  1. I was planning on doing a new build before i started flying with p3dv4, but due to the current intel chip fiasco I have been advised to hold of on doing the build until we know furthermore about the performance drop. On that note I wanted to make sure this build could still support p3d v4. I do not want to go through the aggravation of installing windows 10 and p3d just to find out the build is going to have a hard time with it. Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I53570K AS Rock LGA1155 DDR3 SATA3 USB3.0 Quad CrossFireX and Quad SLI A GbE ATX Motherboard Z77 EXTREME4 1 x G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAB 1 x GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition DirectX 11 GV-R797TO-3GD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready ... 1 x PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W High Performance 80PLUS Silver SLI CrossFire Intel Haswell Ready Power ... Thanks for all the help!
  2. So its worth staying with my current 4 year old system until a new intel CPU comes out?
  3. I am looking to do a new computer build and dont know what to do. I was going to buy the i7-8700k but i dont know if i should hold off for right now or if i should buy it or possibly get the Ryzen 7 1800x. Any suggestions?
  4. Do you guys think it’s safe to order the i7-8700k? I want to get the computer order in so I can start my new build.
  5. How is the AMD chip stacking up against the intel chips? I guess I gotta google a benchmark and see
  6. What is a mobo that you guys recommend. Also is a full size atx the same as a mid tower? Or do I have to look for a full tower?
  7. I picked that mobo as it had the best reviews on pcpart picker for being easy to OC a cpu with. I am new to doing a build myself so I could be picking some wrong parts here. Any suggestions or help is much appreciated
  8. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/nbfcQV that is the lastest build that I am thinking about getting. I am planning on using Add ons for Xplane and p3d. Also I will be using a 2440 x 1440 monitor but eventually get up to 4K. Let me know the thoughts on the latest build

  10. I am looking to build new PC that will handle X plane 11 and P3D v4. Its been 2 years since I last filed using p3d v3, so I’m looking to jump back in. I am not familiar with building computers so I don’t know if I should end up buying a prebuilt computer or giving it a try and assembling the computer myself. I would like my budget to be $2k or less, I am looking for the best bang for my buck I can get. Also is overclocking a cpu a must as I have never done that before.
  11. I just installed Pro Atc and came across this error. I searched everywhere, but dont see a solution. Hope this is the right section to post this in.

    installed p3d in c:/program files (x86) win 10

    The only issue i have run into so far is that Ezdok will not install into the C folder drive. It keeps giving me error code 13. When i looked it up it said this is a problem of installing ezdok into the C drive.
  13. I installed p3d in the C drive. What is the best course of action to correct this as I already installed Orbx Vectors and Base as well as REX and PMDG? I know I should have made a new drive for the install.
  14. I took a year off from p3d and wanted to get back into things today. I did a clean install of windows 7 64 bit on my computer. My plan is to do the following installions: P3D Orbx Base Orbx Vectors PMDG 737 FSUIPC (Is this still needed?) Rex Essentials plus overdrive Active Sky Next (is this still better than Rex with weather updates?) GSX I heard MT6 is very good, but is that the best ai traffic software out currently? Also what is a good ATC software as the last one i had was Pro ATC/X? Anything else that i should look at installing?
  15. I used to have an add on for FSX that let you pause at a certain nautical mile away from the destination airport. Is there anything like that for p3d?
