Help me choose components for my new PC


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm considering a nVidia GPU for my machine-to-be-assembled.

 

670/680/Ti/.....

 

Please help me select the best that would run DCS maxed out at high settings all with nominal preload radius, with a processor of either:

I'm currently thinking about this setup:

Case:

 

Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition

GPU:

 

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti OC 2048MB GDDR5 Windforce

 

 

CPU:

 

Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz 6MB Cache Desktop Processor

 

MOBO:

 

 

Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Socket LGA1155 Motherboard

with intel or

 

Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 Socket AM3+ Motherboard

 

for AMD processor:

 

AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz Six Core 14MB Processor AM3+

 

 

HDD:

 

Western Digital (WD) Caviar Green WD10EARX 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 64MB

 

And SSD:

Intel 330 Series Maple Crest 180GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5 inch Solid-State Hard Drive (SSD)

 

 

COOLER:

 

 

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

MEMORY:

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 CL10 Single Module

 

PSU:

 

Cooler Master Extreme 2 625W PSU

 

 

If you find anything cheaper in the same site but would deliver similar performance, I'd like to know since I'm just about a n00b when it comes to this.

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

I would go Intel not AMD.

For a mobo I would use Asus as first choice and Gigabyte a distant second.

 

I would not use a WD green HD. Go with a WD black it is well worth the extra money.

 

SSD is awesome, PSU looks good, cooler is nice (I have one as well) but a good air cooler instead might save you some money there.

 

Look at Antec cases if you can, the 300 is a nice mid tower with good airflow while not breaking the bank.

 

Memory brand looks good, also check out Gskill if available. It is relatively inexpensive but high quality memory.

Make sure your memory is configured for dual channel. 2x4GB or 2x8GB or even 2x16GB. You only have a single module listed there.

 

Get the best video card you can afford.

 

Enjoy your new system!

Haven't you been down this road several times now?

 

I'm thinking 2600K, but I want a monster. I have the money, I got good gear, so I want to spoil myself for DCS World max performance. I popped threads before for queries but too lazy to look them up for responses..
