Building a PC for FSX Steam

Postby paul01942 » 21 Dec 2015 13:17

I currently have a desktop PC not being used for anything, its a HP Compaq Elite Ultra-slim PC,
it has 10 USB ports running on Windows 7 or 8 i think.

the system information is as follows:
Processor = Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 duo CPU E8500 @ 3.16GHz 3.17GHz
Installed Memory (RAM) = 4.00GB
System Type = 32-bit Operating system, x64-based processor

My question is can I install more memory and also have a very good graphics card installed in this PC I want to use it solely for Flight Simulator nothing else, obviously I need it to have vast memory for my many FSX steam addons.

Can it be done with this PC type?

I can email pictures of this PC along with the labels and PC size

For FSX I wouldn't bother with that hardware, even with more memory and a good graphics card.

Can anyone give me a suggestion of what specs I need for a good desk top PC, to run FSX steam with many many add ons?

Don't want to pay £1000s want to keep it realistic, what do I need to gain fluidity within FPS etc how much memory, processor speed etc

Thank you in advance for any input
