Is this a good PC? (processor or graphics card?)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is this a good PC?

PROCESSOR: Intel i3 7100 3.9GHz Dual Core

MEMORY:1x 8GB DDR4 - 2133MHz

GRAPHICS:GEFORCE GTX1050 2GB 

STORAGE:1TB SATA III

 

Will this run FSX, PMDG and Fly Tampa scenery.

Should I get a higher Processor and lower Graphics card, I can get i7 GTX 1050, what's more important for FSX high processor or high graphics card?

 

Thanks,

Chris

Hi,

If you intend to only use FSX I would say it's OK.
But if you would like to try something else in the future, I would suggest to get a better CPU (i7 ...). FSX and later simulators still rely more on CPU power than on GPU power.

Best Regards

Frank

There are other sources for W10 as well as Ebay of course. Kinguin is a popular site. You buy the OEM licence and download W10 from MS. £21. Don't think many have had failed keys.

Be careful of the super cheap licences, more likely to be keys already used.
