Leonov posted a topic in The LoungeWelcome to the KSP Computer Building/Buying Megathread. Post your Specs and Builds of your Work in Progress, Current, or Future Builds; or ask for advice on computer purchases. This is also a place for constructive discussion, Please keep it an open and friendly enviroment. No fanboys just honest facts would be appreciated. Feel free to post Anything Computer Related here. Some hardware fixes. Some videos to help you with building your rig. How Not to apply Thermal Paste. How to correctly apply Thermal Paste. Looking to buy a Mechanical Keyboard? A Nice Form to fill out if you want help from someone with planning a build. When trying to recommend a build to you, there's some information that's extremely helpful for us to know. If you could answer these few short questions, we'd be happy to help! What are you planning to do with this compuer? Please be as specfic as possible. What is your budget? Does this include a copy of Windows? Does this include peripheals (a keyboard, monitor, mouse, speakers, etc.)? [*]Are you from the United States or a different country? Are you ordering from your own country or from across borders? Wherever you may be from, does the store that you are planning to order from have a website? It's okay if it isn't in English, we can manage. If you are from the United States, do you live nearby a Microcenter? Do you have any specific requests with the build? Do you plan on overclocking? If yes, do you have a specific goal in mind? Would you prefer the build to be particularly small? Would you prefer the build to be particularly quiet? In general, do you prefer this to be a computer that you can spend money on now and let it rest, or a box built for continuous upgrading? Do you ever plan on utilizing NVIDIA's SLI or AMD's CrossfireX technologies? These features, with a compatible motherboard, allow a user to link multiple identical graphic cards together for added performance. In real world terms, this lets you buy a second identical graphics card down the line as a relatively cheap and easy way to gain a fairly large boost in performance. However, this requires buying a SLI/CFX compatible motherboard and PSU now, which may result in slightly higher initial cost. (OPTIONAL) Have you already looked at or considered any parts (it's okay if you haven't)? If so, please list your top 1-2 choices for each category. If you've only picked out a few of the below, just list those. CPU Motherboard RAM Graphics Card Power Supply Case Hard Drive Solid State Drive (optional) Mouse (if necessary) Keyboard (if necessary) Monitor (if necessary) Speakers/Headset (if necessary) Once again, thank you in advannce for taking the time to answer these. My Build. My parts list can be found here. Look at these temps. LOOK AT THEM.
Klapaucius posted a question in Technical Support (PC, modded installs)I tried upgrading my SVE to the high res version, and my computer just choked. I was assuming, since I run Premier Pro on this PC and do video editing, that I would be fine. To be fair, my card is getting old, though I have seen on a few forums that the scatterer may be the issue? Anyway, what are the specs needed to run the high res Stock Visual Enhancements? And can someone explain as well the difference between the Environmental Visual Enhancements and Stock Visual Enhancements? Also, even downgrading to the medium res, I still seem to have lag issues (for some reason whenever I am landing a plane on the runway, just at approach). I do have a dozen planes parked just off the runway (I've been comparison testing all the stock aircraft and launchers), so that may be contributing as well. My specs: Windows 7 64-bit Intel Core I7 3.4 Ghz 16GB Ram NVIDIA GForce 660Ti (https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-660ti/specifications) KSP 1.4.2 with Making History Expansion Current Mods: Planet Shine Kerbal Engineer and then Kopernicus and Firespitter, which seem to be required to run the above...
Okay, so, before I say anything else, I have a FAST computer. So, I got this computer about 2 years ago and everything is good n' such. But I found KSP, and I like mods that are very high quality, that use a lot of my graphics card. I'm thinking about buying a new one, but I'm worried I might be accidentally downgrading. I currently have this in my computer, got it when I bought the computer: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt-720 I'm hoping to possibly buy this: https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-Xtreme-Graphics-GV-N1060XTREME-6GD/dp/B01KCWZ2EO/ref=sr_1_11?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1490820146&sr=1-11&keywords=gaming+graphics+card Would that be a good idea, or am I not doing the right thing?
