Hello everyone! I consider myself an enthusiast gamer and am also a pilot looking to build a pretty serious flight simulator with 2 or 3 displays (1 for instrument panel, 2 for windscreen view). I intend to buy the nicest displays I can (display port, 1440P, etc) in the future.
I plan on starting with:
CPU: i5 3570k
MoBo: P8z77-v Deluxe
Memory: 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600
PSU: Corsair HX850.
I was thinking of going with two Gigabyte 670 gtx's (T.H. highest rated 670)...
Do you think its worth it to upgrade to the 680? I would probably just buy one now and get one in a couple of months if that were the case.
SLI 4GB 680's or 3/6GB 7970's is what you'll need to play at that resolution with three monitors. IF you want to max out the settings (in other games I should add, flight simulators like FSX are more CPU demanding, but you'll want the graphic horsepower), you will need an even stronger solution (at that point you're talking GTX Titans in Tri-Sli or something rediculous.
