A hints and tips guide
We often receive letters from readers seeking advice on upgrading their PC - particular if they’re on a budget. The following email from Ian Hughes is typical of these types of queries. “Dear PC Pilot, after at least ten years as an avid PC Pilot and reader, I intend to start computer flying again but I have many questions about the optimal PC specification for running different flight simulators such as FSX, Prepar3D and X-Plane. I have a budget of approximately £1,500 to spend on a computer and plan to fly aircraft such as the Boeing 737 and the BAe146 with third-party scenery. Are you able to help me with the computer specification so I can run the above add-ons with reasonable frame rates?
