I'm in the market for a new motherboard and CPU to run Train Simulator 2013. Could anyone here offer me some suggestions on what might be some suitable hardware to run this program reliably? At the moment, with the hardware failure I've encountered this year, I would merely like the computer to last at least 3 months without it turning into a paperweight again. My budget is around $150 to $200 for the 2 items.

These are some of the specs -

Thermaltake TR2 600
4GB DDR Ram (exact details unsure of)
Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Antec Sonata lll case
ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB


Any help would be appreciated smile.gif

I would Suggest an Asus motherboard with crossfire support, and add a second HD 4850 , and an AMD FX processor With a cooler Master Hyper 212 plus cooler and an over clock.

Railworks doesn't support crossfire.
