I hope I have the right forum section for this and if not, I apologize ahead of time.


I will be migrating from FS9 to P3D V2.x in the next few months. I am hoping my hardware is up to the challenge.


I have an AMD A8-5500 @ 3.2 GHz, 8 GM of RAM (I think it is DDR3), I have an ASUS Mother Board, not sure which one, Win 7/64. I purchased a GTX 780 4 GB graphics card and I have to get a new power supply to handle the card.


Is this good enough to run P3D or do I have to grovel to my wife?


Thanks in Advance.

Hi Groovy,


As you know prepar 3d v2.2 or fsx are very CPU demanding like 90% and not much GPU demanding so i think you have to consider buying a better CPU like an i5 4670k or an i7 4770k. i suggest you to safe some money in the GPU buying a gtx760 or a 770 for getting a better CPU like those i mention above. 





Have a good day!!!
