  1. Evening,

    I have just taken the plunge and purchased an oculus rift (on offer) to get into VR as I have been seeing a lot of positive comments around it recently. 

    I only tend to fly X-Plane 11 - IFR and predominantly with the Zibo 737 / Flight Factor A320. I use vsync and set FPS to 30fps and have really smooth sim with no stutters, am certainly not a FPS chaser and more than happy with 30fps.

    My system is;

    i7-6700k OC 4.6GHz stable, Asus ROG Max VIII Ranger Z170 , 8GB RAM, Win10, GTX 980Ti, 32'' monitor 1080p - 1920-1080 at 60hz.

    Following the move to VR, I understand my 980Ti may not be good enough, so I am looking to upgrade my GPU. The million-dollar question is, should I go for the RTX 2070 or RTX 2080. GTX 1080Ti is out of the question, because I can only find them for around £900 in the UK, and both the RTX's mentioned are cheaper than that plus have an element of futureproofing (for a while, anyway).

    I really don’t mind paying the more for the 2080, but if the 2070 would be sufficient, then I am happy with that.

    What are your thoughts?



  2. Hello, 

    I am considering taking the jump to a GTX 1080 Ti as they are currently on sale with around a £70 saving.

    I currently use;

    i7 6700k OC to 4.4 Ghz

    6GB Asus strix 980Ti 

    It will be running a 1080p 1920x1080 on Windows 10 and P3D V4.3, currently running set to 50hz and frame rate unlimited which locks at 50fps. 

    I mainly fly in airliners with addon scenery, so some quite hard hitting fps consumers. 

    My question is, on paper, will i see an improvement in performance with P3D? 

    Many thanks


  3. Hello, 

    I am wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a 30hz native monitor - anything between 27"-32", reason being, I used to have a monitor that ran native on 30hz and was perfect for P3D, unfortunately my son pulled it off my desk and smashed it so had to throw away. I cannot afford £400 for the same monitor now. 

    Budget - £200 maximum if possible, have looked everywhere and cant find one that is native to 30hz. 1080p will do just fine.

    Thanks in advance
