New Machine, is it well balanced?

Recommended Posts

Hello people,

Let me introduce first.  My name is Ricardo and i live in Portugal. 

Beeing an huge fan of Simulator, since the old Fs2002 🙂 but not a great pilot, i like to spend some of my free time fliying and learn a little bit more.

Right now i have a laptop ( HP Omen i7 7700 HQ and GTX1060 MaxQ) but i would like to make a change for a desktop machine, and of course, i have many doubts. Here is the machine that i am planning:

INTEL I5 9600K - 250,90€
MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PLUS - 139,90€
Gigabyte GTX1660 Ti Gaming OC 6GB   - 327,90€
Crucial 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 3000MHz Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB - 103,90€
CoolerMaster Masterwatt 650W Gold - 79,90€
CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML120L - 56,90€
CoolerMaster MasterBox 5 Pro - 75,90€
Crucial MX500 M.2 2280 500GB - 75,90€
Corsair K55 RGB - 55,90€
AOC C32G1 Curved - 299,90€

Total Cost: 1461,00€

Doubts:

1) Is this machine well balanced for P3D V4 and/or X Plane 11?

2) In your opinion what change you made to this machine? i am limited to around 1500€ right now.

3) The 1660TI will "handle" in the future 2 more AOC C32G1?

 

Best regards,

I would recommend at least an 8GB graphics card if not higher. Either a 1080Ti, RTX 2070 or RTX 2080.

Especially if you plan to use VR in the future.

You don't need a fancy keyboard, a standard €10 will do,and a Notcua cooler is probably better and cheaper than water cooling

Hello Jude,

 

8Gb Gpu only in GTX1070, all the other will blow my budget.

Air Cooler, i am watching Noctua 14S, i need to know if it fits in my case.
