Greetings X-Plane Users,
First time here. I’m interested in purchasing XP11. I've read the requirements on the website, but would much appreciate a bit more advice. My current PC setup (not purchased with this type of program in mind!) is as follows:
This config seems to generally meet the requirements listed on your site, except for the graphics card, which I would need to replace. The recommended graphics card is GTX1070 with 8GB VRAM, which is more expensive than I‘d prefer, but not impossible.
I do see that the minimum graphics suggestion is less, but I would want to use high quality graphics settings with three 1080P monitors. Note that my interest is in light GA aircraft (not airliners or military aircraft).
So, two questions please …
(I have a private pilot certificate with Instrument rating, 900 hours, but haven't flown in decades.)
Thanks much for your attention and assistance!
The short answer is: Since you stated you wish to run X-Plane with high graphic settings on triple monitors, I believe you’ll need the GTX 1070, at a minimum.
If you want a long answer on the GPU requirement, incidentally, I have conducted some Triple-monitor FPS measurements recently with various scenarios. It’s too lengthy for this posting here, please PM me if you’re interested.
