:Money Posted March 12, 2017 Report Share Posted March 12, 2017 Hey all, I finally bit the bullet and got myself a dedicated pc rig. It's a used Alienware Aurora R5 i7-6700k 4.0ghz, 512gb SSD/PCI3, 1TB 7200 rpm storage, 32gb DDR4 2133mhz ram, Nvidia GTX 1080 8gb. 850 watt Liquid cooled power supply with connections and space for a second GTX 1080. Unsure of motherboard but online search says comparable to MSI z170. Has 1 year of transferable warranty left.The reason for getting a prebuilt computer was that after comparing prices for all the components, I would have paid more total price than I did and I was concerned about having compatability/construction issues and I like the fact I can deal with one manufacturer for any warranty issues.I also like the fact that it is somewhat future proof and can handle processor, video card, ram and HD upgrades. So now that I have this setup, I would like to know all the ways to squeeze the max performance out of DCS, every windows 10 system setting to tweak, the best graphics setting I can handle with the least fps loss, etc...Please let the tips and tricks start rolling in, I am very anxious to get back in the air!!!MoneyEdit- Not sure if this makes any difference but I have one 32" tv connect to the dvi port and one 27" monitor connected to hdmi port both running at 1080p. The video card also has 3 display port connections. Does this way of connection affect fps at all? 104th_Maverick 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
