Upgrading to Prepar3D

Dear PC Pilot

After several years of flying in FSX, I am finally making the jump to Prepar3D (P3D). My PC is running Windows 10 with the following hardware:

• Processor: Intel i7 6700K

• Memory: 8GB

• Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 680 with 2GB VRAM

• Hard Drive: 2TB SATA.

Is my computer powerful enough to run P3D? My FSX setup also has several add-ons such as Active Sky Next as well as Orbx and Aerosoft airports. I primarily fly the PMDG 737NGX and the Aerosoft Airbus A320 series. Will these add-ons work in Prepar3D?

Kind regards, Dave
