Hey guys! Long time lurker, first time poster. I need a little help with a build for some students at my school, so I thought I'd ask you guys! Let me know if you guys need any more info. Thanks in advance
Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP
Budget Range: $500-650 (monitors/OS not included)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Microsoft FSX w/acceleration expansion
Are you buying a monitor: Yes, I want to use 3 20-21.5" monitors for FSX. Don't know what resolutions would be best for the game. No need to include in build price budget, however, but I would like recommendations.
Parts to Upgrade: Full build
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, tiger, amazon.
Location: McDonough, GA. Best Buy is very close. Can make a trip to Fry's if it's worth it!
Parts Preferences: I generally like ASUS motherboards, but I'm open to anything good.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe- Eyefinity sounds like it would be great for this game?
Your Monitor Resolution: Whatever is recommended, either 1600x900 or 1920x1080.
Additional Comments: We are also building a rolling cabinet for our civil air patrol to put all this in. the idea is to have two monitors mounted on doors that swing out. The PC will reside on a shelf inside the cabinet, but it will remain open for airflow. They have the flight controls to go with it as well.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I just want them to have a good experience on their flight sims with 3 monitors.
