Need a new PC


my 10 year old PC needs replacing. I could use a little help with the specs I need for the new unit that would allow great frames fo NK3. I have raced this game offline since it came out and have countless hours tied up in "fantasy carsets" I am retired and use this game a lot. Would appreciate any help specking my new system. By the way , is there any problem running on Windows 10? I have always used XP but that is not supported any more.
thanks in advance!

Re: Need a new PC


I'm going through the exact same process myself right now. As I don't know much about PC's or even building one, I'm having my computer-whiz brother-in-law build one for me. He's built the last 3 I have used and all of them have been great reliable machines.

Here are the specs we (mostly him) have selected for our next rig:

- Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI mobo
- Intel I5-6500 CPU
- [sign in to see URL] F4-2133C150-16GRR 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-2133 memory
- HGST HDN724020ALE640 7K4000 2TB, SATA3, 6Gbps, 64MB cache disk
- Lite-on IHAS124-04 CD/DVD writer
- Windows 7 OEM key + download
- TBD: sata or M2 SSD (samsung) boot disk
- I'll be using my old case and power supply (450 watts)
- Asus VG248QE 24-inch Full HD Ergonomic Back-lit LED Gaming Monitor

I also plan on adding a pretty potent video card and based on that choice will likely have to upgrade my PSU to handle it.

I made a post very similar to yours here over at SRD's forum and am receiving some very good feedback there.

Re: Need a new PC


Been thinking the same, too.

PC Gamer Magazine's special review editions always have 3 DIY specced out computers, in low, medium, and high, price ranges.

NR2003 from what I've seen will work on Win10. You have to turn something off. I think it's DEP, to get it to run 32-bit programs. So the info is out there when you need it.
