New computer for Prepare3d

Recommended Posts

Hello all

     I was wondering if anyone out there could recommend a good computer to replace my 6 year old Dell.    I have been looking at Alienware, Cyperpowerpc, and HP

I have a budget off around 1800.00       and building one is not an option considering i am a computer moron,

All i want to run is the following  

Active Sky weather
EGLL Scenery



thanks for all your help and advice in advance

You might consider buying a refurbished Dell XPS. I did and don't regret it. Overclocking is limited on the XPS system I bought, but truly, I don't need it. Here's an example for those with limited funds:

Dell refurbished Desktops

Dell Alienware deals

You'd want at least 16GB memory and a 1070 or 1080 Nvidia video card. As mentioned, you won't have much in the way of overclocking, but it will run P3D very well. (One year warranty included). I would also prefer Intel i7 CPU (i7-8700K). Some are new, but scratch and dent models.
