Thomas Creel September 21, 2014 7:29:56 PM PCIe 2.0 x16 = 8,000 MB/s = 64,000,000,000 bits PCIe 3.0 x16 = 16,000 MB/s = 128,000,000,000 bits GTX 980 Memory Clock = 7,000 Mb/s = 7,000,000,000 bits As you can see, PCIe 2.0 x16 can EASILY handle the mere 7 billion bits with its 64 billion bit threshold. quote name="frosty777" post="3134436" timestamp="1418650636"]I would wait... 970GTX is PCI 3.0 - and I don´t think your Asus P8P67 supports that? Go for Skylake, new mobo, new GPU, new, new, new...! I was concerned by this until I researched it further. Here is an post from tomshardware forum about the topic. "
  2. Would prefer if I could just get away with an GPU upgrade. My specs; i7 2600k @ 4.8 asus p8p67 pro 3.1 16gb gskill ddr3 1600 1tb seagate barracuda 10krpm geforce 570gtx superclocked 1.2gb So my question is; I want to do an upgrade on my system this winter but I don't want to spend a whole lot of money. I have been considering an 970GTX, but am wondering am I going to be seeing an noticable improvement in FSX if i do so? or am I wasting my money and should be waiting another year for a full system upgrade and hope by then they will release hardware to run FSX the way we all want it to run......
  3. Wondering about migrating to prepar3d....... I currently use FSX and am wondering if I would run into performance issues if I installed them both on the same machine - or should it be one or the other?
  4. The last time I checked forums were for discussion... if you guys want photo only join flickr or photobucket. /end
  5. Jeesh!!,,, most people spend endless hours tweaking to get rid of blurries - you add them in!way to go, those screenshots look incredible.. Seems as you have the perfect combination!
