After 100's of hours of practice in Star Citizen we have realized that, particularly in dogfighting, having a system that can run Star Citizen at 60fps or above, keeps you competitive in the game. Having said that, Ive put together some computer setups that I know would give you the best experience per dollar amount, while trying to keep pricing reasonable.

This is a system I designed for Wazze. The Mobo is SLI/Crossfire ready.

Id suggest when you have the $ also throwing another 1080 in there and adding a Nvidia Brand SLI High Bandwidth Bridge to get an average extra 30% overall increase in output from the 2 cards; which would in effect make this a very beast system.

The airflow of the case is pretty top notch given it has 3x140mm fan slots plus more.

Please note that if you plan on upgrading the Under $1700 system above, you will more than likely need to upgrade the power supply also.

Prices are always subject to change and the prices in this post may go up or down after the initial post date.

I hope this helps. :)
