... I decided to go for it anyway and wanted to know if someone has a similar setup or comments on this one:

 

The PC is a Acer Predator Orion 9000 (i7-8700k) with 32GB RAM 2400MHz DDR4 and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

it has a SSD/HD combo of 256GB/1TB, but I decided to add a Samsung SSD 970 Evo NVMe with 2 TB as my main drive for flightsimming.

 

I know that the 1080 TI might be too much, as I intend to run the sim at 1920x1080, but hey, as I keep my systems for 3-4 years, this might change and there is still headroom then, I think.

And the SSD will probably not speed up the sim compared to an SATA SSD, but maybe the load times (and hopefully the texture loading during flight).

 

I hope to get decent frames out of this, I will be happy with stable 20fps on the ground at large airports and 30fps during flight with the more complex planes.

 

Comments? Apart maybe from the fact that I am burning some money with that (because: I know)?

I think go for it.  As you say you will be future proofing with the 1080 Ti, so I don't think it's too much.  I was also looking at getting a system very similar recently, but have decided to hold out for a bit longer with my current system.

 

Cheers,

Guess you are talking about P3D, yes a highend graphiccard with a lot of memory makes much sense. Especially when LM introduces with one of the next versions PBR.

Personally, I've been waiting for the i9's, which are out this fall.  If you can wait, I'd give them a hard look!
