  1. i9-9900k, 64 GB DDR4-3200 Memory , RTX 2080 Ti etc will probably get the job done. 🙂
  2. The 1080 Ti is a great card...I would go probably with it over the 2070 Super...but can't go wrong with either. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1080-Ti-vs-Nvidia-RTX-2070S-Super/3918vs4048
  3. Thanks for the advice. I went with an iBuyPower custom build. 🙂 Processor Intel® Core™ i9-9900K Processor (8x 3.60GHz/16MB L3 Cache)Memory Memory 64 GB [16 GB x4] DDR4-3200 Memory Module - Certified Major Brand Gaming Memory Video Card NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - 11GB GDDR6 (VR-Ready) - Single Card Motherboard ASUS TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING -- RGB, 802.11ac WiFi, USB 3.1 (6 Rear, 4 Front), TUF Protection Primary Hard Drive 1 TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD -- Read: 550MB/s, Write: 520MB/s - Single Drive Data Hard Drive 2 TB Hard Drive -- 256MB Cache, 7200RPM, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive Power Supply 850 Watt - Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB - 80 PLUS GOLD
  4. CUK Mantis Z390 Custom Gaming Desktop Computer $3892 CAN ($2967.31 US) To be as future proof as possible I maxed out all of the upgrades to the following: 1 x Intel Core i9-9900K Eight-Core Processor (16MB Cache, 3.6GHz-5.0GHz) 95W with 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler RAM 1 x 64GB (4 x 16GB) 2666MHz DDR4 Desktop Solid State Drive 1 x 2TB M.2 NVMe 2280 SSD 3.5" Hard Disk Drive 1 x 2TB 7200rpm 3.5" Desktop Hard Disk Drive GPU and Power Supply 1 x NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti 11GB GDDR6 Graphics Card (AC-GPU-241) + 750W 80+ Gold PSU OS 1 x Windows 10 Home x64-bit This will be used for VR gaming such as DCS, flyinside, areofly fs2, but would like it to be ready for MSFT 2020 when it is launched...especially if they go VR down the road. I've been comparing on amazon etc and this seems like a competitive price. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated since it is a big purchase. I need a PC now because my current barely meets the minimum specs for VR. My other option is to go with a minimum spec PC and plan to upgrade in a couple years.
  5. The Warthog looks good for combat. Which one the Thrustmaster T16000M FCS HOTAS or the Thrustmaster 2960720 Hotas Warthog Joystick?
  6. Ya I looked at this one...but does it have a reverse thrust axis built into the throttle like the X52 does? The motion should go from axis a --> b ---> a ---> c for reverse thrust. 🙂
  7. https://photos.app.goo.gl/2npnNssL3zM1pUXi7 Haven't flown it since trying VR...:)
  8. There was no search...the x52 has a built in reverse thrust axis 🙂 I was just surprised this isn't standard on all throttles...as mentioned it's literally THE BEST PART ABOUT LANDING A JET. 🙂
  9. This is more than just assigning a reverse axis..the x52 has a FORWARD/BACKWARD axis and a REVERSE THRUST axis. I just assumed all throttles had this separate reverse thrust axis built in but from researching it sounds like some don't. I want to be able to start at idle...throttle up to max...throttle down to idle as one axis. Then there is another axis if I pull down from where it rests in idle to reverse thrust.
  10. I like the Logitech Saitek x52 and x52 Pro. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LZ1MQTL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They have resistance that you can adjust, and has a proper reverse thrust axis on the throttle where you actually pull it back and it locks into place. It's literally the best part about landing a jet! I checked out other brands being recommended, but it seems that most use a work around where you program a button to reverse the throttle without actually pulling the throttle back? Can anyone confirm what other brands have a proper reverse thrust axis? Anyway I went back to my tried and true Saitek x52. P.S if you touch type then they also make the best keyboards...the logitech K520
  11. cool thanks...not sure about the x52...I had one before and it was awesome. I sold it when I built my GA home cockpit and went to a full yoke. This time I got the x52 pro. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LZ1MQTL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  12. I am going to start with DCS and then likely try both aerofly fs2 and flyinside to see which one I prefer. If my cockpit PC meets the minimum specs for MSFT 2020, and saitek gear is compatible then I might get it...but not doing a new build. Will probably wait for a PCVR version instead. 🙂

  14. Flying VR (Oculus s with a saitek proflight x52 joystick and throttle) you have one hand on the joystick and the other on the throttle...how do you work the instrument panel? Do you pick up the touch pad or use the mouse? Is it hard because you can't see the mouse? I have only flown VR using virtual controls so curious how it's done.
