    I think you would be wise starting with one good spec P.C and adding to a network as required at later stages, it wouldn't be cost effective for you to have a network of 3 PC's before you've started. I would suggest something with good graphics card, the net makes some recommendations on graphics cards and optimum computer settings to maximise frame rates etc. From there you can begin your cockpit build.

    Good luck,

    Re: Help all home built cockpit pilots!!

    Geremy is right, start with one good PC and than expand if needed or wanted,
    this is how I did it, the plan was have a couple of monitors and few saitek products,
    but this hobby has the habit of changing along the way, I now run 2 PC and a laptop 7 monitors
    and I have started the build up of the MIP.
    Also is very dependent on the budget you have and space in your house

    I am not sure about computer specs, someone on the forum told me preciselywhat to by for my main computer, I went out and buy it.

    This is what I have now, I made the video about 3 months ago, since than I build one side wall and few other things.
    Good luck with your project and post the updates.
