Build help does my pc build in minimum requirements for SC?

Recommended Posts

first time i tried the hangar module today and windows ask me to change colour scheme to basic, when i launch the hangar module to me it feels playable but has occasional laggy movement especially when changing directions, im not sure if its due to pre alpha or ealry stage of the game or its my build that cannot compensate which if its the latter i think i will struggle to to play decently, anyways here is my pc build:


OS: windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

processor: intel® core i5 CPU 760@2.80GHz (4CPUs), ~2.8GHz

memory: 4096mb RAM

directX version: 11


Nvidia geforce GTX460

approx total memory 2768MB

Current display mode: 1920x1080 (32bit) (60Hz)


my pc knowledge i would describe it as basic to intermediate so please be patient if i did not provide all the details needed.


i would be happy if my current set-up would suffice until the full game comes out as i know pc hardware and software gets upgrade so often in space of a year then maybe i can build a good one for the full game.


out of topic still cant decide whether to invest now on a good hota or again same reason to hold out until full game launch and maybe a controller SC specific comes out.


thanks in advance for all the suggestions and answers.

According to the hangar page, the minimum requirements are as follows:


  • Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
  • DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB Video RAM
  • Quad core CPU
  • 8GB Memory

This is, of course, the hangar requirements, but it's a good ballpark figure. Like Cyberian said: upgrade your RAM and GPU. Your current GPU is old but barely passable (because it has DirectX 11 and 2GB onboard VRAM, the client will at least try to run). Your system RAM needs to be doubled before you hit minimum requirements for memory, however. I personally would say you should just go up to 16GB if it fits in your budget.


Upgrade your RAM first, but until you get a new card, you will be running graphics at low.

thanks for quick reply @CyberianK


next query is my current motherboard is Asus P7p55d-E, do the current GPU's in market still compatible with my motherboard do does it need upgrade aswell?

RAM: Should be at least 8-16gb (I'm suggesting 16 if your planning to play on Maximum settings - I mean this on full release and not on DFM)

HDD/SDD: I suggest getting at least 1 TB of HDD space and/or 120-240 GB of SDD

GPU: Depending on how much your willing to spend you can buy a GTX 660 or if you have some cash to spare then either get a 770 or 780


Oh I also forgot - Remember to think of your cooling and power supply if your thinking about doing major upgrading on your rig. (Though I wouldn't suggest a full upgrade till end of 2015 or start of 2016.)

according to dxdiag (thanks skyrobo1 for telling me this) my BIOS date is 08/27/10 ver 8.00.15, i honestly dont know how to update this so will google it now, for now i will update BIOS (going to search how to first) and buy RAM to 16 like PAsta and Skyrobo1 suggested.


im looking into palit Geforc GTX 760 2GB (not sure if it will fit my tower (using ANTEC FANBOY air chassis).

current GPUs run


Board has PCIe version 2.0 instead of 3.0

only makes ~5% performance difference for a Titan though, much less to none with lower performance GPU

sorry CyberianK this is all latin to me lol, am i right to assume you meant my motherboard is still okay? or it is the opposite?

      My old build was passed down and time for a new one, parts get here Thursday to start assembling.
      CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6 GHz
      CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series, H150i PRO RGB, 360mm
      Motherboard: ASRock Z390 Taichi Ultimate LGA 1151
      Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000)
      Video Card: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING OC 8G Graphics Card, 3 x WINDFORCE Fans, 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6
      Hard Drive: SAMSUNG 970 PRO M.2 2280 512GB

      I'd like to get more in depth with overclocking this one.  Assuming it will stay more than cool enough to push it some.
      Anyone have experience with this type of mobo's settings to give some suggestions?

      Hey all,
      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.

      Hi All. First post here. Tried searching a bit, but didn't see anything already mirroring my situation.
      With the release of alpha 3.0 I've gotten back into SC a bit, but my gaming rig (built in 2010) is definitely showing its age. I'm not sure if its my RAM or CPU thats really holding it back. I suppose its also possible that with the game being unoptimized, the performance I'm getting is just how it is. Anyway, I'm looking for upgrade advice for my current PC. I'd like to keep the upgrade cost around $500-$700 (I'm not trying to build a whole new PC if possible).
      Current Rig:
      Intel i7 950 | ASUS RAMPAGE III GENE X58 Exp | MSI GTX 1060 6GB | 12GB DDR3-1333 OCZ Gold (triple channel) Corsair H60 | Antec mini P180b | 850W Corsair TX850W  | 2x Acer 24" Looking for advice on what parts to upgrade. I also currently have 1 sata3 SSD and a couple of standard 1TB HDDs. I'm basically thinking I need to look at RAM or CPU, but that means a whole motherboard swap as well, so I'm really not sure what I can get for ~$500. I've been out of the PC building loop for awhile now. (like I said I last build in 2010). Looking forward to your help!
