    Change Altimeter from mbar to inHG

    Bert, would you mind sending me this gauge along with a quick run down of how to install?
  2. And I'll add to my original response... When I started trying new cards in January, the jump from my 970 to the 1070 was a decent one. I tried a single 1070, SLI 1070, a 1080 and 3 different 1080 tis. I think the 1070 is my favorite card of all of them, it packs a heck of a punch. I used both the Asus Strix and EVGA SC 1070. EVGA won me over with their customer service.
  3. 1070 or 1080 if you're running 1080p. I thought about saying go for a new motherboard, CPU and RAM but the 4790k still has life left in it.
  4. Vic beat me to it.. Russell has been around for years, I remember using FSH back when Microsoft Zone was a thing. Can't go wrong with FSH. I'm surprised to see that Russell is still at it.

    Sandy Bridge to Skylake

    I'm happy to have been of assistance.

    Sandy Bridge to Skylake

    Greg, I'll say this much.. Going from the 3820 to the 6700k was a jaw dropping experience for me. If you have any reservations as to whether or not it is worth the money, I can personally tell you that it is. P3D runs as smooth as silk for me. I typically see 60+ Frames Per Second on average and 40-50 while on the ground. 6700k @ 4.5 Gigabyte Z170 Gaming 7 16GB DDR4 2800 2x 250GB Samsung 850 Evo's. (one for W10 and one for P3D) 1TB WD Blue Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 850w Evga Platinum.

    Done with Windows 10 (unfortunately)

    FWIW, I built a new system last month and took a leap of faith and purchased Windows 10. Everything works very well and I'm extremely happy with the OS.

    PSU advice

    650 is the minimum that I would personally go for, 750 or 850 being preferred. I originally went for a rm750 when I built my new system last month. A day later, newegg ran a sale on the EVGA 850W Platinum for 115 and I snatched it up. I have a very efficient PSU that has more than enough power now and later if I decide to go to an SLI set up and it also carries a 10 year warranty. The Rm750 was a good psu for the few days that I had it and was dead silent, as is my EVGA. Both get my vote.

    PMDG 787 Dreamliner

    It probably means not to expect it within the next few years. I'm sure that they would have to start from scratch and for them to develop one to their standards. If I had to guess, this would probably take 3-5 years from start to finish. The QW 787 is your best bet.
  10. Get a GPU. See the post above mine written by Martin for the explanation. If you're going to build yourself a decent computer, there is no reason not to get yourself a GPU. If money is a factor, get something on the low end to hold you over for a while.
  11. x2 I went for the Gigabyte Gaming 7. Great board, but I wish I would have gone with this Asus board. It would do everything I want it to AND would have saved me some money.

    I'm a P3Dv3 Believer!

    I sat on the sidelines until about 2 months ago and I haven't looked back. All I have is REX4 with soft clouds, ASN, Orbx Global and Vector, Aerosofts 320/32 and as of two nights ago, the Phenom 300. I've been a perfectly happy camper and I haven't looked back.. Welcome to the club.

    carenado phenom 300 with GTN 750

    Bert, can you send it my way as well? I've decided to pick up the GTN750 this weekend. Thanks.
  14. Personally, I'd go with the 6600k. You'll be able to upgrade later if you choose to do so and Skylake comes with a plethora of upgrades and changes.
