Hoping some PC guru can help me out here. I'm looking for a good build for a 2nd PC to run FDS prosim and the 737 visuals. My budget is 2k. Been looking at this - http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/view/Fsx-1500-pc/

Is the GPU ok to run all visuals or will i need DVI D ports for the VGA wires!?

Also will i need a bigger PSU?

Cheers

Hi

You really don't a PC as high spec as this to run avionics! Maybe something along these lines is perfect ! - http://www.scan.co.uk/3xs/configurator/ready-to-ship-intel-1151-gaming-pcsi and add in an extra graphics card which is the same ! You will have up to 6 outputs from that one machine. An i3 or i5 is plenty to run avionics also... The PC in the link you posted is a high spec and would be suitable to run the sim itself ! But save yourself some money and go lower spec for the avionics although its up to you !

You can also buy these adaptor's to convert dvi to vga that's what I use and they work perfect ! http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/DVI-I-Male-to-VGA-SVGA-HD-15-Pin-Female-Video-Card-Monitor-LCD-Converter-Adapter-/311098672430?nav=SEARCH

Thanks for the link i'll look that up and can order two GTX 950s. So i'll just get those GTXs and get those adaptors for the VGA monitors!
