Best PC Build for P3Dv4

Postby pikaugrils4 » Mon Sep 14, 2020 5:34 pm

I've seen many posts of people asking for PC Build help, but never something along these lines. I've pretty much gotten fed up with fighting with my pc and I'm about to just build a new one.

So, what is a PC Build that will push a minimum of 30fps with P3Dv4 (Settings Maxed or close to it), Payware planes (PMDG 737NGX, QW 787, TFDi 717), Payware airports (FSDT, FlightBeam, FlyTampa), and Utilities (GSX, ActiveSky, ChasePlane).

My i7-4790k and GTX 970 can just barely get to 30fps on normal/dense on the ground, but I'd gladly spend a little bit of money and get a solid 30fps on the ground at max settings. Is the 7700k and 1080ti just the hot ticket? I've seen that pair recommended in quite a few recent build threads.

@ pikaugrils4 ,

Are you thinking about building a PC or purchasing a name brand PC from a store?

Have you asked the Add-on developers?

See P3D requirements here:
