Well, I finally bit the bullet and ordered the parts to build a new Main PC for the Sim. The current PC will slip back to the number two spot. It will more than likely allow me to actually drop one complete system out of the mix for a total of three.
I decided to go with an intel i7-3770K running on an MSI Z77A-G45 Mainboard with 16GB of G.Skill Trident X RAM. I was originally going to just get 32GB but nothing I’ve read, nor anyone I’ve talked to leads me to believe it will be needed. If it is, I can always get it later.
As for the video card… I was going to go the Nvidia GTX 680 route but decided I could better use the $100+ elsewhere. I settled on a GalaxyTech GeForce GTX 670 with 4GB of RAM. I’m going to try out the surround video and see if I can actually get better FPS that way than through the TH2Go.
More to follow when my Newegg package makes it’s way to me.
