New pc build suggestions

Postby ryujin » Mon Jul 03, 2017 12:03 am

Need to build a new desktop PC for xplane flyinside. I prefer intel CPU and the only thing I have atm is a gtx 1080. Ideally I am looking for a good setup for FPS rather than fast scenery loading ...I can buy ssd storage later down te road. So if you have any suggestion for motherboard,CPU and cooling , ram and power supply I would really appreciated it. Cheers :)
My Hardware:
i7 7700K 32GB RAM NVIDIA GTX 1080 - Oculus Rift

I'm in the process of rebuilding one of my rigs for flight sims. I see you prefer Intel CPUs. I'm currently looking at using one of the new AMD Ryzen processors, either 1700X or 1800X. Probably going for a ASUS X370 Asus CROSSHAIR VI HERO, 32GB DDR4 CAS14 3200 RAM (Gskill), 1TB M2 SSD, possibly a 1080Ti or the new AMD Vega (when released). Still figuring out the rest of the specs :)

6700K or 7700K with a ROG Hero viii mobo and corsair 110i water cooled fan and 3000mhz DDR4 men sounds good with a nice 1000watt psu. But I think the new hero board is out ;) I have the 8 mobo with a nice 1080 in there. Nice stable rig and runs xplane 11 lovely.

Thank you. I came up with the following list... if anybody who has a similar build would like to comment on the performances, that would be great!

Get a 750 plus psu, you need a tad more power.

Great! The HERO you were referring is the HERO VIII ? Also HERO VS STRIX is a religion war or is there anything I should keep in mind while choosing between those two motherboards?

It's personal preference. I love Republic of Gamer boards. But ensure good reviews and mainly price ;) abut you cannot go wrong with an Asus board mate.
