Im building a FSX rig and would like to know which GPU is best to use with 3 x monitors. I have seen videos on youtube in HD and they look so realastic and wondered if it might be the GPU they use or what it is they use to get that quality.
Should i buy a i7 4770K or a 4670k as ive read the difference isnt that big ?
OK so the 3 GPU are as follows:
1: MSI GeForce GTX650 TI OC Graphics Card - 2GD5

2:Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 - GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 Graphics Card - 2GB

3:MSIĀ® nVidia GeForce GTX760 Twin Frozr OC PCI-Express x16 3.0

Any other GPU in the same league would be appreciated.

I'm building a flight sim X machine soon, and I am going for a R9 270X, and if I have a little more cash, I will go for the GTX760.the 760 is a great value, as it will compete with cards up to the $300 range. In round numbers it looks like 20% better than a 660.
As you can see, I'm not a fanboy.

The R9 270 is about 12% better than a 660, and about the same price.

Pretty sure the 650 Ti boost is on par with a 660, but cheaper, not sure about the 650ti OC.
It is probably close behind the boost.

As for CPU, FSX only uses 2 cores AFAIK, and the only differance between an i5 and an i7 is L2 cache, and hyper threading.

FSMX dosn't use hyper threading, and I don't know how much the cache will help.

What you do want is to overclock, over 4gig, from everything I have read, so an i5k should give you the best bang for your buck.

Flight Sim need a top CPU, and a pretty good GPU.

If you are hearing Flight Sim X dose better on Nvidia, I have never seen that, although the best card I have had so far isn't very good.

From what I have read, Nvidia dose clouds better, if that matters.

All of them will do 3 monitors, but you will need a couple of $20+ active display adapters, depending on your inputs and outputs.
