    Ok. I'm seriously impressed. I know, I know - I will need an insane computer and a superfast internet connection to really get the most out of this. But this is a quantum leap as far as I'm concerned. MSFS got me through my instrument rating and it was boring and tedious. For fun flying when I'm deskbound for some reason or out of gas money to put in my airplane - I'm looking forward to this.

    It's not just the incredible scenery ( you can see your own house apparently) but real time, incredibly realistic weather and winds and a completely new approach to modeling the flight dynamics.

    Take my money!

    You'll need a computer circa at least 2014.. but if you've got money for a new system 3rd gen Ryzen would be the way to go

    Definitely gonna want to get at least a GTX 1070 and a 4-core processor, and 16gb of RAM to run the game.

    I would target an RTX 2080, an 8-core Ryzen processor, 32gb of RAM and an NVME SSD with ample space on it. That in a well-rounded build will probably run in the $1500 range by next year so it's not even that bad in gaming PC terms.
