    System for p3d

    Thanks for the info. Think I will look into getting a cooler for it to sit on to help with that. And yep, will go with the 6GB Vram version

    Great, that sounds very nice indeed, just what I was looking for :)

    Think that may be over budget as ideally don’t want to pay much more than the price of the one I listed. But I will look into it, thanks for your help

    Sorry yes meant to saw 7700HQ. From what I’ve read the reviews mention it has pretty good cooling but worst case I will buy an additional cooling case if needs be.

    Thanks for the reply. Ok will go with the 16gb. Should I stick with the i7 7700k or would another spec be suitable?

    System for p3d

    For a couple of personal reasons I am looking into getting a laptop than can run P3D (and potentially other games) well. I haven't used P3D before as I am an FSX user looking to make the jump across. The laptop would be hooked up to a display occasionally but I will prob only run it at 1080P max, not really interested in 4K or QHD. I usually run payware airport scenery, PMDG/Aerosoft/QW, Activesky, Orbx Global & Vector, Ai traffic package. Would the below be suitable? 8GB RAM version is a bit cheaper but I've read 16GB is recommended for P3D 4.2 https://www.scan.co.uk/products/156-asus-rog-strix-gl502vm-fy172t-fhd-g-sync-i7-7700hq-16gb-ddr4-256gb-m2-sata-ssdplus1tb-hdd-6gb-gt?v=c
  7. Forgot to say, if anyone has any recommendations on things that could be improved or not needed for what I want to achieve that would be great!

  9. Thanks Bluestar, will take a look at that. Am I pretty safe with any of the 10xx series? Is this much difference between 1050 and 1060? Yes tried that a few times and still nothing. I've uninstalled the Nvidia drivers just in case it was a software issue but now my BIOS wont even detect that card at all, it just thinks the PCI-E slot is empty. I am just hoping the PCI-E slot itself isn't broken!
  10. Hi All Well it looks like my graphics card has died ? All was fine earlier tonight, mid flight on fsx my system completely froze (sound as well) with a white screen and wouldn't reboot beyond the starting windows 7 screen, it just hung on a black screen. Unplugged my GTX 670 and it booted fine. So it would seem the card has given up and I will need a new one. For now I don't plan on upgrading other components so a top of the range nvidia card is probably not worth the outlay. I am running an i5 3570k overclocked to 4.2ghz and 8gb of RAM. Any suggestions on a reasonably priced nvidia card for this system??
  11. Damn! I am hoping I can try to recover the data somehow? It sees the drive and that there is 100gb of data on there, I just can't see any of the files, only the folders
  12. Update - I have tried using Recuva on the drive but it gives me an "invalid drive size" error message?
  13. Hi All I have an issue with my SanDisk 120gb SSD that has stopped working properly. Bit of background - it is not my windows drive, BIOS recognises it fine as does device manager. My computer sees it and I can open it and see the folders but all the folders are empty. If I click on properties, the used space and free space is accurately shown. Disk manager shows it as healthy although not active? If I right click and mark as active it says cannot find the file specified. Minitool partition wizard shows it as a bad disk read only and if I try to recover partition it shows the partition status as lost/damaged but when I try to recover nothing happens. Any ideas anyone?
