Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

If you knock the graphics settings down from Ultra then even the years old 1080 like mine will be fine. Its just that after using flight Sims for years I really seek out the ultimate in fidelity and smoothness. I see your point but I don't want to spend loads to find out I don't play it as much as ...

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

I have a 9900KS and traditionally the CPU has been hit pretty hard on Prepar3d, but under MSFS that CPU is working much lower. I also have a 1080 which is maxed out under ultra gfx settings in the sim, but am planning on getting a 3080 when it launches next month. That will lift frames considerably...

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

I used Punch for my custom PC, still working perfectly 18 months later and was cheaper than the more well known builders. They have a good configurator on their website so you can have a play and compare prices. That would be good if I knew what I was doing/needed! Can anyone give me an idea of wha...

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

Aw bollocks. I’d been considering replacing the whole thing anyway due to the noise. What would a decent machine cost that would have the spec to play this? I’m not bothered about a brand name. Any suggestions?

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

Well if I can upgrade my PC I'll be investing in a decent control system too. Can anyone tell me from the pictures I posted if I can upgrade mine?

Thx for Windows product key

</scribbles>
You're welcome! It was for the XPC code, I thought that might be relevant, the software is a clone of my Windows 10 laptop, the hard drive with that version of Windows 7 on failed a long time ago.

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

Ok, the exact model is Dell Inspiron 660S, I've taken a picture of a label on the top of the case if that helps. I took the surround off the fan to give a better view.

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

Time for a few upgrades. Gt620 is 8 years old now, it will be holding you back more than the processor. Is it a desktop computer? Upgrades for old stuff can be pretty cheap and transform the experience. My boys gaming pc is based on similarly ancient architecture yet plays all the modern stuff he w...

Just buy it on Steam and ask for a refund if you PC can’t run it, you usually get refunded after a few hours.
Oh really, I didn’t know that.

I’d love this but having not played a game on a PC for years I have no idea if mine would run it or not!

At last something he’s involved with actually seeing the light of day. i’ll believe that when I see it! :lol: The launch time for this is even worse than the Mclaren F1. I guess if they sell a handful maybe it will also end up appreciating to many times it’s original price. Evo are saying the run o...
