Looking for a budget PC.

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

I currently run default FSX on a crappy laptop (i3, intel 4000 graphics). I've saved up a bit of money and I am looking for the best budget gaming PC.

I have a budget of £500/$650

I'm looking for a PC with specs for this price that can run FSX with addon's smoothly, I will be flying PMDG 777 in FlyTampa scenery's.

Thanks for your help guys, I appreciate it :)

Chris

For that money you could build your own desktop. Super Budget performer would be to use any of the Pentium G series CPU's with Asus/MSI Mobo. There are many websites available where you construct a virtual PC online using different parts,(and YouTube instructional videos) when your happy with the system you want, just order the parts used, which are sent for you to assemble. It's not  a daunting task and the rewards are immense

I would go for this

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/zksJXH

coming in at around £400.  Buy yourself a Win10 licence from ebay (u can find them for less than a fiver if you look properly). Use the extra £100 to either add an SSD for the OS, or up the graphics card to a 1060.

Just have a look at the reviews on the cpu!
