computers that are optimized for FSX and P3D.

Specs:

Intel 7700K, Titan X Pascal card, 32 GB ram, MSI 270 board.  I added a 40" UHDTV as main monitor.  All settings pretty maxed out.  Graphics are stuning - crisp and clear.  I am getting 35 fps with PMDG planes at FlyTampa airoprts and NYC area, and >50 fps at other areas.  New 747 looks great.

Ouch.  With the debut of the 1080ti, this is some unfortunate timing.

Whatever you will buy, still if you max things out you gonna get OOM. Period.

The Jetliner folks are great. I've had one of their builds for around two years now - very happy with the product and the service.

I think the titan x may out perform the 1080 ti.  So no regrets here.  The visuals with the uhdtv are stunning.  My reason for posting this is just to show that a real high end system can handle the new pmdg 747 with absolutely no issues and excellent frame rates - even with serious add on sceneries.  So there is hope out there for a painless flight sim experience.  My last 4 year old computer crashed daily so I had to upgrade

Lots of stutters in that video, typical of P3D. Seems it doesn't matter how much money or hardware you throw at it.

I have friends with Jetline machines, all very happy.   The stutters were probably from the IPhone5 recording. 

I have not had an OOM, since going to v3.4.  knock on wood. Clean install of W10, and P3D.

Lots of add-ons.

Maybe since I shot the tv with an I-phone 5 that you see shutters on a replay.  But when I am flying it it sooo smooth and crystal clear

You guys do realize he was using "replay" and it stutters or jumps in spot view no matter what.  FS9 never did but FSX/P3D does.  Has nothing to do with his phone or the setup.

Congrats on your new system! Just a question...
Who told you that all of this is not possible with a bit older machine and lower specs? :biggrin: Jetliners? 
If we would focus on simming only (FSX/P3D) - this is a complete overkill that has nothing to do with texture quality, smoothness and etc. And as stated above - no amount of GHz or RAM or cash makes you safe from OOMing this all to bits. Its not the machines raw power that saves you from stutters or OOMs, its the selection of add-ons (PMDG 747 + Flytampa + ORBX) keeps you safe + P3Ds ability to deal with VAS better.
Why I am saying this? Because it is not very cool to tell people "get a REAL powerful machine like mine or die stuttering!" Why? Cause it's bravo sierra.

So for like $6000 I could have that?

I'll pass.  Still using an ancient i7 920 at 3.8 ghz and a GTX480 and have no complaints here.

Thanks for posting - am seriously considering Jetline for my next system, so it's very helpful to see the video and hear about your experiences.  Trouble is, I'm having a hard time making the numbers add up - same thing that happens to me every time I think about buying/leasing a BMW.  Looks like a lovely experience, but... the cost!  So am more likely to do my own build.  But not decided yet and am considering.... seriously...  or have I mentioned that? :gaul:

Folks. Honestly. I built my own i7-6700k machine with a GTX 970, 16 gigs of ram and a Noctua NH-D15 air cooler that I overclocked to 4.6ghz for A LOT less than what  Jetline was gonna build it for. This was my first build and believe me when I say it, if I can do it with a little research on the net SO CAN YOU. 

I don't run any ORBX scenery because I'm more of a purist when comes to flight sim in that my main focus is the accuracy of the simulation and procedures. I just like to fly.  I usually fly too high to really take advantage of scenery anyways. It would be a waste for me. For those that fly mainly GA, yeah, I get it. Great scenery really makes it.

As you can imagine I don't EVER suffer from OOM's or stuttering or low frame rates with what I do. Not bragging, just saying.

I say this only to remind people of the fact that if you're gonna spend serious money on a system and you're on a budget you can have a great system that's gonna last quite a while if you build it yourself  instead of spending your money to have someone else build it. That extra money you're  spending to have someone else build it for you is much better spent, in my opinion, on components. 

But hey, if money's no object Jetline builds great systems and it certainly is easy but I will say this: I thoroughly enjoyed building mine. Nothing like doing a bench build prior to putting everything in the case and getting a good POST! Quite a feeling of accomplishment.

My two pennies.

Agree that there's nothing like doing your own build.  On the other hand, I've been so flat-out with work the past two months that I've barely got any time for simming at all - it's only this week that I've been able to get back to a beta-testing project I've been neglecting, and the best I can manage is a series of brief engine ground runs to test a mixture setting.  So when I think about building, I also wonder where I'm going to find the time, and the idea of having somebody set up a machine for me that all tuned and ready to go out of the box is pretty appealing.  As noted, I'll probably wind up building the next rig myself, because I"m reluctant to spend more than I have to.  But paying a premium so you can just go flying is a kind of value, too.

I don't have the time for DIY projects. I have two Jetline System computers right now. An older one that I am typing this post on. And the newer one that I am flying the 747 on as I write this post.

I find it amusing that people who can spend time doing anywhere from 2 to 16 hour virtual airplane flights "don't have time" to research the components necessary, ordering them online then spending a couple of hours assembling and installing necessary software.

If you had the components at home you could go from a pile of parts to a fully functional computer in less time than it takes to fly ORD-LHR.

I would never dream of spending the money that they ask on a system that I can build for less...

Jeff, you have a very good point there :)

All he did was show us his new set up. Sadly it turns into how much? and blar blar blar....I would....

If your comfortable building your own PC, great, good for you. If not then how much he or she want to spend is down to the customer. 

Can we not be happy for the guy even if some of us would not take that route?

Come on guys!!!! not everyone wants or could build there own PC or like myself I like the idea of if there is any problems and I give it back or call them. 

I buy my PC's from Overclockers UK, Each to our own. 

The OP has a great PC and good for him.

 

PC parts are always a nightmare, my 780 2 weeks ago went pop, I was thinking of buying a 1080 and the card was £800 2 weeks later £620. I was very lucky and got my 1070 with19% off from the week before all because the TI is coming. But if the 1180 comes out 4 months then the 1080TI will be "cheap" your never going to win.

But a 7700 @5 and a Titan pas X is going to last him years. Good for him I say. His money to earn and spent how he likes.

Happy for him.

I absolutely agree. As I said in my post, if you've got the money and don't mind paying the extra to have someone build it for ya that's great. The OP system is very nice indeed and I am happy for him. Don't get me wrong. To each his own. 

My only point was that when I wanted a new system I looked at Jetline and seriously considered buying from them but when I priced out the components I wanted I thought, hey, what the heck, I'm a pretty capable individual, I'm gonna do this myself and save a good chunk of change. Just wanted to make people aware of the fact that this IS an option if you'd prefer to build it yourself and put that money saved into better components. 

But again, great for the OP. VERY nice system.

h89-left.jpgMy first build, a Heathkit H89, I assembled in 1981 at a cost of just under $2000.  That was much cheaper than the IBM PC I purchased a few years later at about $3200.  My most recent build last spring is a i7-6700K 4.7GHz OC liquid cooled 16GB DDR 3400MHz with GTX980Ti including Win10 OS just under $2000.  I've had my share of retail boxes during the years in between but at the engineering company I started working with 20 yrs ago they built all their workstations for high performance CAD that it seemed just a waste of money to buy retail.  It also adds something immeasurable to the pleasure of the hobby that I built this system myself.

A couple is two hours. You are telling me you are going to build a computer and install the necessary software in two hours. It takes two hours just too install Windows and update it.

Ha!  Yeah, didn't mean to suggest that.  Though y'know... if I could, it'd solve my price/value problem <heads off to find a good BMW parts supplier...> :gaul:
