I'm going for the 1070. Probably 2 of them and sell my two 970's.

Maybe for my gaming PC. I run RF on a Dell i7 all-in-one touchscreen with Intel HD4600 built in graphics and frame rates are good with everything set to highest/on.

I was going to wait until the regular units come out instead of going with the founder's edition.

I read somewhere that they are going to continue selling the founder's edition for those willing to part with ungodly sums of money for no additional performance.

Founder edition cards are $70-$100 more than the cards sold by other companies but they are built and sold by nVidia. You can buy them directly from their website. They pick the best components for these cards and have a strict quality control in place. Obviously are the reference design so aftermarket coolers will fit properly. They are very good at overclocking but not overclocked from nVidia. If there is a problem with them, nVidia would be directly responsible for warranty and replacement.

I'm with BrokeDad above... RF7.5 runs beautifully on my GTX760 with all the settings maxed. So while this new card may make a huge difference with some of the top-end games, I really couldn't justify one for RealFlight. That said, it sure does look cool. ;-)

Yeah, Realflight isn't the only program I use the PC for, I have a game catalog in Steam approaching 400 games as of now.. At any given time I have 40-50 installed. Realflight is probably the least, graphics intensive program I own now.

I will be purchasing a eVGA 1080 so I can finally run DCS World on three screens. With how incredibly outdated RF is I expect to see framerates in the 200+ range completely maxed out.

Like minds!

Now if I can just convince my better half that I need TWO MORE 60' flat screen 3D TV's for my other two displays. My existing 27" 3 - 3D screen setup just doesn't cut it anymore especially for DCS. Great sim!

Already have the HOTAs, Throttle Quadrant and Rudders an a "stalk"....

Of course a VR headset setup may be cheaper and far more immersive...

I wonder who will be the first out with a VR RC Simulator?

BTW: Do you still have your living room engine display? I still get a kick about that.

I have two screens, I want a third with the next card upgrade I choose. (or maybe a slot for a fourth)

I've just have a single 28" 3840 x 2160 display... I might get another one but with what I need it for, I would probably be better spending the money on a VR setup. I have 2 970's and it works ok but a single 1080 or 2 1070's would definitely be better.
