Microsoft Flight Simulator Computer Requirements

The system requirements are high, and a gaming PC with a new graphics processing unit is vital for successfully running MFS. GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER or better GPU is required.

16gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a computer. 8gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Also, note that at least 150gb of hard drive space is required, so make sure that your PC has enough space for your needs.
