Graphics card upgrade or not?

Recommended Posts

Greetings, in my pc currently i have a pair of gtx970 in sli mode. I am looking forward for an upgrade and thinking for a gtx1060 6gb ram because my budget can't afford a gtx 1080 or even a gtx 1070 (both 8gb ram).

In terms of graphics performance will it better from my current sli configuration or should i leave it this way?

i have  p3d v4.1 installed on my pc.

specs

i7 5820k @4.4ghz

mobo gigabyte x99 ud4p

ram 16gb

2 x ssd 500gb (one for p3d)

1 hd 1tb

2 x gtx970 4gb sli

psu 800w

What do you usually fly?

VFR, IFR, PMDG? ORBX? Photoreal?

How much you care about looks and FPS?

If the above answers are mostly YES then i would go for a minimum 1070 8GB.

Yes in almost (usually ifr and sometimes vfr, ifly ngx-747, orbx textures and vector and landclass) all of the above Elias, guess the upgrade has to wait for a bit                                 longer...................................

Generally speaking, SLI has no advantage when it comes to running P3D. So, if I were in your shoes, I'd upgrade my current video card setup to a single 8 GB or even better 11 GB video memory card. Going to 11 GB will allow you to take advantage of the increased scenery LOD radius that P3Dv4.x has to offer.

Cheers, Ed

I would sell the cards in insomnia.gr and buy a 1070 or 1080. I think you would be ok from H/W for now. Your CPU would be adequate. I have 1070 with 3770k@4.5 and i am relatively ok.

Then find money for the addons.
