Hi guys, i've been away from the flight sim world for the last few years serving overseas in the military mainly so i'm out of touch with whats new.
I've been trawling through the forums to try and catch up and its great to see that the flight sim community is still as strong as ever.
I have decided to treat myself to a new system now primarily to run FSX and the many addons I intend to purchase over the next few weeks. My budget is £500(ish).
Reading alot in the forums it would seem that CPU is of the key here followed by Graphics and memory so im looking for optimum balance for my money, my new system will only be used for flight simming, I have quite a few Saitek hardware bits also.
This system appeals to me at the moment,
Intel Pentium G3258 Anniversary Dual Core Processor overclocked to up to 4.3GHz
Akasa Nero 3 CPU Cooler
Asus B85M-G Motherboard with USB 3.0
8GB PC3-12800 DDR3 Memory (runs at 1333MHz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 1GB Graphics Card
1000GB SATA 7200rpm Hard Disk
24 x DVD-RW Drive
500watt 80+ Aerocool PSU
Onboard High Definition Audio
Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM £450
If anyone knows of any better deals out there please send me a link.
