Looking for spec suggestions on a good mid-range Windows computer for SL. Not budget, and not thousands and thousands of dollars. I'll have it built for me. I have a biz in SL and so don't want lag making me spend 3 hours to do some work which could otherwise be done in 1 hour. I'm also a heavy photoshop user and graphics handler for other work outside SL. I'd like to stick to NVIDIA video cards. Ever since AMD was called ATI and still located back in Toronto, I've had nothing but bad luck with those cards, so I have no stomach for them. Happy for those who have had good luck and like them. Bonus if the system is potentially Sansar ready (even though we have no idea what that will be, and even though this forum is SL,I know....) [ Even so, apparently they are making sure that your SL name is reserved for you in Sansar. https://modemworld.me/lab-chat-3-project-sansar/#id ] I used to be a tech support person in another life so I can understand BIG WORDS but I'm VERY rusty now with what's out there as my focus has shifted to programming. Qie Niangao last summer posted some starting suggestions. Any other opinions???? Video Card NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD R9 290 equivalent or greater CPU Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater Memory 8GB+ RAM Video Output Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output USB Ports 3x USB 3.0 ports plus 1x USB 2.0 port OS Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer Looks like the 970 would MORE than cover Sansar, according to the Lindens "The Geforce 970+ is not our minimum spec, that is and Oculus and Vive minimum spec for VR. For just using Sansar on a regular PC or desktop, we’re not going to require that high of a spec" ( https://modemworld.me/lab-chat-3-project-sansar/#graphics ) so I guess I can focus on a good mid-range computer for SL. OH, and the top top priority? Life has blessed me in the past few years with tinnitus. So a silent video card fan is a must, as noises aggravate the ear ringing.
I updated Nvidia drivers yesterday to v381.65. I have a Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 model and now all versions of SL are not even able to open. I read I needed to update to the newest Windows 10 Creators update which I did do, still not able to even load SL. I am now trying to roll back to an older driver but trying to find an old driver for them is like pulling teeth. So others might be having this issue. I hope and would appreciate any suggestions you might have to help. Thanks in advance. I've never ever had an issue in all my years playing SL in not being able to even load SL on all versions, so very frustrating. Windows 10 64 bit version. Vamerya Vallejo.
