Choosing a PC for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft Flight Simulator is an ambitious game. Still, it doesn't have seriously high system requirements for playing on anything but the best gaming desktop PC. All you need is an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel i5-4460 CPU, Radeon RX 570 or NVIDIA GTX 700 GPU, and 8GB of RAM. All of our recommended PCs in this collection meet these requirements.

If we were to offer a single recommendation, we'd go with the CyberPowerPC Gamer Master 7500. Not only does it look sleek, but it's also got everything packed inside that you'll need, including an RX 6600 GPU and Ryzen 5 5600G processor at an affordable price. It's possible to even upgrade the PC at a later date with a more capable Ryzen and NVIDIA GPU if you want to play some more demanding games with RTX features like DLSS.

The Skytech Shiva has enough to handle the game without destroying your bank balance. It's also entirely made from standard parts, allowing you to swap, sell, and upgrade parts as desired.
