  1. The other parts of the rig I'm buying new / off eBay so I'll have direct prices for them. Basically I have the CPU and GPU laying around, building a system for my uncle to play FS2020. He gave me a budget, parents told me that I can go a certain amount over (their gift to him) - so I just wanna know what'd be a fair asking price, so I can recuperate a fraction of my costs!
  2. Not sure if this is the right place for this, let me know and I can move it! I'll spare you the backstory, but how much are an i7-9700k and a 2070FE (non-super) going for right now? Old parts going into a system for someone, need to know how to value them (other components were bought off eBay/Amazon, so I have prices for them!) Thanks for the help
  3. Sorry about that - totally didn't mean to leave you guys with no information! @FakeNSA was correct, tabletop gaming table. Basically just needs to show an image or two, maybe some fancier stuff but super lightweight. Didn't even think to go with a NUC! Great idea, thanks!
  4. Trying to decide which SBC to embed in my Gaming Table (built-in TV Screen). Both of these build SBC's that run Windows 10, any clear advantage of one over the other? LattePanda: https://www.lattepanda.com/ Udoo: https://www.udoo.org/ Haven't spec'd out exactly what I need, but not a lot of power for sure. Might get a mid-tier one though, just in case I end up pulling it out of the table and using it elsewhere. Thanks for the input!
  5. You guys have already been ridiculously helpful, I love this community but just a quick follow-up... If one was to want a build that could play FS2020 for closer to $500-600 USD, what would you suggest? Basically COVID sucks and budgets might be tighter
  6. Sounds great. Will hang on for that then. But in terms of specs, something like the 2070S / Ryzen 3600 is sufficient? Just in case all the prices do drop, it may come out that saving money and sticking with an even cheaper 2070s may be better than bumping to a 2080 etc!
  7. I can definitely wait a few weeks until RTX 3000 comes out. I guess I’ll have to wait and see the pricing / lineup, unless the 2070s is expected to drop price when they launch?
  8. Budget (including currency): $800-1000 USD Country: USA (shipped / taken to India) Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): My uncle is a commercial airline pilot who lives in India. He expressed excitement in Flight Sim 2020, and I'd love to surprise him with a computer that can play this after everything he's done for me over the years! Most likely, he's going to end up hooking it up to a TV in his bedroom or living room, and (for now) play with keyboard/mouse/gamepad. He might get a yoke later. I'm primarily wondering what mid-tier CPU/GPU combo would allow him to play this game at decent detail and refresh rate - nothing extreme is necessary. At first I was thinking along the lines of a Ryzen 5, maybe Ryzen 7 at good price? I've never built with Ryzen before, and I'm not familiar with anything other than a 3700X I helped a friend spec out for his mid-high tier gaming rig. I was also considering something like a 2070, or maybe a 5700 XT - the Radeon is definitely cheaper, but what is the performance like? A mini-ITX form factor would be ideal, as an aside. Lastly - I know that FS2020 detail is dependent on your internet speed, and India's internet speeds aren't the best. I think he gets something like 15-20Mbps, so I figured I'd include that in case it would be some kind of bottleneck! Thanks for any help you can provide!
