  1. Not sure about your current PSU but if you see a cheap deal of a good PSU then might want to get one. A good PSU might last a very long time. My last PSU was from Corsair TX750, lasted 12 years and it wasn't even broken. I just upgraded to Seasonic 850 Modular.
  2. Wait for the new AM5 from AMD or 13th Gen Intel. Then coupled that with DDR5 and next gen Nvidia or AMD GPU. Probably by the end of the year you will see a clearer picture in terms of pricing and availability. If the next gen Nvidia or AMD card is not a substantial upgrade for the 3000 series (Nvidia) or 6000 series (AMD) then you can get them at a lower price than now.
  3. How about if I bought my MSFS on Steam, can I buy stuff from MS market place?
  4. Thanks all. When I buy 3rd party addon like Flightbeam, Orbx, FlyTampa; does it matter whether I buy my MSFS on Steam or MS store?
  5. Hi all, I have been on P3D and wanting to try MSFS and now steam is having a sale but I dont know which platform to get it? Should I go to Steam or Microsoft store which also has a sale now? Which of the 2 platfroms offer the fastest update and simplicity? Thanks
  6. I am using Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 also with Meshify case but I live in a tropical place, ambient temp of 30c so it is on the hotter side. I use Noctua AF12-25 for the AIO as well, I also use curve optimiser. On idle it is around 40c and on load it is around 75-80c.
  7. B550, the reason is because the next AMD socket would be AM5. The difference between B550 and X570 is the PCI gen 4 slots for NVME SSD. With B550 you can only have 1 PCI-E Gen 4 for your NVME while X570, you can have 2 PCI-E gen 4 NVME. I had to make the same choice a year ago with my 5800x. Save your money for the next platform and 1x PCI-E gen 4 for NVME is more than enough IMO. I got myself Strix B550-F Wi-Fi version.
  8. Hi Guys, I am almost pulling the trigger to get a new card but cannot decide between 6800xt or 3080. I am only on P3D v5 now and thinking to get MSFS on day. As you know 3080 only has 10Gb Vram and with DX12 I am concern if that will be enough. Ray tracing itself is not something that i have to have since I hardly play any other games. Any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks!
  9. I think, you need the A320 Basepack and ONLY A321SL. You dont need to purchase the A320SL if you dont want to fly it. So 140 + 60. If you get the bundle then 140 + 80 and you get All the SL.
  10. How's the VRAM? MIA and FLL is dreadful on VRAM
  11. Agree on the temp. When I was on Intel temp was never a concern but then moved to AMD I was surprised. But then again my AIO was 10 years old, Corsair H100i. Changed to Arctic Freezer II 240 and did some tweaking and I was happy. Now around about 80c on full load while I live in a tropical country with ambient temp at noon is around 30c. At night when my air-condionter is ON then it helps as well. I tweaked the PPT, EDC and TDC. All performed well now, no stutter and runs cool.
  12. Do note that on V5 certain products such as LVR KFLL, KMIA and FSDT KORD and FT KLAS, you need to turn down the texture resolution to 1024x1024 otherwise you won't have enought VRAM
  13. I can give you a bit of answer to point #3. I am using B550 with 5800X. I was intel for 2 decades and switched to AMD so I had much to learn with PBO and curve optimiser. Glad to say that all my efforts of reading resulted in good outcome. When I got the mainboard I had to update my BIOS through a BIOS Flash with USB stick. For the other points about GPU, I am not sure if your card will be sufficient for V5. But then again you are only running at 1080p, perhaps it could since I am only using 1070 on 4k display with a moderate settings and i get 35-30FPS with FSL. Of course the best is to get a GPU with high VRAM for v5.
