Hey, what is best for Prepar3d: i5 9400f with RTX 2060 6GB and 32gb RAM

or

i5 9400f with RTX 2060 Super 8gb and 16gb RAM?

Hi,

 

I would go for the latter option. I think the VRAM advantage on the GPU  in your second option will pay more dividends with 8Gb VRAM.

I have 16BG RAM on my system running P3D v4 and v5 and this works just fine on my system. 32Gb RAM is certainly a nice to have but not absolutely essential.

 

Happy shopping!

I agree the future is going to be more VRAM the better.
