are the following specs sufficient to run P3D with PMDG addons?

Intel Core i5 - 16GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 - 1TB Hard Drive + 120GB Solid State Drive

You should probably ask this (move it) to the Hardware subforum.

In answer to your question -- I think the video card is marginal.  I'd look to at least a 1070 card in light of the advancing visuals we're seeing.

With reasonable settings an i5 (which one?) of the later generation would be "ok".  i7 better of course.

  • Which i5 CPU?
  • Have you overclocked it?
  • Which GTX 1060? 3GB or 6GB?
  • At what screen resolution are you intending to run P3D?
  • AA and AF settings?
  • Complex weather?
  • Detailed payware airports?

Chris let me try to research some of that.

Currently i know it wont be overclocked, 6 gb on the GTX1060, weather, a couple of airports and the PMDG 777. My friend is looking to get back into flight sim and doesnt want to spend more than 1000 dollars.
