New PC build
Posted: Wed Mar 20, 2019 11:59 pm
After several years of flying with gaming laptops & dealing with those downfalls I’ve decided to build a proper desktop PC better suited to flight simming. I came upon an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X from someone who’d bought one & decided after to go for an i9 instead. I have zero experience with building but have compiled an Asus ROG Strix X470-F Gaming motherboard, a Noctua Air cooler, Full ATX case, & a 500GB SSD thus far. The 500GB drive I intend only as the boot drive & basic applications. Planning on at least a 2TB if not 4TB drive for sims. Still on the fence about what kind of memory to go for & my biggest problem...a GPU. It’s taken me a few months to gather what I have now & I don’t want to skimp on a GPU...but at the same time it just seems ridiculous to go out & spend as much on a single component as I have on the whole rest of the system. That’s insanity. I’m just looking for suggestions as to how I can circumnavigate this issue?? I really want a 1080Ti or equivalent...I’d be bummed if I have to compromise on that. If the answer is to wait...I guess I’ll wait. I want to make this a quality build, it’s just disappointing that the whole thing is on hold because of these cryptocurrency idiots.
