  1. OK so this has turned into an R7-2700x build! Italic are parts I am reusing: CPU R7 2700X (not OCing) CPU H/S Stock GPU EVGA GTX 1080Ti Black Edition OR SC2 OR FTW3 M/B Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero RAM Compatible 32GB 3200MHz kit ??? Storage 2X Samsung 860 Evo 500GB PSU Corsair TX-850 (5+ yo) Case Coolar Master CM690II OS Windows 10 Monitor Acer XB271HU 27" 1440p 165Hz GSync IPS Yoke CH Yoke Rudder CH Rudder HOTAS ??? Really need advise re a 32GB 3200MHz compatible memory kit. Anyone running 32GB Corsair LPX on Asus X470 boards?
  2. Does anyone know a good guide for installing X-Plane 10 and 11 on Linux? I'm getting nowhere with Linux Mint 19 - can't get the installer to run! OK update... I got the installer running! https://www.x-plane.com/kb/install-x-plane-10-dvds/ Just wondering if I will need any additional libraries?
  3. For my next R2700X build I'm torn between: EVGA 1080Ti SC Black Edition £665 EVGA 1080Ti SC2 £695 Previously, more than 12 months ago the SC2 could have been found on offer for around d £660. I'm guessing the 11## will be overpriced from the start when they're released(???). I'm wondering if either the SC or SC2 will have a more significant price drop ahead, or after the release of the t11## cards than currently?
  4. So any tips for setting up X-Plane on a separate drive in Linux?
  5. I think i'll give Linux Mint 19 a try. Q7) When settiing up Linux is there an advantage to putting X-plane on a separate hard disk or SSD to the OS like with Windows?
  6. My go-to distro has been Linux Mint + Xfce but I haven't been using it for the last 6 months.
  7. Q5) Do gaming orientated distros like Fedora Games Spin provide any advantages for running X-plane? (If yes, which would you recommend?) Q6) Any recommendations for Linux desktops that work particularly well with X-Plane, or is this a non issue? (E.g. in the past I've hear that Xfce has a smaller memory footprint than some other desktops.)
  8. Q1) What are the best linux distros for running X-Plane and why? Q2) Can I expect compatibility issues with 3rd party developers like Flight Factor when trying to install addons? Q3) Can I expect frame rate hit under Linux? Q4) Can I expect a frame rate hit using Linux NVIDIA drivers?
  9. I'm looking for a new 1440p display for flightsim use - DCS2.5 and X-Plane11. Budget is up to £400, only considering 16:9 displays, assuming at this price range IPS are less suitable (???), and not convinced curved displays are worthwhile for 16:9. Here are some panels, all VA other than the 1st one... no manufacturer info on input lag: Acer EB321QUR 75Hz 1ms £250 Acer B326HUL 60Hz 5ms £315 AOC Q3277PQ 60Hz 4ms £200 AOC Q3279VWF 75Hz 5ms £385 BenQ EW3270ZL 60Hz 4ms £270 BenQ PD3200Q 60Hz 4ms £420 HP Omen 32" 75Hz 5ms £320 Have any suggestions of your own? Or can you convince me tom spend more for higher refresh rate? Most people I've asked have suggested that a lower refresh rate - 60Hz - is compensated by higher LOD in flightsims.
  10. So is everyone confident this system will give me 144p at least 60Hz in DCS v2.5 and XP11 (and I suppose P3D v4)?
  11. Requirement: # 1440p single display # DCS 2.5 # X-Plane11 Considering the following build although I might wait for prices of the 2600X and X470 boards to come down a bit (... as for RAM - we live in hope!): # CPU Ryzen 5 2600X (not planning to OC since gains seem marginal) # M/B Asus Prime X470-Pro # RAM Corsair LPX 32GB (2X16) DDR4-3200 # GPU GTX1070 under £400 or GTX1080 under £500 ??? # Display 27" 60Hz or 32" LED TV ??? # SSD Samsung 860 Evo 500GB (OS + sims) # PSU Corsair RM750x or reuse 6+ yo 850W PSU ??? # Case reuse Cooler Master CM690II ??? All thoughts on this welcome, particularly interested in getting the right GPU for this build. Space limitations mean multi-monitor probably a no no, waiting for next gen VR.
  12. Q1) My choices for HOTAS under about £150, any thoughts on these? £40 Games Power JS285 Flight Control System £90 Thrustmaster T.160000M FCS HOTAS £120 Logitech X52 H.O.T.A.S. £150 Logitech X52 Pro H.O.T.A.S. Q2) What is your own favourite stick and throttle?
  13. OK so on a similar theme was looking at mATX boards to fit in this case: £115... Asrock Z170M Extreme4 £125... Asus Maximus VIII Gene (Z170) £135... Asrock Z270M Extreme4 £170... Asus Z270 StrixG Q) Is it worth considering the Z170 boards for a i5-7600K build? (I'd consider going for a Z170 + i5-6600K but noone is doing deals on the 6600K!)
  14. What do you guiys think about the Silverstone Sugo SG09?
  15. OK some info might help! Q) What's the best deal out of these Mini-ITX boards for an i5-7600K OCing build? £130... Z170... Asrock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac £140... Z170... Asus Z170I Pro Gaming £150... Z270... Asrock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming-ITX/ac £160... Z170... Asus Maximus VIII Impact £170... Z270... Asus ROG Strix Z270-I Gaming
