The Steam version?

EDIT what are the rest of your PC parts?

Ryzen 7 5800x3d
DeepCool Gammaxx L360 A-RGB
RM850X (if the wattage wont fit i can buy a different one)

From everything I have seen it just kills video cards and needs over 16GB of system memory. The one I saw was a 2080ti and the game was using around 22GB of memory.

The game was using low CPU usage and like all of the video card @1080p with some areas just running about 30FPS.

I would go all the way if you need to buy now or wait for the new RTX 4090.

The Steam edition should be the same thing just in your steam library.

One thing I forgot to tell, It has 64GB ram. And erm btw. DCS reserves the V-Ram. It doesn't actually use all of it but just saves it for "later use" (I used to play it with a 1050TI and it was running 45+fps mid settings @1080p, the guy in the video did not use proper settings 2. Sorry for confusion and thanks for the answer.)

Yes he had things cranked up.

You could buy less of a video card if you wish but your also increasing the resolution. Almost double.

EDIT it really depends on how much you wish to spend on a card.

If your happy with your settings and FPS this would still be a improvement either more FPS or higher settings moving up to 1440P

This site is not the best but says about a 200% increase in performance and your power supply should work with it.

Any of these should give you better performance than you have now even moving up to 1440p. They should all run off the power supply you already have.

The lower end 3060 would is about 200% better than you have.

Not sure where you live so prices may very.


Up to you to make sure it fits in your PC case.
Thanks, I think the 3080 would be a solid option, or maybe even the 3080TI if the price goes down. Whats your opinion on that?
