Simulator PCs

Choosing the Right Simulator PC

With so many components on offer, selecting a new simulator PC can seem daunting. This chart will help you by suggesting which PC configuration is right for you.

Please note that this chart offers suggestions only, your individual needs and demands could differ from our recommendations. For each simulator we'll provide several recommendations based on the quality of the experience you'll have when playing the game - Good, Better or Best graphics.

By experience we mean the quality of the graphics and the frame rate that you will experience. A fast frame rate is crucial as it means the on-screen action is smooth and seamless, while a slow frame rate means the on-screen action is jerky and irregular, making accurate driving or flying impossible. Also bear in mind what resolution gaming monitor you intend to use – a higher resolution monitor makes simulators look sharper and clearer – but requires a more powerful graphics card.

Scan 3XS flight simulator PCs have been designed to get you into the air with the minimum of fuss and bother, so you can concentrate on the important job of learning to take-off, manoeuvre and land.
