Re: Welcome Guests.

Stappers--this is your old Wingie, Nummy. If you'll come back, I will too. You too Tiger . . . (Though I have to get a new flight sim computer to handle new stuff.) I miss your gruff voices. Stappers, I remember when we transferred to No. 43, new boys there. First mission, Norway, in our old Gladiat...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Eddie, I can get added: 16 GB Dual DDR4 for 100 USD extra, or better I think 32 GB 16 GB M,2 PCI for 150 USD. How does it look with the latter? I like the idea of 32 GB for video rendering etc. I want something that if it goes wrong, I have a guarantee, etc, and it might take forever for individual ...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Looks like order a prebuild now, as shipping in the US is chaotic, if non-existent, and it could be end of summer maybe by time components got here. Been waiting 3 weeks on a chopsaw . . . So anyway, anything terrible about this let me know: https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/desktop-computers/alienwar...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

So both CPUs are a good deal.
Excellent, a place to start firming up the build.
Hoping to start ordering components next week.
Thanks,

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Eddie, this seems very good single core performance:

Intel - Core i5-9600K Six-Core 3.7 GHz Socket LGA 1151 Desktop Processor

And price is right.
What think?

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Thank you very much Eddie. Closing in on a doable rig I feel. I'll check the compatibility site. On videos there's nothing more than four minutes uploaded to YouTube. These were experimental as I knew nothing when I started, just downloaded VideoPad and started clicking things. Here is my best one s...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Hi Silk: Two thoughts on this. The idea of building my own is to do a basic one first as a learning experience. If I botch it, I haven't lost too much. Use with regular monitor and TIR. Get back on OPS--barely. Then with knowledge gained, build a much more powerful VR capable rig. All those cables l...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

I've been looking around at basic gaming computers, the idea is to get up and running, and I found this DELL thing at an affordable price. 'Plug in and go' looks like the quickest way to 'Get one up." https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/desktop-computers/dell-g5-gaming-desktop/spd/g-series-5090-desktop/...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Eddie sounds good. And the girl in your avatar is one beautiful lady. I assume she is a Valkyrie, as they are known to consort with ravens. (Germanic folklore 101) I was married into a family of Valkyries for fifteen years once. Four of 'em. It was interesting. Their mother was the daughter of a Ger...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Good stuff Gosho. I'm ordering the case in the next day or two. Any preference white versus black? Black is traditional but white looks very cool. And maybe helps see better inside if it is white also. It's a nice looking case. And probably pick up the CPU cooler too. Is this it: Deepcool GAMMAXX GT...

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

"Not a chance in hell, especially when you profess such love for the Horribus." Actually I don't love the Hurribus. But it is a great trainer to transition to a real hardball fighter like the Spit,and though I have been flying the Spit and loving it--some geezer time in a slower plane seems appropri...
