    For some reason my link didn't show up??? Sorry if I looked cray-cray! I have two VG258s now.

    ASUS VG258QR 25" (Actual size 24.5") Full HD 1920 x 1080 up to 0.5ms (GTG) 165Hz DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort G-SYNC Compatible Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Gaming Monitor - Newegg.com

    BTW I do have a custom unit a computer nut buddy of mine built me. Can't remember all the details, but all I really have to do is add another hard drive, which I have. I thought I would have enough room with the hybrid HD we chose, but I didn't know how much room Windoze 10 takes up!!! You have to love the boot up time with the hybrid. I was floored first time! Almost like a light switch!

    Anyway, this is for a complex flight sim, with all the IFR navigation panels, etc. Plus a yoke, throttle quadrant, rudder pedals, switch panels etc.

    Thanks!

    The link shows up. If you are running an ad blocker, it hides the amazon links.

    Just wait until you upgrade to a PCIe Gen 4 M.2 lol. It will make that hybrid drive feel like a 5200 rpm spinning disk lol.

    In my current system, I have a 1TB SSD and it boots in about 15 seconds or so. It may be about 25 seconds now, it's starting to slow down.

    We got ( and it's still coming down ) some snow over night... Currently at 7:15a, it looks like about 3-4" where I'm at with up to 6-9" being forecast depending on which weather person you are listening too... the NWS is saying 4-6" at the moment. A lot of areas also got a layer of ice before the snow started, so it'll be a little dangerous to get out in if you aren't used to driving on this stuff or haven't drove on it in a while.

    The radar at about 7:30a for the area...

    Yea, for Oklahoma standards, this is a little nasty. Last snow fall like this was back in Feb of 2011, then before that was Dec of 2009. I remember those years. This will be gone in a couple days though. However, with snow on the ground, and they are calling for clear sky's tonight, it's going to get cold, that's for sure.

    I thought I was going to have to go on a mercy mission to deliver my exGF's pain meds that had gotten delayed and were now available... luckily her PCA ( personal care assistant ) decided she could make it after all... so that will save me a trip.

    I still got out and had sweep the snow off of the side windows, front windshield and hood before I got the text... I think it looked like I got around 5" around here based on what was on the Escape. We've had a bit of wind, in the 15-25mph range, so that estimate is probably a little low. I think the next round is starting which is forecasted to bring under another inch or so.

    I'm also glad I'm not located to the SE of myself ( or Tony for that matter ). From Davis through Ada up to about Holdenville shows to have received from 4"-4.5" of rain ( radar estimated ) and they were getting sleet through most of this. I'm uncertain how much ice what would account for but here we were getting a 10:1 snow/rain ratio... so they were hit hard with this one.

    Wow!!! I wish it would snow here. All we get is rain and tornadoes, like we did today. I went out to get food for the dog, and that was it.

    If it did snow, I would try out my snow skis that came with my Kingfisher.

    BTW I went to Spartan in Tulsa and lived there for a while. I remember non-sticking snow in April.

    Oh, so simulators can be games? ;) This is really incredible. My old sim had "dynamic weather", but nothing like this!!!

    On a day like today, I would love this, especially with a proper setup, yoke, rudder pedals, etc.

    I just happened to go to bestbuy and saw it on their daily deals, and remembered that you were looking for one. No worries.
