  1. Thank you for your reply tony. What I am contemplating is a desktop. What I meant with the CPU is that the max turbo frequency is 4.6 (at least it says so). I indeed think that the GTX1070 will be a better option, but I don't really want to go much above €1200. A 2TB might be a bit overkill as I will use it for P3D only and no other sims or games. Keeping the OS on a clean SSD and the sim on the HDD shouldn't give any problems, right? I don't really need te newest and most expensive system, I just want a smooth simming experience with good graphics. This is the system I am currently looking at: https://www.coolblue.nl/en/product/826056/acer-nitro-n50-600-9070.html If you know otter systems in that price range, I'd love to see some because I am not an expert when it comes to hardware. - Dennis
  2. Hello everyone, The time has come that I really need a new computer. I currently own a laptop with the following specs: i7 6700HQ @ 2,60 to 3,20 GHz Geforce GTX 960m 4gb 8 gb DDR4 RAM I own P3D v4, but just can‘t get it to run smooth. The PMDG 737 gives me 18 FPS combined with Active Sky while the settings are set really low. FSX doesn‘t work well either and is extremely unstable. For this reason I have been stuck with FS2004 for a long while but it‘s limits are really showing, and it‘s becoming more and more difficult to keep a realistic feel to such an old sim. So I am planning to get a new computer to run P3D v4 with the following addons: PMDG 737NGX REX Texture Direct + Soft clouds ORBX Global Base Active Sky 2016 Various airport sceneries I might buy in the future NL2000 v5 (maybe) I found a computer which might do the job. I couldn‘t find a lot info about others using these specs, but this is it: CPU: i7 8700 3,4 to 4,6 GHz 6-core (non-K variant) GPU: Geforce GTX 1060 6GB RAM: 16 gb DDR4 SSD: yes (256 gb) HDD: yes (1 tb) I am not planning on overclocking. Aiming to play at a resolution of 1920x1080. I also don‘t seek to max everything out as I just want a good balance between graphics and performance (although a bit of eye candy is always great, I should add). Do you think this would be a good rig, or are there better options for around €1000 - €1200? Thanks in advance, and have a great day. – Dennis
  3. Hello everybody, my birthday is coming soon and my parents are going to get me P3D v4. P3D v4 costs a lot of money so before they do I would like to get some information on if and how well I can run P3D v4. Here are my computer specs: - Intel i7 6700HQ @ 3.4 Ghz (In turbo frequency) - Nvidia GTX960M (4GB) - 8 GB DDR4 RAM - Windows 10 Home 64-bit What I am planning to use with P3D v4: - ORBX FTX Global - REX Soft Clouds/Texture Direct - Active Sky Next - Maybe the PMDG 737 I am currently using FSX with all the things listed above and in the PMDG 737 I get about 18 - 26 fps. Without the PMDG 737 I get a pretty steady 30 FPS (It's also locked to 30). How well do you think my system would run P3D v4 with the listed specs and Addons? Regards, Devear
