Wow I thought I had a sweet setup, but you guys are killing it.

I don't have a great picture of my setup, but here you go.

6700k
1080ti
Both with AIO liquid coolers
ASROCK Z170 Fatality K6
Corsair 740 case
Predator X34 curved ultrawide 1440@120
Corsair fans x8

Just recently added some Sennheiser HD579 headphones and a SoundBlaster AE-5. I had no idea what I was missing audio wise until I set this up. Wow.

Nice setup. How do you like the curved predator? I'm looking to replace my old predator.

Thank you. I love it. Have gone through multiple monitors over the last few years trying to find the perfect blend of refresh rate, resolution, size. My last monitor was an ASUS 28" 4k@60hz that I had for about 8 months. I had a 27" (I think) ultrawide before, but with ultrawide you lose a lot of height so it seemed very small after you get used to how wide it is.

At 34" an ultrawide is similar in height to a 27" 16:9.

This is definitely a monitor I can see keeping for an extended period of time. OC to 120hz with no issue. Stock is 100hz.

The only thing to keep in mind is this monitor takes up a lot of depth on your desk since it's curved.

Here you can see the curvature better.

My first rig. Ditching the tape drive for the 5 1/4 disk drive made such a difference.

I had plans to go custom loop but got lazy and never got around to it. I'm not on it as much as I probably should to justify that anyway, but here's mine:


Display:
LG 34" ultrawide

CPU:
i7-6700K at 4.7GHz

GPU:
Zotac 980Ti

RAM:
32GB G.Skill 3200MHz

Mobo:
Asus Z170 Deluxe

Cooling:
Corsair H115i AIO
Thermaltake and Phanteks fans

Storage:
Samsung 512GB 950 Pro
Samsung 250GB 850 Evo
SanDisk 1TB SSD

PSU:
EVGA 750W
Recently put a 1080Ti Kingpin in the above build.

The 980Ti was moved to my Ryzen 1700 build (had to RGB this one, lol), which is in a NZXT S340 Elite with NZXT Hue+, 16gb ram, 1tb SSD, and 850W psu.

I have a couple of others but they're i5-6600K and i5-4950 with RX480 that don't get as much attention nor are they as pretty.

My current setup.

Mac Pro 2,1
2 x 3GHz Quad-Core Xeon
32GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 5770
2x Dell S2415H LCDs


I bought the Mac Pro from Craigslist for $150 and brought it back to life. Since its an old system, parts was super cheap. All together (including the Mac) i spent $100 to get it up and running again.



My previous setup

Intel Core i5-6500 3.2Ghz (Skylake)
Noctua NH-L9i CPU Cooler
Gigabyte GA-H170N-WIFI LGA1151
Crucial Ballistic Sport LT 16GB (2 x 8GB)
Samsung 256GB SSD
Windows 10 Pro
Streacom - F1CWS Evo HTPC case
120w Power Supply (PicoPSU compatible)
picoPSU-160-XT 160W Power Converter Module

I wanted to build a minimal themed Windows box so this is what i came up with. The case looks like a taller Mac Mini and its 100% aluminum throughout. Its super clean and super quiet, and also for sale.

My new rig incoming at the end of this week... Just in time for my 2 week holiday from work!!

Alienware Area 51 R5
Intel i9 7980xe (18 core)
Nvidia 1080Ti graphics card
32gb RAM
1tb PCIe SSD
2tb HD
Alienware liquid cooling
Windows 10, integral wireless etc etc

I know the i9 7980 is overkill for gaming and some lower core-count processors do better on single core benchmark tests, but I managed to get an absolutely ridiculous level of discount so couldn't say no! Will post photos when it arrives!

Always been a fan of alienware but the case looks tiny. How many M.2 slots does it have? None the less sick specs and I wonder how the i9 will do for future gaming.

I know... I managed to get 1300 off the processor (I figure either an overstocking issue or a price error!) so it was less than a 7900x - at the price I just couldn't say no!

Thanks... Not too sure about expansion slots - my current Aurora R4 has quite a bit of space, the area 51 can apparently have triple graphics cards so I imagine there is a reasonable amount of space... We'll see when it arrives... the 7980 is total overkill for anything current really, but at the discount I got I couldn't say no!!

Hey guys,

Can someone tell me what most important to FSX...I don't need 100% settings. But would like HD and don't want to spend a lot buliding a computer(all it will do is run FSX).

Nothing special. I run FSX with a GTX 680, i7 and 16GB RAM with plenty of frames and its fine, resolution 1280x1024.

Plenty of frames because your resolution is 1280x1024. Are all the settings maxxed out as well at that resolution?

Yup all settings to max, resolution is also caused by using a 22" CRT-display and no LCD screen. Had tried 1600x1280 but some of 3rd party aircrafts have flickerings and shoven edges sometimes. So I take the lower resolution, see it all and deal with the given specs. If you scroll back to the 2nd page here, there is a pic of my rig.
