  1. I didn´t do anything than simply plug the third MFD in and it was recognized in the options. I do not use it at the A-10C but as it is available in the options I could simply assign the keys to something else.
  2. I tried and did so for a longer period of time. It works but at one day there seemed to be a driver issue with the intel onboard graphics. Then I installed a GT 1030 to my GTX 1080 and things were solved......I thought. I wondered about the relatively low FPS as I expected more. In a given mission it was 38 FPS. Then I replaced the GT 1030 with a GTX 1050Ti with no difference. The second card was for the monitor with the exports. The main handled 3 27" displays. But for my 3 displays behind the Cougar MFDs from Thrustmaster I needed an additional card for the connections as Nvidia can do four. To cut the long story short, the second card was a break in my system. Finally I'm running a Matrox triplehead2go and use all my 4 connections at my card. At the GTX 1080 this was a boost from 38 to 58 FPS without doing anything else. Today I'm doing the same but with a RTX 3080. It runs like charm.
  3. Or open the mission in the Editor and add them there, save under another name and enjoy.
  4. If you are running 1440p your CPU is good as it is. I guess there will be no difference. You can better upgrade to 64 GB of RAM if you don´t have it already.
  5. Beside of my CPU not being the 3D one and me having 64 GB of RAM the system is very similar to mine. The others nailed all points to keep into consideration already. 64 GB are usable in crowded servers and are definately a benefit. I guess you will have a lot of fun with this setup.
  6. I strongly believe this PC will give you a good performance. I'm running DCS on a tripple screen setup, but I got feedback from a friend, that VR is even more demanding. But I guess that there are good settings possible to get reasonable performance even there with what you plan to buy. Have a look at some threads in that regards. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask. Take care, Xoxen
  7. Hi Skyracer, I will try to answer as good as possible: ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 TI ROG Strix OC. What does "ROG strix OC" mean? ROG stands for Republic of Gamers and is a special brand for the Asus cards, kind of a premium brand. TUF stands for The Ultimate Force and is the budget line. The difference might be in the used components (e. g. condensators), but in reality the difference is not really noticeable in speed. Maybe there is more freedom for overclocking. OC stands for overclocked, so the card is already pre-overclocked by Asus. AMD or Intel? Actually I would say there is no difference. I switched from intel to AMD last year and didn´t regret, the 5800X I have is pretty fast and under the line it was a little cheaper. On the other had the AM4 socket is at the end of lifetime, repesctively the actual available intel stuff might be more future proof when it comes to CPU upgrade in a few years without changing the MoBo. Same two graphics card 3080 one is called TUF Gaming OC V2 other ends with ROG Strix OC V2. What is the difference between them? See above, what I was abe to figure out is that the TUF is slightly below the speed of the ROG, the V2 stands for a limitation in hashrate for mining. 1 TB of storage enough for DCS, my plan is to have DCS installed on one SSD? Windows in a different drive. long term ? DCS is the only game i play 1 TB should be future proof. Actually my DCS size is 289 GB and the only map I do not have is the Channel Map. I took the decision to go for 500 GB but would take a 1 TB if I would need to decide again. I hope this helps to take the right decision. If I would need to build a new PC my decision would be Intel, TUF and 1 TB.
  8. On a Server like 4YA in Syria I´m filling appr. 42 GB of RAM, so there is a benefit.
  9. I'm with you. It's a known fact that AMD improves a lot with their drivers over time. When I had the RX 6800 XT in June last year I was disappointed enough to switch back to Nvidia and didn't regret. But I play at 3x 2560x1440 and here the RAM bandwidth or whatever makes the Nvidia cards superior. If scampaboy plays at 1080 the AMD card will be as fast as the 3080 I guess.
  10. You got me wrong, the AMD card was great at low resolution but similar to the 1080Ti at very high resolution.
  11. What resolution are you playing at? I owned the RX 6800 XT and for 7680x1440 the RTX 3080 I now have outperform the AMD card in amounts. The AMD card was barely faster than the GTX 1080Ti I had before. In 2560x1440 this is not the fact, there the AMD card was strong. AMD seems to be good up to a specific resolution, I guess 4k.
  12. I think this will be possible, but will again result into performance loss compared to my system. You need to see if you want to gor for a 3 Camera or 1 Camera setup. The 1 Camera setup result into distortion (fisheye) at both outer displays. You can work on this by adjusting the head position in the Cockpit plus changing the FOV. The 3 Camera setup best work with 45 degree angled displays. Here I have limited knowledge. In case of further questions, simply ask them. Take care, Xoxen
  13. Hi Belphe, I guess you can get an idea of performance if you have a look at the following thread. I also have a triple screen setup with 3x 27" (2560x1440). So in case of further questions, don´t hesitate to contact me. Thread about triple screen and performance Take care, Xoxen
  14. I had the RX 6800 XT under triple 27" at 7680x1440 and switched back to Nvidia (RTX 3080) as it gave only 10% benefit (barely) over my previous GTX 1080 TI. The RTX is appr. 50% faster. But LucShep is right, up to 1x 1440p the RX was much faster compared to the GTX. The 6900 is better but I believe not that much. So it depends on what your favorite resolution is and if you also play other games. Here YT has enough direct comparison videos. I personally wouldn't do it. I would turn the case around not to see the white card anymore
  15. I had both, the RX 6800 XT with 16 GB and now the RTX 3080 with 10 GB. Before I had a GTX 1080 Ti with 11 GB. With all GPUs the RAM was mainly completely filled at a crowded server. I need to mention that I run 3x 27" with 2560x1440, means a total of 7680x1440, so a whole bunch of pixels. I never saw a difference in fluent gameplay, even with the RTX having 10 GB "only". It performs much better compared to the RX 6800 XT at that resolution. At 2560x1440 it gives a different picture performance wise and also RAM allocation. If I remember right the RAM never was filled completely at that resolution. I hope this helps, Xoxen
