lol deggis why so angry? PC envy?
maybe someone will be thinking about building a system and see some specs here and buy those parts.
sure there are many other places to get this info but the admins aparently don't see this thread as useless.
i mean saying things like that isnt exactly helping to bring the community closer together
I only have one comment for these types of threads. It is completely useless to post your framerate and compare to others unless you are running LFS the exact same way. Example:
I have 2 PC's networked together. I just unlocked LFS on the old PC so my 5 yr old can race against me on something other than Blackwood. Here's the specs for the 2 PC's
Old - Celeron 667 with 512 mb and pci ATI 9250 256 mb graphics. Pretty lame computer, eh? Well, she gets a solid 30 FPS on it, so, it's not too bad.
Mine - AMD Athalon 64 3500, 1 gig memory, and onboard 256 shared ATI Xpress 200 graphics. What do I get? Gee, a solid 30 FPS, same as her!
That's incredible, eh? Difference is, on the Celeron, that's at 800x600x16 with no AA/AF, all LFS LOD settings at minimum, etc. The ATI 3500 is 1152x864x32 with max AA/AF (I don't run AA/AF like this, only for comparison) and all LFS settings at max. (My normal racing is with 4xAA/ 4xAF and get between 40 - 60 FPS with full grid).
Moral of the story is, if you don't use the Unofficial LFS Benchmard configuration files to announce your framerate, then it means absolutely nothing.
My second post here on the forum and I'm hoping that it stays relevant to this sub topic.
My PC configuration (with Oculus Rift) will be (purchase will be made in january 2019):
- HP workstation G4 V4
- Core : 7th gen intel i9 processor running @ 3.3 GHz
- 8 DIMM slots
- RAM : 16 gb for the first year
- Disk space: 2 TB Segate solid state hard drive
Nvidia GTX 1070 or P4000 Quaddro (still undecided as P4000 might have specific drivers that enable LFS to work better as a simulator in our lab)
- 3 monitors (NEC 50inch) linked side-side
@ Bator, how is your Gaming PC style B working out so far with the Oculus Rift? Any particulars to report regarding frame rate and motion sickness, if any?
These are nice to read later, so I write all hw I remember to have had:
I think when I started in 2009 I had some Athlon64 3500 and silent Geforce GT9500 which cooked to 105 celsius degrees while playing LFS causing my screen frozing during game. That continued until I realized it was the gpu temp and I attached a 12cm fan into the gpu cooler. I used windows XP with probably 1GB or 1.5GB RAM.
In 2015 I had Win7, 8GB RAM, and Pentium G3240 with Integrated Intel graphics HD4000 or something like that and it was well enough to play LFS. I probably had already upgraded my graphics to Geforce 650 when new Blackwood was released.
My last configuration is Win 10, 8GB ram, Intel I5 4460 and Geforce 1050 which I used succesfully also with AC and R3E simulators.
I see you decided to go for the M.2, have you noticed any difference compared to an SSD? I heard those things are nuts!
I guess I'll show off mine.
Asus 24" LED A-Sync MG248Q 144hz (3x)
16GB ram @ 1200MHz
GTX 1080Ti 11GB
I installed speccy and noticed it says my graphics card only has 3070MB on both virtual and physical memory. Is anyone familiar with this issue? I'm sure this card should have 11GB.
I'll try other programs though to see if it might just be speccy being silly.
think the m.2 defo faster but my eyes can't see difference.
the m.2 u just put in mainboard some cover over it and u never know it's there
But I have to work on my fan noise level (quiet anoying) and it's just 1 fan that blows the air into my case. When GPU is fully used and all 3 fans blow at max also noisy But happy with my Corsair liquit cpu cooler it has 2 fans but I hardly hear those
Edit: My Old system was i7 3770k, 16 GB @1600, 250GB SSD (sata) with gtx1060. (my son happy with it)
