[Need Advice] New Flightsim PC Build: Bang for buck build
Since we're not allowed to fly anymore, I want to pick up an old hobby of mine, and as you guessed it that hobby is Flightsimming. I did it alot when I was younger, but now I want to keep my real flying skills/feeling up to date with some simming. Since my original computer isn't able anymore to run any sim (I7 920 & GTX 660), and since I'm unable to get descent performance out of my Mac Pro
I decided that the best thing to do is to build a new PC. Therefor I wanted to check if this seems like a decent build.
The mindset of the build is bang for buck. I don't need the best looking sim ever, I need
a smooth one (good FPS). The only requirement for the graphics side is to be able to run the sim on a descent (read non ugly) config, with good enough settings to have necessary things (for example being able to run in High HDR setings in Xplane to get night lignting in the Zibo). I don't have a ton of addons, it just needs to look ok, but mainly the performance is key. Frame cannot drop under 20fps when simming on Xplane to prevent simrate drops on IVAO/Vatsim. I also want to train IR procedures, and therefor performance should be ok, not perfect but ok. Therefor the mindset is bang for buck, since the PC is only gonna be used for Simming.
What do I expect, well running the following sims with following addons with smooth (25-30 fps stable) performance.
|X-Plane ||P3D ||FS2020 |
|Zibo 737 ||FSLabs A320 Family, PMDG 747/777, QWSim 787, Aerosoft A330 ||No addons yet, I just want to be able to run it (with decent performance) |
|Orbx LOWI, Justsim EBBR, Ortho is not required ||Orbx Global & OpenCL, Justsim EBBR and maybe some other Airport Sceneries || |
|Descent weather, so real life weather can be simulated (Active Sky if possible) ||Descent weather, so real life weather can be simulated (Active Sky if possible) || |
This is the build that I've currently Made:
|CPU ||Intel® Core i7-9700K |
|Mobo ||ASUS Prime Z390-P |
|SSD (NVME) ||Samsung 970 EVO, 1 TB SSD |
|RAM ||Corsair 16 GB (2x 8GB) DDR4-3200 |
|CPU Cooler ||Corsair Hydro Series H100x |
|PSU ||Corsair RM650X (2018) 650W |
|GPU ||GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming OC 3X 8GB |
|Case ||Corsair Carbide Series 275R |
|OS ||Windows 10 Home |
The price of this build is aprox (Including Windows 10 License) €1750 in Belgium, Incl VAT. Are there things I can save money on? This seems like the max price I want to pay for a Flightsimming only machine, unless descent performance is not achieved with this GPU (Is a RTX2070/80 Super necessary?).
Is it an option to switch to AMD? Prices are lower, but as far as I know Intel performs better in Sims (due to higher clock Freq)? But if the differences are minimal, is it worth it to consider AMD, to reduce the price?
TLDR; I need advice on a new PC, only to be used for Flightsimming. Don't need too fancy graphics, just normal decent graphics, but mainly a Smooth experience (25-30 FPS stable) in the FSlabs A320 & Zibo 737 (See table above for required addons and sims). Is the RTX2060 Super enough, or should I consider another GPU? Is it an option to switch to an AMD CPU, or are there other things in my build (See table above) where I can save some money on?
Thank you soo much for all your input guys! You are my heroes!
Stay safe guys! Ciao!
