September 2019 New Build

Postby Flyboy2000 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 12:45 am

Hello everyone,

Been using FSX with lots and lots of add-ons. on a 2013 build i7 with a gtx770. It is time for an upgrade.
I want to be able to fly real approaches using PMDG aircraft i.e. 737 . Does P3d v4 use realworld ILS frequencies etc?

Here is my proposed system
i9-9900k
Asus Aorus Master z390
Gkill DDR4 3200 C16 - 64GB
EVGA RTX 2080TI FTW3 11GB
1TB Samsung970 PRO m.2 NVme SSD
1TB Samsung 860Evo m.2 NvME SSD
4TB WD Black HDD
Kraken cooling probably 380mm
Corsair AX850 Power Supply

I plan on running the three monitor setup and also using VR quite often using an Occulus Rift S

What do you all think of the build?

What are the must have add ons.

Thanks in advance!

Tony

[EDITED TO ADHERE TO FORUM GUIDELINES]

Sorry, I do not get the logic behind this thread... The only thing I can suggest if money does not really matter (what I guess when looking on those components): why not going even further regarding RAM? Look for 4133MHz CL17 modules, you will be able to squeeze out the last remainings with super fast RAM. And forget about 64GB, you will never use it.

Chris,

Please do not take offense. I am completely unfamiliar with Prepar.. Six years ago, I built a PC with my son, because he loved MS Flight Simulator. It was a father/son build project. We did some online research, and then came up with an i7 build using a GTX 670, When all was said and done... it just ran, OK...There was still a bit of stuttering on the screen, I just felt like it was about a 5 or six out of 10..


He is 15 now and still spends lots of time with his add-on airplanes like the PMDG 737, and numerous other airliners, I see the newer you tube videos and would love to have the smooth performance and graphics that I see on the videos..that is why I spec'd out the stuff , so that at least on the hardware side, it is very cutting edge. One thing I know is that todays cutting edge, gets old quick. I am hoping that we can use this hardware to run the proposed Flight Simulator 2020 from Microsoft.

Switch Aorus Master to the ASUS WS Z390 Workstation (make sure it's the Z390 version!!) [on sale Price= $349] if you can reasonably expect to ever hook up TWO RTX2080ti. (for really high-end VR or displays). The ASUS Workstation uses a multiplexing PCIx controler-chip that allows you to run both cards at 16x/16x which may yield an extra ~5% in graphics card performance when running two cards relative to other Z-390 boards running normally at 8x/8x
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When I checked with Nvidia they say you can mix & match board partners as long as they both are 2080ti
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also, I think (for DDR-3200) that 32 Gb of CAS-14 is a better deal than 64 Gb of CAS-16
