re: Flight sim guys
Yes and no. I just got a $900 build for $600 prebuilt. I threw all the specs into PC Part picker and the prices would’ve been $900 and some change. But the prebuilt was listed on Newegg for $900 something and it was on sale for $600 and some change.

i5 8th Gen 8400 (2.80 GHz)
8 GB DDR4
1 TB HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Edit: it’s listed at $899
And it was $679 when I bought it.

re: Flight sim guys
It was on sale because the CPU and GPU are last generation. Also, that build should be around $700 anyway. What motherboard, power supply, storage, and ram are in it?

Here's a quick one I just threw together

You can spend a lot less than $2500 and run Xplane 11 in 1080p.

I ran it on 1080P with a i5 4670k and a 970. For flight sims, you don't need 60 fps. You can usually get away with it running about 35 fps.

Flight simming is a fun hobby, and you can get as into it as you want. For example, I run real orthographic imagery, detailed elevation mesh, real world weather, several third party planes, etc. It can be very intimidating when you first start, but you can learn it.
