Microsoft Flight Sim has come out and I got the deluxe package, now will my computer run it is the question. The computer I built 3 years ago was built to last meaning I built it to play games at max levels and should run anything I put into it.Now that I think about it when Flight Sim X came out in 2009 the system I was running only ran it so well, as I got better and better computers I was able to turn it up to full.
I have checked and it seems to be hit and miss with the new 2020 Sim, some people are not having problems. And I checked the CPU and GPU and it’s only running at ( CPU 70%) and (GPU 80%) it just makes the fans on the computer run loud.
I checked to see the price on a video card upgrade from the Nvidia 1060 6gb card I have to the 1080 card 8gb and I’m looking at $399. But there is hope the new Nvidia 3080 cards should be out soon and the price has been leaked at $1499. and that might put it out of my price range.
Update since I started this post a new patch has come out that has reduced the amount of CPU and GPU needed to play the game. Now with the CPU that i am using (Intel i7 7700) should be able to handle this game it’s just the video card that needs a update.
I will be updating this from time to time and if you need some help with this email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can let you know how to optimise your system to play it.
