New Off the Shelf Rig

Post by :FI:Sneaky_Russian » Fri Dec 21, 2012 2:16 pm

Near 2 weeks of trying to bring PC back from the abyss; I opt for the easy solution.
Titan 8100a Xenomorph" AMD A10-5800K 3.80GHz @ 4.40GHz DDR3 2133MHz System - Quad Core

Never imagined I'd have something good to say about STEAM, but installed steam, logged in and it started to DL Cliffs, and when started found Steam had preserved all my HOTAS settings (but not missions).
HSFX copied from USB drive hassle free.

The on-board Graphics (3x AMD7660) run IL2 well, though Clod ticks over around 10-23fps
Windows Experience Index rating 6.9 (8800 gives 6.8 )
WEI rates MSI N460 GTX Hawk @ 7.5, and installing this card gives acceptable fps on Cliffs and Il2.
(WEI for Nvidia7870 was 7.9 = max)
