  1. you can buy a windows 7 pro key cheap from just about anywhere online, also google windows 7 pro iso downloads, you can get those anywhere for free, i bought a windows 10 pro key for 10 bucks and also found windows 7 pro keys for 10 bucks. sadly any new hardware won';t work with windows 7 anymore.
  2. you really need to have at least 24-32 gb of ram or more, x-plane 11 will continue to be demanding on ram.i plan on upgrading to 64gb when the 9700k is released.
  3. you would be better off getting a 7700k with a gtx 1080, always spend more towards your graphics card than your cpu, the trade off is better with a 1080 vs a 1070.p3d will get better use out of the 1080 rather than the 8700k over the 7700k. both the 7700k and 8700k can both do 4.8ghz out of the box, with a large majority doing 5ghz.i made the mistake of going from a 7700k to an amd 1800x. when i should have kept the 7700k at 5ghz. i plan on changing my 1800x out for a 9700k if i am still living when it's released next year, only because i already have a 1080ti. keep in mind the z270 platform has nowhere to go as well as the z370, when the 9700k is released, a new motherboard will probably be required again.
  4. when is the a320 gonna be available again? flight factor said soon, i have missed it
  5. 500gb ssd is plenty for most people, i run 3 500gb ssd's and only use about 125 gb for x-plane, mechanical drives are so outdated, i wouldn't use them unless you are using massive ortho scenery, then a large 5-10 tb mechanical drive would be good, the price is also dropping. forget raid 0 , unless you want to take a chance of losing all your hard work, 2 drives in raid 0 is already risky, but running 5 is crazy.
  6. v2 is working great as of right now, i am sad to hear that, that's terrible.v2 is also the best efb that gives amazing sids and stars in the planning, i hope avlasoft efb would build in a flight planner.
  7. efass works for x-plane and p3d v4
  8. ummm ortho xp is not mediocre and i get the same results above 30 in both sims at large airports, xplane 11 i can have world traffic 3 maxed out and still hold the 35 fps mark, its a flat out fact that flight sims are moving to become more gpu pc is far from mediocre regardless of what you say. Colonel X why don't you have your pc specs listed so we can see your magnificent computer.what you just said is pointless.
  9. i 100 percent agree with you in p3d 4,i took a 7700k and my 1800x and ran them side by side, in x-plane 11 i came out with higher framerates, in p3d 4 it was 10-15 fps difference. p3d v4 is perfectly playable on a ryzen 1700 and a 1080ti. i also ran fsx, it ran like complete garbage on the ryzen and ran like a top on the 7700k. lockheed has come futher than we give them credit for. in x-plane i have everything on high or max and keep 30-60 fps, on the 7700k i was holding 30-60 fps, i was also using process lasso for both.i raised the settings until it wouldn't drop below 30 and also used nvidia shadow is p3d 4.0 and x-plane 11.05, the single thread performance argument is falling apart as time goes on.
  10. i am using an 1800x at 4.1 ghz and 32 gb of ddr4 at 3200mhz, yes p3d runs well, x-plane 11 runs amazing, i thing the 20mb of L3 cache helps alot, you just can't get that on intel. with that said, i plan on buying an 8700k to compare, whichever runs the worst will become my media home server.people think that just because the ryzen won't run over 4-4.1 ghz they are no good, x-plane and p3d are becoming more gpu bound, the cpu is starting to make less and less difference in gaming. everything is being dumped on my 1080ti.
  11. maybe that explains why my ryzen 1800x and my 1080ti runs x-plane and p3d 4 so well, both sims are becoming more gpu bound,i have considered buying the 8700k, but it's up in the air right now.
  12. i don't see how it's good business to spend 380.00 on the 8700k and then have to take a chance at it no working because of a delid.i would like to buy the 8700k when it comes back in stock, but we shouldn't have to modify an already expensive product to get full performance.
  13. i was gonna buy it until i watched this video and read that article,ya you can do 5ghz on water, but will more than likely need a delid to keep temps under control, thats what i had to do to my 7700k. i use my 7700k pc for p3d 4 and my ryzen 1800x for x-plane 11 and everything else. intel is becoming a huge let down to me at least. if i am not dead, zen 2 comes out in january with a die shrink and hopefully higher clocks.i honestly think amd has ryzen locked to not be able to go over 4.1 to 4.2 ghz. zen 2 will probably open the flood gates for clock speed. but if intel does stop disclosing clock turbo boost clock speeds, people are more and more likely to end up with a dud overclocked cpu. for people that complain they lost the silicone lottery now, wait until the disclosure.i was an intel word not allowed most of my life, but i am about ready to run the other direction. we shouldn't have to delid a cpu to be able to get max performance, thats complete bullsh@t.
  14. before anyone buys an 8700k, this is bad for overclockers. one article and one video, keep your 7700k's
  15. all fsdreamteam and flightbeam airports work, flightbeam airports are being charged upgrade prices to be compatible with there own flight beam manager as they are upgraded, it's a really nice feature.
