I'm planning on buying a new computer, partly for Prepar3d (v2.5, going to be upgraded). I was thinking about following components, as I'm still on a certain budget:
- Intel i7 6700K
- Asus Z170-K Mainboard
- GeForce GTX 960 4GB
- 250 GB Samsung SSD
- 1 TB Hard Drive
- 600W PSU
- Water Cooling.
My main concerns are the GPU and the mainboard. I want to play P3d with addons like the Aerosoft A318/319 or A2A GA Aircraft on high settings with at least 30 pfs, among that I will also use the PC for CAD work, video editing and music production. Therefor the question: Should I invest in like a GTX970 (which is even older than the 960) or even the Radeon RX 480? And is the mainboard capable of handling it all?
Also: Is 600 Watts enough power for the system?
Thanks in advance for your help!
