As a certified computer geek (Masters of Science in Information Management…I think it even says “Geek” somewhere on the diploma), I have tried several times to send my DCS CTD logs via the support system, as directed. However, they are always too big. Is there some other way to get them to the people that want to see them?
Sometimes there is really no choice but to bite the bullet and reinstall. Windows can get past the point of being able to be cleaned up, how long that takes depends on user activity of course.
You can also look up the BSOD error codes and see if there is a common thread. If it’s just software, you’re stuck. It could however be bad HD sectors, corrupted video drivers, bad RAM, or something else that could be remedied without a reload.
This might be out-of-memory related. Check ram usage in task manager.
From Normandy module on DCS e-shop:

Yesterday on a simple mission i flew 3 hours without pronlems…
Now the problem is…
Can i add ram, overclock Cpu and expect some Vr capability or should just save for a new system?
I72600k is pretty old, at the same time i wonder if i can save on cpu and invest on a better gpu later…
Imo you could upgrade mainboard, CPU and RAM. With that, the GPU should make VR possible on lowest setting, but it might not be fun to use. You can then decide to invest in some more graphics horse power.
I doubt VR in DCS will be enjoyable with your current system, even overclocked and with beefed up RAM.
