Please advise on system spec

In my grounds 4 divorce cab I have the following spec:

Intel i3-2100 sandybridge

Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti

8 gb ram

It plays pretty much everything fine but it struggles with some future pinball tables such as stern tron and 3 angels, I would like to play everything flawlessly in my vpin cab, including unit3d pinball. I can't seem to find a recommended spec for fp or unit3d pinball, what would you guys recommend for my vpin cabinet build?

Hoping to nip into www.overclockers.co.uk this weekend to pick something up.

Thanks

You will need a fair bit on Unit3D, those pixel lighting kills it for me when you go to cabinet view. Desktop view isn't no way near as bad with lots of settings wacked up.

I think i5 should just about do that (but have heard troubles), FP it will piss through. I never buy intel, that's because I've never needed too, I always get by with AMD cpus. I'm not recommending against intel it though. If you got the money go for an i7 and then you won't have to worry for a good while.

BUY CHEAP BUY TWICE, BUY WEAK BUY TWICE.

DAMN - Nice Link!!!

I'm using an I5 @ 3.4ghz with 8gb DDR3 (WinXP only sees ~ 3.5) and a 480GTX (1.5gb)

I would say it can handle almost anything - My only exception is when I run Avatar and the B2S, I get an out of memory error.

Without the B2S, it's fine. Every other B2S out there (with table) is fine.

Guess what I'm saying is: If you have overkill now, in couple years, it'll be just a "good" setup.

If you can afford it - go for it :-)

STAY AWAY FROM SLI - From what I've read, NOBODY has seen any benefits from SLI on VP.

I believe every I5 / I7 motherboard with support SLI - just don't use it for SLI.

That video card and amount of ram should be more than enough. I would say your cpu is under powered. If you can afford a quad core i7 w/hyperthreading, you should be future proof for a while. That is what I just put in the cab I just built and I haven't found anything I can't run yet, of the normal arcade/pinball type stuff.
