Another New Pc Question

Today, 02:58 PM

Posted by Brian Speake in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
My old rig will no longer run, crashes every few minutes so I will bite the bullit and look at a new W10 desktop to run mainly GPL/GTR2 and I would like to try X-Plane 11 flight simulator.

Money is not unlimited so what are the key choices to make in the spec as the old PC was nearly 10 years old I am out of touch with current thinking.

Processor/memory I was thinking of slightly older Intel chip and say 16Gb of memory, assume min 8Gb.

Graphics GTX/1050 or GTX/1060 not too different in price is the GTX/1070 worth the extra ?

Sound card wise whats a reasonable compromise or what do I look for.

Finally and maybe more longer term should I go for one large monitor or a triple-screen setup.

Am I Missing Any Major Mods?

Today, 12:15 PM

I have downloaded most of the season mods and CanAm mods hosted here. I'm wondering if there are any other major mods I need.

I have read about the 60 FPS mod but that seems to break the AI. Is this still worth downloading?

I have also read about a mod that slows the AI in the corners. Is this mod to make the AI more realistic or easier? Once again, is it worth having this mod installed?

Menu Issue Windows 10

Yesterday, 09:44 PM

When I use the OpenGL 2 rasteriser, the menus are corrupted and I cannot read them. I have a 1080ti, I7-8700k, Windows 10, and the latest video drivers. The direct3d renderer does not really work and causes me to have massive FPS drops. Any idea how I can get the menus to work? The monitor is 1440p 144hz display.
