  1. Looks like I’ll be switching to AMD for my next GPU next month...
  2. Currently running a MSI x570 mobo with Ryzen 3600, RTX 2070 & 32gb 3600mhz cl16 ram and 2 NVME drives. I’m usually cpu bound in X-Plane but definitely gpu bound in MSFS. I’m running on a 3440x1440 ultra wide so not at full 4K. Planning on upgrading both cpu and gpu - was tempted to go top for both but being Scottish, I like to get value for money but not sure the big jump in price is worth the minimum gain. I’ll actually go for a new gpu first then see how well it plays with my current Ryzen but the clock and ipc gains on zen 3 are too tempting for me to resist. Yup, I’m down in Bathgate near Edinburgh.
  3. I’m going to be keeping a very close eye on the AMD GPU keynote this week. I think there is a very real chance I could be switching to AMD for graphics this year depending on price and availability. I was all set for the RTX3080 but the 10gb limit gave me doubts and of course you can’t buy one just now anywhere.
  4. I believe it was a MSFS fix included in the last update so if you are current it should be working fine without any workaround needed.
  5. Regarding USB, you also have the option of PCI USB cards and some come with additional internal headers.
  6. This shouldn’t be necessary to do a clean install with the new cpu. I would recommend however just leaving the mobo bios as is for now and only update to the latest just prior to installing the new cpu.
  7. From everything I’ve read, 3600mhz is still expected to be the RAM sweet spot for Zen 3. I’ve been running an MSI x570 mobo and it’s been rock solid so will be sticking with that but likely to upgrade the cpu for a new model but I may hold off and get one of the new GPUs first and see how things go as I’m currently GPU bound with my RTX 2070 in MSFS 2020.
  8. Windows 10 built in game bar is a good option as you can set your own keyboard shortcuts... https://www.digitalcitizen.life/change-keyboard-shortcuts-game-bar
  9. The ability to bind presets to keyboard shortcuts would be wish for me as this is lacking in the default sim.
  10. The fans at the top are exhausting air from the case through the radiator for the cpu? If so, I would consider adding a couple of front intakes if possible. This would mostly benefit your cpu as it would mean pulling cooler air through the radiator and likely drop your cpu temps, especially if the plan is to add a hotter gpu.
  11. @shane280172Do you have any intake fans in your case? It looks like they are all extracting from what I can see and it's not clear if you have any intake fans at the front.
  12. Nice, how is it flying at this stage? Hopefully not far away from a release.
  13. I’m not sure I personally would pay the premium for the ROG Strix over the Tuff card given how well the latter is reviewing. I do agree it would be worth waiting to see how the bigger vram cards review.
  14. Yup, I tried to purchase on launch day and missed out but I wasn’t too fussed as my RTX 2070 is working fine for now, even though I’m gpu bound in MSFS. Will definitely be purchasing an upgrade before the end of the year so in a way I’m glad I’m forced to see what comes with AMD.
  15. They ain’t selling for that price, it is just being done to ruin the auction for the scalpers. There are loads for buy it now prices ~ £1200 that aren’t selling. The sensible thing is to wait for big navi prices/stock/reviews before doing anything.
  16. I suspect we'll have new sims running 512k and much more powerful hardware by then...
  17. @B12I really hope we get to see Edinburgh Airport released by Orbx sometime soon and even better if they can incorporate some of the key surrounding POIs from True Earth North such as the stadiums, bridge, castle etc. In the meantime, there is a pretty neat freeware for Edinburgh available with better bridges and castle than Orbx have in their True Earth North package. Worth checking out.
  18. I’m sure it’s just P by default or perhaps Ctrl+P. No screenshot feature in the sim at the moment but you can use the Game Bar feature in a windows 10: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026387/windows-10-keyboard-shortcuts-for-xbox-game-bar
