  1. Thanks Mateyyy and boggy77 for your comments. Really appreciate.
  2. After some thinking and advices from friends, I got to the components attached. Any thing that I can/should change? EDIT: I can get everything for 522,51€ Thanks!
  3. For X-Plane I will not get a better performance because it mainly uses 1 core. Maybe for the next Microsoft simulator it would be noticable but I start to notice that, unless I go to oither CPU values, I will not see great changes in performance.
  4. I asked a friend about what he thinks about this upgrade and of course now I'm more confused. Currently, my motherboard is the Asus p8z68-v gen3 and it only supports DDR3 RAM but in fact I can put a more recent CPU, either i5 ou i7. This way I could keep my current board and save some money. So, as an alternative to the Ryzen 5 3600, is there a better option going to intel? Should the RAM support being only DDR3 be a bootleneck?
  5. Thanks! So, 3600X if it's same price as 3600 with a good cooler. 3700X is definitely not worth the difference. Thanks to all that helped out!
  6. @Mateyyy I think I will go for the Ryzen 5 3600X as you suggested. I will get more or less the same performance right? About the motherboard, it's a good choice for the future? I mean, if I want to update later I will be good with this one? Thanks
  7. Thanks. I will definitely go for the Noctua just because after trying others I really like this brand. It's indeed very quiet. But thanks for the suggestions! Really appreciate all the help I can get.
  8. Thanks Mateyyy, From your advices I got this: My First Choice Motherboard: Asus Prime B450-Plus 97,90 € CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 348,70 € RAM: Corsair 32Gb Vengance LPX (2x16Gb) DDR4 2666MHz PC4-21300 CL16 145,90 € Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 89,90 € TOTAL 682,40 € Option 1 Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max 115,90 € CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X 348,70 € RAM: RAM Team Group 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz Dark Z Red CL16 120,82 € Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S 57,90 € TOTAL 643,32 € Option 2 Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max 115,90 € CPU: Ryzen 5 3600X 231,23 € RAM: RAM Team Group 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz Dark Z Red CL16 120,82 € Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S 57,90 € TOTAL 525,85 € Changing the RAM to a "RAM G.Skill 32GB Sniper X (2x16GB) DDR4-3600MHz CL19 Urban Camo" will increase 32€. From what I see, the Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 7 3700X are very similar with a big difference in price so maybe your're right about going for the 5.
  9. Hi, I play flight simulators for a long long time and now that Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is around the corner I want to upgrade my "old" PC to prepare it for the new sim and also get a boost in Xplane 11 performance. At the moment I'm getting around 20-25fps on a 1440p monitor but at the cost of only getting medium graphics settings and getting below 15fps or less in some scenarios. So what I have now is: Motherboard: Asus p8z68-v gen3 CPU: i5 2500k RAM: 2x8Gb DDR3 1600 (from what I remember...) GPU: GTX 1660 6Gb What I'm thinking to buy: Motherboard: Asus Prime B450-Plus CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X RAM: Corsair 32Gb Vengance LPX (2x16Gb) DDR4 2666MHz PC4-21300 CL16 Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 I will keep my case, Power supply and Graphics card for now. My monitor is a Dell 1440p 27'' 1ms 144Hz with FreeSync. I also want to buy new storage. I think an M.2 SSD would be the way to go but I don't know nothing about that. So, what do you think? Any changes that I should do? The budget is around 700€ (~772$) but I'm open for suggestions. Thank you.
  10. It's a good question. I think I have two options: 1. two 1080/1440p monitors with ~24 inch, side by side - I would use them for development setup and also for Flight Simulators (I could use the wide view in this case) 2. The other option would be a bigger size monitor (~32inch) and maybe 4k in this case. I would have 4 1080p spaces to organize my development setup but for full screen Flight Simulator game I would still need a second monitor. Thanks for the advices on the Dell's. I will take a look at those.
  11. Hi, I have two 21 inch monitors with 1680x1050 resolution and big bezels. So, they're working but I want to change them to something more recent. I want to use them side by side so tiny bezels are a must. About size, I think 24 is the lowest I want. Resolution: 1080p minimum, 4k not necessary, I really love the 1440p resolution so that would be for me the right spot Budget: as I said in the beginning, I'm using two monitors that are not even fullHD so I don't need nothing very high tech. Of course, I don't want to buy some 7ms response time monitor also. I think something in the 200-250$ each? Less was even better. Any advice's? Thank you!
