  1. Hi all Im currently in the process of selecting my new system components for P3d, and have no idea if i should go for Win 7/8/10 for my new rig. Can anyone tell me if Win 10 is a no go?? Cheers
  2. Thank you for taking the time to do these tests for us SAAB, much appreciated.
  3. I'm also waiting for the prices to come down a little, Im lead to believe looking at the comparison charts regarding performance, the Asus Strix is one of the best 980Ti's closely followed by the MSI 980Ti. I may go for the MSI one myself, as its slightly smaller and slightly cheaper.
  4. Hi all I'm currently in the stage of researching a system for P3d V3, I'm looking into either a G-sync monitor or a 4k monitor (28'') I've been looking into a Skylake 6700K, on an Asus ROG Z170 Maximus motherboard (or one similar), however on the website under the graphic section on the mobo it says; ''- Supports HDMI with max. resolution 4096 x 2160 @ 24 Hz - Supports DisplayPort with max. resolution 4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz'' Source Now, this leaves me confused, Am I correct in thinking that I either need a 4K/Gsync Monitor at 30hz, and use a DisplayPort? I'm confused with the whole 30hz/60hz, and now the 24hz on the motherboard. Could anyone shed any light on this for me please before I make a decision? Thanks in advance
  5. Hi Conrad, Im no expert, but id say your CPU speed is fine, 4.5GHz is a decent speed for P3D I believe. Your GPU also looks fine, and it's 4GB which is the minimum now really, you may squeeze some more fps out of a newer GPU perhaps now v3 puts more onto the GPU. Are the simulators on a SSD? Although I'm not sure what impact this has on fps (none I don't think) , but it will load the simulators faster.
  6. Hey thanks for the advice. So you would advice me to get a G-sync monitor, Maybe i'm getting confused with V-sync here but if the sim drops below 30hz/30fps? doesn't this have a negative impact? I really don't know.. Thanks for that, Ill stick with the 16GB then, makes more sense Sorry about that bro, maybe next time eh???
  7. Thanks for your help all, much appreciated. I think this is the system to go for using P3d then :smile:
  8. Thanks all, nothing you would change? Do you think i would get decent performance smoothness wise? Also, any news on how well P3D works on Windows 10 yet? Not sure if i should stick to Win7
  9. Hi guys again Ive come to my conclusion i think on my new rig specs, Please could you advise if you would change anything; Id like to achieve decent smoothness with PMDG etc. Case: NZXT H440 Black/Red Mid Tower Case MoBo: Asus ROG Maximus VIII Hero, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe/SATA3 6Gb/s, PCIe 3.0, SLi/CrossFire, HDMI, ATX Motherboard CPU: Skylake Intel Core i7 6700K CPU Overclocked to 4.6GHz Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX 240mm High Performance Multi CPU Liquid Cooler, with Corsair Link RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black, PC4-24000 (3000MHz), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 15-17-17-35, XMP 2.0, 1.35V GPU: EVGA 980Ti 6GB PSU: 850W Corsair HX850i High Performance 80+ Platinum Digital Power Supply Monitor: 28" Acer B286HK 4K Pro Monitor, LED 3840x2160, 1ms, 300cd/m², 100M:1, Speakers, DP/HDMI(MHL)/DVI Kind regards
  10. Hi Jeroen Thanks for that, I havent got the monitor yet, it will be a 4K one for sure, so you think this may be a good choice? kind regards
  11. Good evening all, I'm just doing research on different systems currently to run P3d, and sorry if it's all you keep reading.. I am lead to believe a good system to run it is; Mobo- ASUS 7170-A CPU- Intel i7-6700K Skylake – Over clocked to 4.6 GHz GPU – GTX 980Ti 6 GB H100i Watercooler 16GB ram DDR4, 3000Mhz 1TB SSD Windows 7/10? I am looking for positive and negative points on the above system please, I am aware that P3D runs on one core mostly (although I know LM have adapted this a little so it uses more), So would I be wise to spend the buck on the Skylake or would I be just as well off with the 4790K/5930K? Obviously I want P3d to run as smooth as possible with highish settings (don't we all haha) Any help appreciated, Kind regards
  12. I guess they have a small team of beta testers. They obviously need to be careful of who they select to beta test using various degrees of equipment i would imagine. Lets just hope some kind of update is given soon. #fingerscrossed
  13. I wouldnt be suprised if it's already in beta.
  14. Even Emirates have started using 777-300ER on the OMDB-KLAX flight, which i wasnt sure could do the flight full of pax but obviously can. If thats EKs longest flight then theorerically they have no real need for the 200ER? Source: http://fr24.com/UAE215
  15. Just wondering if anyone has done this yet? Would be a brill paint! :lol:
  16. Hello guys this may be a long shot but does anyone fancy having a go at this livery please ??737-700 WLcheers guys , adamreed@orange.net
