FSX Computer and Monitor Opinions

Recommended Posts

My 12 year old grandson has recently shown interest in becoming a pilot. I purchased a yoke and pedals and have been running FSX on a MS Surface. I am looking very strongly at upgrading to a faster computer and monitor setup. Can anyone provide input on what would work best, particularly monitor wise? Multi monitor vs extra wide monitor? Any minimum levels to start with processor and video cards? Any other pitfalls to watch out for during purchase? Thanks in advance for any assist.

Welcome to the AVSIM forums! :happy:  While awaiting answers to your question, be sure to click on the Forums tab at the top of the page and scroll down to the Hardware discussions forums.  Plenty of good reading about computers and all associated hardware that goes with them.

I love FSX but X-Plane is much easier to get up and running to get him started.
