  1. Well ? Have you loaded up X-Plane and if so how high can you push the graphics settings ? Thanks !!!!!!!!!!
  2. If I got to ask I dont feel confy with their service or sending in 2K ! Put it in the checkout specs that its what im getting even if I dont fully understand them ! I make decent money but squeek when I walk.lol... Got my new Rig, New Flight Deck, re doing my entire Bathroom, an addition to my garage, about to open the pool and hot tub + going on, just layered 5K on new carpet and dont get me started on the Tequila Bill.lol. That HP looks like a decent starter ????????? For all the PC's I have looked at based on Yall's expert and much appreciated advise I think that HP Omen 30 L will get me rocken ! ?????
  3. Thats all the info you get from the web site and on the shopping cart so im out...... Looking at this HP Omen 30 L unit. Cat says it will run X plane and MSFS at decent graphics & FPS. Operating system Windows 10 Home 64 Processor Intel® Core™ i9-10850K (3.6 GHz base frequency, up to 5.2 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, 20 MB L3 cache, 10 cores) [6,7] Graphics Integrated: Intel® UHD Graphics 630 Discrete: NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 (8 GB GDDR6 dedicated) Memory HyperX® 16 GB DDR4-3200 XMP RGB MHz RAM (2 x 8 GB) Memory slots 4 DIMM Storage 512 GB WD Black PCIe® NVMe™ TLC M.2 SSD Secondary storage 2 TB 7200 rpm SATA HDD Network interface Integrated 10/100/1000 GbE LAN Wireless technology Realtek 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 5 combo Power supply 750 W Platinum efficiency power supply External I/O Ports Top:2 SuperSpeed USB Type-A 5Gbps signaling rate; 1 microphone; 1 headphone/microphone combo Rear:1 SuperSpeed USB Type-C® 10Gbps signaling rate; 2 SuperSpeed USB Type-A 10Gbps signaling rate; 2 SuperSpeed USB Type-A 5Gbps signaling rate; 2 USB 2.0 Type-A; 1 audio-in; 1 audio-out; 1 microphone; 1 RJ-45 Expansion slots 3 M.2; 1 PCIe x16 Video connector 1 HDMI 2.0; 3 DisplayPort™ Audio 5.1 surround sound; DTS Headphone:X™ support
  4. I hear ya brotha ! This PC will just need to get me rolling in x plane. I am also building a gauge panel. By the time I get the FlightDeck built and the bugs worked out Flying with FSX and mid range X-Plane i am hoping this GPU shortage will be over and a High End PC will be bought or put together. Then use the mid range/Budget PC i am looking for today for monitors, side flight software, weather etc and the High Range for the Flight Sim... Thanks for all or any other comments ! Means A LOT !
  5. Nice systems. way better than I am looking at for the same price. Love that they are geared for flight sim, Xplane and MSFS..... Got one in the Shopping cart. Dont see a place to view all the specs. Kinda scary. Never bought anything outside of Best Buy and held her before buying. They want 1789,00 For this. THOUGHTS ? Intel 8-core, 16 thread i7-10700 at up to 4.8GHz with tower cooler Intel Chipset Motherboard supporting all 10th Gen Processors Can display X-Plane, MSFS X, Prepar3d, or other games on one to four screens NEW - Fast USB 3.2 16 Gigabytes of DDR-4 2933MHz RAM running in dual channel mode* Storage Options 1TB NVME SSD Nvidia RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6 650-Watt Power Supply One Year Warranty Internal WIFI-6 Adapter ( WIFI) Gigabit Ethernet Port Multiple USB 2.0 and 3.2 ports Supports up to 128GB of RAM with 4 memory slots 8-Channel Audio Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Windows 10 Dimensions 15.8" x 8.3" x 16.5" XForcePC, the PC system used by Austin, the creator of X-Plane. Detailed instructions on implementing a triple display setup with X-Plane
  6. Im not the most savvy PC hardware guru out there. With that, lack of time and the current GPU shortage Im going Pre Built.Looking at this one. What ya think ?iBuyPower, Slate MR Gaming Desktop - Intel i7-11700F - 16GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB - 480GB SSD + 1TB HDDMy plan is to get something like this one. Still build in a year or so when the GPU shortage is over. Will then use this one to run some side programs, Display etc.Thanks !!!!!
