    I'll qualify that statement slightly. Start here: https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php sort by value. Ideally you want an nVidia about 14,000+ on the 3D benchmark. Basically the sweet...

    Something you might like to consider is the "normal" system would be a GTX 1660 but many people on the forum run RTX 2070 GPUs. Faster GPUs are not unknown. These are people who know TANE/TS19 and...

    With an RTX 2070 which scores 14,000 on the 3D mark I have my sliders set back from max to get reasonable frame rates. With an GTX 1660 at 11,000 being generous you're expecting to have the sliders...

    There are no black and white rules. It all depends on the content you want to run the number of pixels on the screen and which version of Trainz you are running.

    An i7 will get you 2% more frame rates than an i5, an i9 will gain you another 1% but remember these are estimates only.

    If you must then buy a used dell from https://www.dellrefurbished.com/ and look for a win 7 machine. I have a Win 7 machine to support an old scanner but it is never connected to the Internet.

    I meant the GTX 1050 TI as being something reasonable. A series 4000 intel CPU will run Middleton for laptops in TS19 at 20 odd frames per second but it very much depends on what content you want to...

    A tablet running windows 10 will work but don't hold your breath. Middleton for laptops might be the only layout that will run.

    It depends what you want to do and how far you are prepared to go. Trainz is extremely flexible and has a much wider range of content than many others. Picking out the nice stuff is no especially...

    Have you thought about a lap top? The normal business ones will just about run TANE if you're very very selective hence Middleton for lap tops. Blender will run and I'm sure people can suggest a...

    TS19 has interesting lighting but you need to work to get it look right. TANE allows you to select content by author in the game, TS19 the latest beta does but not the released version. TS19...

    The only comment I'd make is for TS19 and TANE 2560x1440 is a lot more pixels to drive.

    1920 by 1080 I think is the size. Anything bigger and you need a liquid nitrogen cooled RTX 2080TI.
