Your system seems ot be overkill, assuming that requirements are slightly higher than in V3. When they release actual sim in non-beta stage we'll be able to determine where are actual requirements with regards to performance, but man - let's face it, you have high-end beast there.

Thank you for your reply.

Performance is great atm in 3.4

Just hoping that the autogen popping and slightly blurred textures are a thing of the past in p3d v4

 

If not ide probably move to xplane  11

Keep in mind scenery isn't everything. P3D/FSX provide a very rich and rewarding experience due to the outstanding quality of the available addons found nowhere else (yet).

As far as i could see in rob Ainscough's  and matt's YouTube video autogen popping is no big thing anymore.

 

But vram 8 gb seems not to be sufficient if you want to have autogen like crazy.

I would suggest looking at increasing your disk capacity as this may hold you back from deploying more addons especially as they will get bigger due to x64.

Seems so, but it may depend on the resolution of your monitor(s).  1080p in triple setup would be fine--4k maybe not so much.

I was thinking of a 34" with an aspect ratio of 21:9. Not sure which resolution I wanna go with....2560x1080 or 3440x1440.

You only need 8GB+ VRAM if you enable "tweaks" that are not available via standard UI graphics settings.  If you stick to UI settings then 4GB VRAM "should" be enough.

Cheers, Rob.

Thank you for clarification rob. So the 8 gb of my 1080 are enough :-)
