My machine meets the recommended spec except I have an i5 6600. I did look at the difference between that and the 8400 and it's not much so I'm hopeful,assuming I buy it. It's probably going to be very expensive just to fly over my house.

Mine meets or exceeds the ideal specs, i9 9900k, 64GB RAM, RTX2080, SSD with >150GB, 200Mb/s connection.

Don't think I will be getting it though, until my income stream recovers and health is assured, games and gadgets are out the question smile

Glad I updated my PC at Christmas time and I hope this one lasts at least as long as the last one did Oct 2009 - Dec 2019.

My CPU is barely above min spec.
My 2600k is 9yo. Still going strong @4.8ghz. Curious to see if MFS will use it fully and if I'll finally be ''forced'' to upgrade

And dont forget, if you want full quality with streaming, it's about 22.5gb/hour of data that you'll need to download. Guess some will have to upgrade their internet contract for their monthly cap with their providers

It's not common right now but I wouldn't be surprised if it does eventually become used more often thanks to the explosion in the number of people who stream movies and tv shows. Your country has barely over 5 million people so I don't think you have much to worry about. smile

Ouch, I pay 65€/month for 1gbits/s and some pay per view TV channels, and all home internet plans are unlimited in France.

The only part of my internet that is limited is mobile data and that's 6Gb per month ATM.
I don't think I'v had capped broadband for at least 20 years.

I pay €133/month ($201cn/$143us/£116uk) for unlimited 200Mb/s internet, Cable TV, landline telephone, 2 mobile phones with 1GB/month download and a reserve of 9GB if you temporary go over the 1GB

Ah, just checked to confirm the details, the above was what we had, it is now unlimited @300Mb/s down and 20Mb/s up, and 9GB per month for mobile internet, free unlimited calls/texts on both house and mobile phones.

There are faster speeds available and on my package I can have up to 5 sim cards and the apps for surfing via the service provider do not count towards data use on the mobile phones, so, we can watch TV, Facebook, WhatsApp on the mobile without using up the data, that was something else I just found out smile explains why I havn't had data charges for my wife's Facebook/WhatsApp use while out and about wink

MSFS was always (until they stopped making it) my only justification for building (and paying for) a truly good gaming PC.

But there were times I was nowhere near top specifications and it was still quite workable and impressive to me...

I think they've learned from their mistakes (Flight) and they're going to do it right again. I hope I'm not wrong.
