Would this kit be good for DCS?

Recommended Posts

My birthday is coming up soon and my girlfriend says she'll buy me some new computer parts as a gift. We're on a tight budget so no i7 for me. I'm upgrading from a E8400 @ 3.6 GHZ with 4GB of ram and 560 GTX to maybe this CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113280


This motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128577


And this ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314


Would anyone say this would be good enough to run DCS World maxed out with little to no lag? I will use the same GPU since it's pretty good.

Nothing in existance is good enough for DCS maxed, i'm serious.


You will want the biggest Intel CPU you can afford since AMD is currently lacking performance and DCS is incredibly CPU heavy.

An i5 is actually fine since the added hyperthreading of an i7 doesn't benefit DCS right now.

Look at an i5 3570k plus a MSI z77a-G45 motherboard. And ram i leave for you. But the motherboard is quite good since it even has an Overclock feature plus you can get into bios within windows.


Anyways I am more an intel fanboy and they qork quite well and for good prive. indeed i7 is overrated and useless for games as almost no game uses hyperthreading.


Too reduce lag one could also look into an SSD so the data feed into the beast isnt slowed down by an ancient HDD



Plus the I5+motherboard is around 300-400 euro and quite cheap
