Looking for a new sim to run on a medium PC Configuration

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow simmers,

I've been flying in flight sims since FS2000. The last sim I used was FS9. I've been away from the flight sim world since then. 

Now that I have some time, I thought I would get back in the air, I am confused as to which sim should I get since there are quite a few available options. I did give X-plane 11 demo a spin, but that doesnt work too well on my computer.

My specs are

Operating System
    Windows 10 Home 64-bit
    Intel Core i7 4720HQ @ 2.60GHz    60 °C
    Haswell 22nm Technology
    8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 (11-11-11-28)
    LENOVO Lenovo Y50-70 (U3E1)    65 °C
    Standard Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
    BenQ G2220HD (1920x1080@60Hz)
    Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Lenovo)
    4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M (Lenovo)    55 °C
    ForceWare version: 385.41
    SLI Disabled
    931GB Western Digital WDC WD10S21X-24R1BT0-SSHD-8GB (SATA)    52 °C
    931GB TOSHIBA External USB 3.0 USB Device (USB (SATA)

What sim would you recommend that I could run smoothly on this configuration ?

I would install FS9 again, but cant find the discs. 

The only place FSX is available now is Steam ?

I was running FSX:SE on an I7-930 (2.8Ghz) and a GTX-660 w/o any problems.  Though I do have to say I wasn't running any CPU intensive addons.
