Custom vs. Out of the box PC's & X-PlaneJust wondering what people's thoughts were regarding this topic. I'm currently in the market for a new PC and I'm wondering what other people's opinions are regarding x-plane and how it's preformed for them. When I purchased x-plane 10 I was sent a link to x-force website http://xforcepc.com/store/index.php/computers.html/ Never heard of them before but I took a look and was impressed that somebody actually built custom PC's for x-plane however I was a little dismade by the fact that absolutely no one had posted any reviews of their products. Has anyone here ever heard of them or have any opinions on their products? It seems like a lot of serious x-plane users either build their own systems or I guess buy custom made ones. Personally, I've been using Dell products for over 30 years and although I know they may not be the best platform for this application, I have an old Dell in my basement (Dell XPS 6301, Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 CPU @ 2.50GHz, 6 GB RAM, running Windows Vista, 64-bit. with a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT) so far, at least using the demo version, x-plane seems to work fine. Probably not the best graphics quality but things run smooth with no hang ups or crashes. Anyway..if anyone would care to comment or leave feedback that would be great. Thanks!
Another topic on a new computer...
DurhamTeesValley posted a topic in HardwareHi, I am thinking about purchasing this computer for the primary use of using X-Plane. However, I am using a Mac at the moment, and have never had a PC before. Therefore, I would be interested in hearing what you think about this, and how well you think it will run X-Plane 10. CPU: AMD FX-6300 6-core 3.7ghz 8GB RAM Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD6670 2 GB 1TB hard drive More information here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/FX-6300-Gaming-OVERCLOCKED-pre-installed-Comprehensive/dp/B00B26EDBI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_computers_1 Also, this is the monitor I would be interested in: http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-GL2450HM-Widescreen-Multimedia-Monitor/dp/B005OPLG0O/ref=pd_bxgy_computers_text_y Thank you for your input, and like I said, I do not know very much about pc's, so if there is anything I should improve on, or if there is better system I could get for the price (around £650 for all), I would be interested in seeing it! Best regards, Ben
Custom PC, any final thoughts before purchase?
X-Plane Australia posted a topic in HardwareI originally started looking at custom building a PC in December of 2012, now almost a year later I have enough money to build what believe is a pretty impressive machine. Please offer your opinions on the components chosen especially if there is a scenario where better performance can be achieved for less money (this is a big investment for me). All prices are in Australian Dollars, I am paying slightly more than the average price for these components but I am supporting my local computer store (scorptec). CPU: i7 4770k - (Better overclock potential than 4570k) - $395 Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 - $95 Mobo: Asus Z87 Pro - (Built in Wifi/BT) - $285 GPU: Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB OC - $579 Case: NZXT Phantom 630 - $199 PSU: Corsair CX-600W Modular - $109 Memory: Geil 2x4GB 1866mhz - $105 HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB - $105 DVD Drive: LG 24x SATA - $29 OS: Windows 8 64bit - $120 Assembly: Scorptec - $105 Monitor: Asus MX279H - $389 Complete system with Windows 8, a monitor and built by my local specialist for $2,515 (Australian Dollars) Not a bad price if you ask me, I look forward to your feedback Andy
