So I've got a T.Flight Hotas X and I was curious if anyone else uses this setup that could give me an idea of their profile/keymapping? What other tools do you use for functionality in SC with your setup, if any?
I feel like the stick itself is too stiff or too loose no matter what I do, and I feel like I have deadzones as well. Trying to figure out what I can do to fix that besides getting a new stick+throttle combo.
Alright so after following other's builds, talking about purchasing another pre-built PC and being reminded I'll overpay and get less...here's what I've come up with: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VXFFWX
Last time I built a PC was about 4-5 years ago so few questions:
CPU - i7 vs i9
Is it worth grabbing the i9 now or is the i7 8700 just fine? Why? Is the cooler I picked ok? Motherboard
Completely guessed on this one, bad, good? Case - Mid vs Full
I like the look of the full size cases, but more money. I won't have any cd/dvd drives. Does the full tower cool any better? Is there any advantage beyond the actual space? Video Card - GeForce 1080ti
I'm finding all kinds of these out there. Does the brand matter? What detailed specs do I need to look at? All I've seen is the 11gb version that I want. Memory
I'm going to get 32 gigs of memory, does it matter if I get 2x16 or 4x8? I didn't know exactly how dual channel works and if better to have all 4 slots filled or if not relevant. I see options for 3200 and 4000, is the 4000 worth the price or should I just pick up 3200? Hard Drive
SSD vs m2.SSD vs PCI-E SSD? I'm lost on m2 and PCI. I see both labeled with some Octane drives, but PCI-E seems more expensive. What do I want here m2 or PCI-E and which one? I haven't followed how the tech works, read some, but still not fully getting it. Power Supply
Again guessed here, assuming 1k is ok? Sound Card
Are sound cards relevant anymore or is onboard sufficient? Picked a soundblaster one out, but not sure if I need it. Fans
I just chose some, assume I need 4 for the case, are they right? Do I need more or some different? All suggestions welcome, so be brutal with me if I've chosen something completely off. I'd like to stick to higher end stuff, but if it's a waste please let me know.