  7. Ya I know ! Plus I am putting on an addition to the garage at very high lumber prices.... Grilled cheese sammy's for a while .lol. Have upped the budget to 2K hence not really a budget.lol
  8. No the $ 70 will not break the bank.lol,,,,, Just a curious conservative consumer ! I will most likely buy X Plane 11 and MSFS just to test drive her. My biggest concern is a new PC... I have a seperate thread started for that ! Thanks !
  9. Nice site. I also like https://pcpartpicker.com/ . I can and have built PC's. Got 1 tore apart in full cleaning mode right now. My Question is geared more towards what is working with X Plain11 today as alot has changed since the requirements came out ? There are so many combinations it gets muddy and that makes this a tuff question for sher ! Especially when your talking about walking the budget recommended/minimum requirements PC. I used The X-Plane11 and MSFS specs to look for Pre Built and found this from Best Buy. CyberPower Ryzon 5 3500- 16 GB memory AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Any thoughts, Ideas or recently bought, built PC's that are working good with X Plane 11 would be appreciated. Thanks Again
  10. Thanks ! I have some time as I am looking into a new PC for X PLane 11, possibly MSFS if they ever get it to Flight Sim level. My new Flight Deck is also a work in progress but then again will it ever be "done".lol. My thoughts are to fly FSX with the new PC, flight deck. Gets the bugs worked out then upgrade the Flight Sim,
  11. OH for the Love of it all ! lol ! Im just looking into updating my Rig and Flight deck for X-Plane 11. Should I wait ? J/K im going in ! Been in this wait for this or that for 2 long ! BUT riddle me this BatMan Pilots as I am new to looking into X-Plane. Lets say they will come out with - 12 will it be a charged upgrade or free, will addon's still work etc bases on X-Planes past ? Thanks !
  12. Im running a Lenovo Idea Pad 330. Intel I-5 8250U, 1.6 ghz CPU, 1800 mhz, 4 core, 8 logical, 8.0 gb Ram Memory 2 USb, 1 Hdmi. With Active sky she barely runs FSX with REX Weather add on. Tried the X-Plane demo on lowest settings and its nasty. I have 1 usb for Keyboard, 1 usb for Saitek X 52 Control / Throttle. 1 HDMI for view monitor and 1 gauge monitor via Win 10 Connect. I am expanding with 2 Logitech Radio's, 1 Switch and 1 Multi so thats 7, 2.0 usb's minimum needed. Will be going from 1 monitor for view to 3 display for views and another for misc Gauges. Thanks !
  13. Hello Pilots, Am moving from FSX to X-Plane with a possible move to MSFS if they ever get that thing running like a Flight Sim. I enjoy the Pilot flight sim over pretty pictures ! Looking at spending around 1,000 US. Prebuilt is preferred as I dont have a lot of time for a build but If I can get a lot better PC for the same price i would rather spend the extra time with building. My background is more building Automated machinery, robots etc than PC's but will take on the challenge. Is there Pre Build and or Build sites that have X-Plane PC recommendations ? What Im doing now is I printed out X-Planes site PC recommendations and looking at both. Just thought I would ask the experts for site suggestions ! Thanks !!!!!
  14. Down Again.... This is twice in one week.... Might have to dust off the wallet and get a payware ! Really enjoy live weather ! Any suggestions on payware ?
  15. Charlie,,,,,, Not sher if you read the other site post but I went back and actually stopped doing my 5 things at once and re read Brian's instructions and along with your help it worked. I have SP2 and was able to log onto Vatsim ! I cant be more embarrassed for wasting everyone's time ! I appreciate everything you have done also. I owe ya ! Thanks Tim,
