Looking for new computer for FSX/Steam Edition.

Recommended Posts

Hey I am a first time FS-X user with the intent of playing online. I was scoping out desktop computers today and wondered what you guys though about the Cyberpower GMA3000BST for use with FS-X and Steam Edition. A couple of questions.

1) Can I run these games off of Windows 10?

2) Is this computer a good option for the game, or would you all have a better recommendation? I am looking to spend between $400-900 on the computer, and don't plan to really install much more on the computer. I am trying to run the game with the expansion pack and full graphics.

3) Have you all had success using the wireless cards in your desktops to play FS-X?

Would not recommend that one.  Among other reasons, Radeon video cards have never been the choice for these flight simulators.

I bought a Cyberpower PC four years ago - Intel 6700K (not O/C)  with GForce GTX 970 - MSI,  and have had no real issues with it.  I did install a second SSD 500G card myself dedicated to add-on sceneries.  I also installed FSX-Steam back then and have had very few problems with that as well.

But the PC came with Win 10 pre-installed via a Cyberpower license.  No reason for you not to upgrade to Win 10...
