    Oldtimer needs PC buying help

    Thanks again guys, I upgraded the PSU to Corsair TX850M. @Ray: Unfortunately this vendor is out of 1080Ti’s, hence they’re offering a “free upgrade” to the 2080. Is the 2080 not as good? Thanks also for the monitor info, I may have to wait a bit for that as my budget is being consumed by the pc itself;-) I’m still not sure if 4K is the way to go regarding performance, do these new video cards cope well with 4K in P3D? Cheers, Pete

    Oldtimer needs PC buying help

    Thanks guys, this is really helpful. I’ll make changes to HDD and cooling. Any suggestions regarding monitor resolution vs. size? I went for the 2080 RTX in anticipation of the new texture capabilities (forget the technical term) making their way into P3D next year. Cheers, Pete
  3. Hi there, I’ve been here at Avsim and simming for over 20 years, and after 8 years without upgrades, I’m now ready to buy a new system. Unfortunately I haven’t been keeping up with hardware changes, so please excuse my ignorance. I’m looking to buy a Sim-system only (Prepar3d, FSX, X-Plane), one-Monitor setup, networked to one other client pc (my current old system). I plan to purchase it with a 30% overclock. After reading many posts, below please see my selection towards a hopefully well performing sim-pc. I’d love to hear some feedback on the config further below, and also have some questions: Monitor: What resolution is best for simming? I’m soo behind here, I’d like a 30 inch or so monitor, but is 4K always better for simming, and at what resolution and/or what MHz? I’m hoping something in the $350 range if that’s realistic. HDD Combo: Is a combo advisable, or would it be better to get 2 separate drives? Also, can Prepared be on the same drive as the OS? Config: CPU:Intel® Core™ Processor i7-9700K 3.60GHZ 12MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1151 FAN:CoolerMaster MASTERLIQUID ML120R RGB 120mm Dual Chamber CPU Liquid Cooling System w/ Copper Cold Plate HDD:500GB WD Blue SSD + 2TB SATA III Hard Drive Combo (Plus 32GB Intel Optane Memory SSD Acceleration 4X Faster (Primary OS Drive) MEMORY:16GB (8GBx2) DDR4/3200MHz Dual Channel Memory (GSKILL Ripjaws V MOTHERBOARD:ASUS TUF Z390-Plus Gaming (Wi-Fi)ATX w/ RGB, USB 3.1, 2PCIe x16, 4 PCIe x1, 6 SATA3, 2 M.2 SATA/PCIe NETWORK:Onboard Gigabit LAN Network OS:Windows 10 Home (64-bit Edition) OVERCLOCK:Ultimate OC (Ultimate Overclock 30% or more) POWERSUPPLY:800 Watts - Standard 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready VIDEO:GeForce® RTX 2080 8GB GDDR6 (Turing) [VR Ready] (Single Card) Thanks for all your help in advance guys, Pete

    PMDG 777 unreal acceleration during takeoff and climb

    The 777's engines are ridiculously powerful. If you see them depart from EHAM, they're likely loaded up quite heavily for long flights (both fuel, pax, cargo). I personally like to use the 777 on short flights in Japan and use appropriate fuel, but load up on pax and cargo, AND use 20% derated thrust, which often gives me a takeoff run of about 40-45 seconds 🙂 Cheers, Pete

    errors when closing the Sims

    I am also encountering this crash upon exiting FSX SP2 with the 777 and 747QOTS. I haven't flown the NGX since the recent updates, only the MD11 and that one works just fine. Hopefully PMDG finds a fix for this. Cheers, Pete

    Serious Question - Upgraded FSX/P3D Maddog MD-80

    Hi Dave, believe it or not, I was still following this as a self proclaimed Maddog nerd ;-) Just a quick question, the youtube channel you linked to doesn't have any content - am I looking in the wrong place? Thanks for sharing the great news! Cheers, Pete
  10. I'm not a screenshot poster, but every once in a while my old pc surprises me with the performance I still get in FSX SP2. BTW, I looooooooooooove the CRJ :-) Cheers, Pete

    DA Fokker in widescreen

    Thanks for sharing Staffan, this is (was) a fantastic aircraft, I agree - too bad they never delivered on the VC. It's been so long, I don't currently have it installed in FSX, do you use FSX or P3D? Just curious if it works in FSX before digging up the good old Fokker. Cheers, Pete

    Search BVB Airbus FsLabs

    He's looking for a Germanwings repaint in one of Germany's soccer clubs colors (BVB - or as soccer fans in the US call them Dortumund. Versuch mal nur nach "Dortumund" oder "Germanwings: zu suchen. Ich glaube aber es gibt kein repaint in BVB Farben und/oder als Mannschafts-Airbus. Wenn Du auf der FS Labs Seite nichts findest, dann kann ich Dir leider nur google vorschlagen. Vielleicht hat ja jemand dieses repaint gemacht, nur nicht oeffentlich zur verfuegung gestellt. Viel Glueck beim suchen. Beste Gruesse, Peter
