Are these specs any good for 4K and VR at good framerates?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, as you know my pc decided to kill itself, I'm still attempting to get it going again, however if all fails, I'm crrently looking at the specs below for the new build.

 

Do you guys think this is the right specs for 4K simming and Oculus Rift use which will hopefully play everything on high settings for next few years. Or should I be considering other specs. I9 and the new motherboards are still a tad too expensive at mo given the improvements they currently bring.

 

2x 3TB Seagate ST3000DM008 BarraCuda, 3.5" HDD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64MB Cache, 9.5ms, NCQ, OEM - Standard gaming drives for music / films / downloads / steam etc,

 

SanDisk Ultra II SSD 960 GB SATA III 2.5 inch Internal SSD up to 550 MB/s Read and up to 500 MB/s Write - Flight sim drive,

 

500GB Samsung 960 Evo, V-NAND, M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, 3200MB/s Read, 1800MB/s Write, 330K/330K IOPS - Operating system drive only,

 

Intel Core i7 7700K oc to 4.8 ghz,

 

Asus Maximus IX Hero,

 

32GB DDR4,

 

Corsair H100i V2

You can hardly make a PC any faster than that so the answer is yes. That'll do, but, this being DCS, in any mission that contains more than a couple of dozen AI units, it too will be running below 60 (4k) / 45 (VR) fps and variably so, just like most other PCs today.

I would say just build it and don't even think about the performance until v2.5 comes out. Both 1.5.7 and 2.1.1 are worse, performance wise, than any of the recent previous versions.

No config today is capable of running DCS 2.1.1. at 4K or VR with high settings and high frame rate, though obviously "acceptable" level of eyecandy and fps are very subjective matter. That being said, you're aiming at a friggin' powerhouse machine, so with some compromise settings plus hopefully some game optimizations in next couple of months, you should be getting "not bad" performance.

That would be a very nice rig.

Just be aware as others mentioned, don't plan on high settings in DCS especially 2.1 in VR at this time.

 

If I were building one at this time, that would certainly be similar to what I would shoot for.

I'd watercool that CPU. Mine runs a little warm at only 4.5.

 

The cooler he lists is a AIO-Watercoolset by Corsair, all good ;)

If you don't have budget limit, I would recommend to replace the SSD for the flightsim storage with the fastest Samsung Nvme 960 Pro 1TB: it can help avoid stuttering.

It won't, the stuttering in DCS does not come from HDD lagging. A regular SSD is more than enough.

Cheers guys, I'll head for this build now. Luckily this morning I've managed to resserect the old pc, well sort off anyway. Things still are not great with it, but it will give me a few months leeway to get the money together for this. Would keep the boss happier rather than getting out on credit.

 

Thanks for the advice. At least I know I'm on the right track. Been a long time since I last looked at components

You probably shoud not OC your i7 7700K as this model is having a lot of temperature spikes problems. The fact is that Intel had to issue a statement to inform its customers that overclocking this model will void the garanty.

 

"[intel] do not recommend running outside the processor specifications, such as by exceeding processor frequency or voltage specifications, or removing of the integrated heat spreader (sometimes called “de-lidding”)."

Mmmm that's interesting, it's a pre overclocked bundle that comes with a 3yr garentee. Will need to speak to Scan and find out how they would deal with this, Thankyou for the heads up.
