  1. Getting no feedback so far to me seems quite informative as well - any objections ?
  2. Thanks to both of you for your instructive comments !
  3. Just have the opportunity to buy a used Fujitsu Celsius M730Workstation (Xeon E5-1620 v2 3.7GHz, 32GB, 1TB HDD, DVD, Quadro K4000) + Win 10 @ 500 Euro (from a well renowned reseller giving 2 years of guaranty) and I‘d highly appreciate any feedback whether you‘d recommend going for this as an Entry-Level rack to get a first impression of P3D ... just to give it a try if you wish as a I‘m > 10 years into FSX. Thanks for any feedback
  4. Hey there - just recently came across the LJ Cockpit webpage and their G600 product, which I find quite interesting. Now I‘m wondering if anyone of you has had some experience with both the company and/or this product and I‘d very much appreciate any kind of (honest) feedback. Thanks !!
  5. Hey all, given the specs of my i2700K PC (@ 1400 €) there´s only one thing though I´d like to point out - where do you want to place all your OrbX add-ons to ? Isn´t (only) a 2nd SSD with some 276 Gb harboring FSX allready much to small for that ? ... sorry if I´ve overseen any comments/solutons heading the same direction
  6. Hello from Berlin, Germany !! Thank´s for this very impressive presentation of the power of using beamers for visuals projection. That´s what I do for quite some time now - as this type of visuals projection gives you quite a different way of depth-perception even at low(er) resolutions. I´m currently switching from my old/single beamer to 2 new ones driven by a Matrox Dual-Head2Go (Display Port Edition) but haven´t decided yet which one(s). I do this with the fact in mind, that calibrating three beamers can to give the identical colours with the same brightness/intensity can be very tricky. So I hope running this procedure twice only could have some benefit. Anyway enjoy your flight´s !!
  7. My congratulations - that´s a very impressive homebuild cockpit. Excellent planning & craftmanship during implementation. Enjoy your flights !!!
  8. Going for Great Britain / Europe - that´s very impressive & good news, indeed !! I´m very much looking forward to this - my thank´s to the whole team for heading this direction.
  9. Looking great ... and I´m looking forward to ... the DVD-Version ;-)
  10. ... should have read the instructions more carefully . Enjoy ... again
  11. Hey all in coming back on my Intel i5 661 // Dual Core 3.33 Mhz post a few days ago - unfortunately providing some german links "only" - here´s some more information in english ... Intel's 32nm Clarkdale Processors: Explained]Intel's 32nm Clarkdale Processors: Explained]Intel's 32nm Clarkdale Processors: Explained] DDR3 @ 1333 MHz // Bandwith 21 Gb/s // RAM 16 Gb max - using an appropriate mobo // 16 PCI express lanes version 2.0 - thus - no Crossfire/SLI capability // Integrated GPU @ 900 Mhz // Chipset H55/H57 - at the moment not working with P55 chipset ... but according to Tom´s Hardware to be exspected soon. All in all not top notch ... but ... once one starts overclocking ... Any comments appreciated
  12. Happy new Year first of all !! I just came across an article in Germany´s leading computer magazine c´t http://www.heise.de/ct/inhalt/2010/02/90/ for the first time discussing some properties of Intels novel 32 nm technology-based, Core i5 661 dual core processor for the LGA1156 platform, which runs @ 3.33 Ghz ( no overclocking !! ) and obviously integrates a (42 nm based) graphic chip. I haven´t been able to find any data on Intels website ( so far ) - yet it is quite obvious, that this processor is available on the market allready http://www.heise.de/preisvergleich/a484197.html Thus, I´d very much appreciate your comments
  13. THANK YOU ALL FOR SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCE AND YOUR EXPERT ADVICE ON THAT TOPIC ! Seems like the only way to go is to have to learn how to overclock an processor I´ll make it
  14. This is where I am right now with regard to the new processor. At the moment I´m opting for an i7-920 – mainly because of the price-tag, that comes with the faster ones. Again, any comments, pro´s and con´s are highly appreciated. Processor: Intel Core i7-950 @ 3.06Ghz (boxed) http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=37150&processor=i7-950&spec-codes=SLBEN http://geizhals.at/deutschland/a401758.html @ 450,00€ Intel Core i7-940 @ 2.93Ghz (boxed) http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=37148&processor=i7-940&spec-codes=SLBCK http://geizhals.at/deutschland/a366184.html @ 450.00€ Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.67Ghz (boxed) http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=37147&processor=i7-920&spec-codes=SLBCH,SLBEJ http://geizhals.at/deutschland/a366185.html @ 230,00€ Mai I also ask for your expert comments with regard to following thougts: I´m still puzzled with this personal “skepticism†of mine, that results from the well known fact, that (a) FSX critically depends on actual processor speed and ( FSX certainly is NOT and will NOT be a multiprocessor game. Notwithstanding the advantages of finally getting rid of the “FSB bluesâ€, memory management issues in the new Core i7 processors, I´m still asking myself the same question again and again: what kind of an advantage will it bring if to go for an i7-920 with reduced processor clockspeed. Don´t I pay twice as much for 3 (“useless ?â€) processor cores still running slower than an E8600 Core2 ? I probably forgot to mention, that (a) overclocking is not my thing (not experienced), and I also won´t go up in screen resolution as I´m using a beamer (SXGA; 1280 X 1024) for my visuals. In the final stage I plan to use 2-3 of them coupled to a Matrox Triple Head graphics expansion module.
