New VR PC for P3D v4.5 / FS2020

Recommended Posts


I´m planning to Setup a new Rig for P3D v4.5 and the upcoming FS2020.

The Flightsimulator will be used exclusively in VR ( Oculus Rift S ).

The PC itself will serve as a platform for Flightsimulators only, no other Applications will be run on this System.

Primary, the Simulator will be used in conjunction with PMDG 747 / FS2Crew / complex Scenery ( Airports ) / Active Sky / Ultimate Traffic 2, so basically in a classic Airliner-Environment.

At present, my System consists of the following Components:

i7 4770k

MSI Z45 Gaming


Gigabyte 980ti 6GB VRAM

WIN10 1803


The Performance with the current System is kind of "ok", so my Intention is to significantly improve VR-Performance ( smoothness / fluidity ) with the upcoming System.


Currently, my initial Setup-Idea is as follows:

i9 9900k ( overclocking recommended? )

Appropriate Mainboard ( which one is advisable? Should have built in WLAN )

64GB RAM ( which Standard / Speed? )

Geforce 2080S 8GB VRAM ( is there an advisable Manufacturer? )

Appropriate Power-Supply ( how many Watts are recommendable? )

WIN10 1909


Would this System ensure a significant Performance boost compared to the current Setup?

Would it be worth to wait until the i9 10900k is released ( read somewhere that the single Core Performance is at best 4% faster / Problems with heating )?

Is a Geforce 2080 Ti worth the extraordinary Price-Tag?


Thanks very much for any Tips in Advance.

Best regards,
