Ok everyone, I had it working but since i've been back from Iraq and updated DCS and my modules now I'm back to splash and crash. If I delete the saved game files it will start to the main menu but as soon as I go in and change my settings and save everything I Crash.....

WTF? Have you welded a pocket nuclear reactor to that PC?
On a more serious note, wipe everything (EVERYTHING, including registry and user files) then do a full reinstall, that fixed most of my problems.

I know I've seen it a few times on the ED Forums but from what I remember DCS has some issues with SLI 1080s, or just SLI for that matter.

https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php? ... =dual+1080

Not sure that is the issue or helps in anyway but that is the first thing that came to mind when I saw the specs on your rig; dual 1080s cause issues for DCS. I'm just glad you spent the deployment money on PC parts and not something silly like a Motorcycle or Ford Mustang like 99% of the people I went to Iraq with did :lol: Welcome home BTW
