Don't see why it wouldn't work!  By the way, I fixed your link so it would work!

Awaiting the new Microsoft Flight Sim and the purchase of a new system.  Running a Chromebook for now! :cool:

I think you will need a significantly larger SSD if you plan to install P3D on it. My P3D folder is 256 Gb in size and that only has a few add-ons in it. The remainder is in other folders and drives. Any SSDs that are almost filled up are slower than ones that aren't.  See https://pureinfotech.com/why-solid-state-drive-ssd-performance-slows-down/

I would opt'd for an Intel based PC.  Current new AMD's are pretty good, but that's an older AMD which is not so good on single thread performance relative to Intel.

Cheers, Rob.

The computer you are considering will work very well for running FSX, but keep in mind that FSX is better in its Steam (Dovetail) incarnation than the original MS version, so if you don't have that version it would be worth getting it (Currently the Steam Edition of FSX is £19.99, but it frequently goes on sale for about a fiver on holidays, so look out for an Easter discount).

Bear in mind that even the fastest computer in the world will eventually run out of memory with FSX, since it can only assign a limited amount of RAM (4Gb) with it being a 32 Bit program and there is nothing which can be done about that. That means the computer you are thinking of getting will be more than adequate for running FSX with as many add-ons as you can get away with until it falls over with an Out Of Memory issue, but you will be able to run a lot of stuff before than happens.

Hello,

I am looking to get back into flight simulator x and am looking for a new pc below £600 to run it. I will be running it in 1080p with all the scenery and a few adds ons.
 

Will this computer  https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F383162392681 do the trick or will it be be too slow??

any help would be greatly appreciated 

 

To be honest @Wlloydy98,  I would encourage you to wait a little longer for Microsoft's up and coming newest simulator, in case you haven't heard: MFS2020. Main time, save yourself a few dollars more for a way better experience.

I would check this out go to ccl computers online store none are showing 4.25ghz.

I would also check out delivery, gaming PC do not fall into essential trading under the present lockdown and may be restricted. Amazon don't class PC parts as essential and may be delayed.

Why? If the company is still trading online, unless I've just missed it somewhere, I'm not aware of any restriction on what you can have delivered. I had a bunch of craft bits and pieces delivered the other day and they hardly qualified as "essential".

I am still using my I5-2500K with a gtx 1060 and have no trouble flying p3d, xplane, or fsx at very acceptable settings. The trick is to find one that can easily overclock to 4.5 ghz natively, with air cooling.
