  1. Just an FYI, if I end up grounded, I will have a pre-ordered Tomcat to gift to some lucky chap if we can come to a fair way to pick the lucky person. Also the same for BoBP.

    32gb vs. 16gb ram

    Received my "used - like new" 16gb of matching ram yesterday and installed it today. It was recognized and a quick verification in the bios, system booted and so far all is good. Of course, I really don't see much difference, but DCS & GB still work. Don't know that I will ever "need" 32gb, but what the heck, it's there if I do.
  4. As I have no life outside the house and a wife that cheers me on, my only regret will be not getting enough stick time in AC that are not the F14s. There is gonna so much to learn. At least for us Warthog HOTAS users, key mapping (according to the video) should be easy(ish).

    32gb vs. 16gb ram

    Well I have been watching 16gb of matching Hyper X Fury ram on Amazon for the past 7 months, watching the price drop from $190 to as low as $130. The day after Christmas the price inched up to $139. Today it shot back up to $189. Checked a couple of other places and the ram is running $160-$180. Since this is 2133 stuff I guess there is not much call for it. Maybe Kingston is not making it anymore so stock is low and sellers are gonna gouge us that need it. Finding matching speed/latency ram is tuff and if I want to change to another 32gb kit, the prices a stupid high. Anyhow, checked the Amazon Warehouse and found "Used - like new" 16gb (2x8) for $111.00, so I bought some. Got 30 days to try it and return if necessary.. $111 is close to what I paid for the original 16gb 2 years ago and I can live with that if the ram functions okay. So in the realm of "famous last words", I am done "upgrading" 🤣!

    ethics question.

    I'm with Jabo on this..if your adversary is definitely out of the fight, check your six and save your ammo.

    DCS Stable Release Version Update 12-12-18

    Got it.. not a bad download. I like the removal of the green windscreen effects.. much easier to see the runway now just before I crash :-)... Still got the streaks on the canopy whether it is opened or closed.. but I won't look a gift horse in the mouth.. haven't tested anything else... for some reason at least to me the terrain looks better.

    New headset

    I have the little brother to those, HyperX Cloud Stinger. I later bought the surround sound HyperX 7.1 USB amp even tho the headset is not surround sound. My onboard sound was acting up and the USB amp was a quick fix. I like the headset as my big ears with my cannula tubing around them fit comfortably inside. The sound is good also for a inexpensive headset.

    32gb vs. 16gb ram

    Thanks Sid...great information and it seems like I could benefit from the increase in ram...now if they would just get off the current price point or I will wait until after Christmas. The older 2133mhz stuff is hard to find at times and when you do find it, it tends to be 30-40 bucks higher than the 2400+ faster stuff. Thanks again. P.S. I fell asleep right after I posted my question last nite and woke up to your answer this morning 🤣🤣🤣!

    32gb vs. 16gb ram

    Anyone running 32gbs who has run 16gb ram in the same machine with no other changes and notice any improvement or performance of anything during game? Especially DCS. Due to the limitation of my B150 motherboard, I am stuck with 2133mhz DDR4. I have found matching Kingston Hyper with the same latency for $144USD for a 16gb set (down from $185USD. I don't feel like upgradeding my MB, CUP and all new memory just to get faster clock speeds, do I am looking to squeeze a little more out without breaking the bank. Current specs are: I5-6600 GTX 1080, 16gb 2133mhz ram (2 8s), 250gb ssd, 500gb ssd and a 1tb 7200 rpm HDD (for back up), 1440p, 144mhz, 1ms, Gsync monitor. All the ram is 14-14-14 (both existing and future buy). Thoughts, suggestions? Don't get me wrong, I am running 05% of all settings at high to ultra with minimal to no issues. Thanks!
