  1. Hello Have scanned various post for an answer. Can anyone confirm if Dell UltraSharp U3415W - 34.08" Curved is capable of running at 30HZ? Thanks Keithy
  2. Just wondering if anyone has an opinion. I am wanting to buy a new machine for P3D but am stuck between choosing a 4 core I7 7700k @5Ghz or a 8 core I7 7820X @4.6Ghz along with 1080Ti and 16GB Ram. The I7 7700k @5Ghz build will cost £2,400 and the I7 7820X @4.6Ghz build will cost £2800 from Scan.co.uk £400 difference I have read that the 7700 is a great chip but have been reading Avsim and P3d hardware forums and it seems the newer x series processors are also very good. I have also read from Rob Ainscough that L3 Cache is important and the 7820x has 11mb were as the 7700 has 8mb. I have also read from Rob that 7900x is giving great performance too, but I cant stretch to a 7900x only to a 7820x. I have also read that processor speed is obviously important. Hence I am looking at the 7700k at 5ghz I cannot overclock my self and the above clock speeds are the maximum that Scan.co.uk will supply for these chips so I am just wondering if anyone knows which chip would give the best FPS / performance in P3D at the following clock speeds? 4 core I7 7700k @5Ghz or 8 core I7 7820X @4.6Ghz ? Thanks in advance Keithy

    P3D v3 new PC spec.

    Hi I am just planning to make the leap from FSX to P3D V3 and after reading up on AVSIM for the last 3 nights I have come up with the following spec PC I am going to order from SCAN and had 3 questions below I was hoping for some help with. -Intel Core i7 6700K Quad Core with Hyper-threading Professionally overclocked to 4.6GHz -Asus Z170 Pro Gaming with Intel NIC and SupremeFX -16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 3000MHz -4GB EVGA GTX 980 SC ACX -2 x 250GB Samsung Evo SSD & 2TB HDD -750W Corsair RMi PSU -Microsoft Windows 7 pro 3440 x 1440 21:9 ultra-wide curved screen monitor Questions I have is 1 Do you think this would run the following add ons at a nice smooth 30 fps? FTX Global, Active Sky Next Rex 4 + Soft Clouds Traffic program PMDG 737 AND 777 Add-on airports UK2000, Aerosoft, FSDT, Fly Tampa ETC 2 Is the graphics card going to be up to the job of running the monitor at 3440 x 1440 or should I go for a 6GB card? 3 Am I better off going for a six core processor overclocked to 4.4 ghz? Any other advice appreciated Thanks in advance for any help Keithy

  7. Hello Having used fsx for 7 years I'm going to go for p3d. Have been reading forums about this but can't determine definitive answer. I am going to buy a new pc to run P3D on and am wondering if people are getting better experience with a dedicated ssd just to run P3D? Thanks

    Angle of Attack Training

    I'll surely buy the NGX training again once its completeChris Palmer, you said..."The voice over guy is rock solid, and will give us professional (we don't even consider ourselves professional) level voice overs in a 24 hour turn around, edited and ready for the video."What I want to know is why have you stopped doing the voice overs? I bought your MD-11 training and think your MD-11 voice overs were very professional and very easy / exciting to listen to..
