    A 3.4 GHz CPU like this one can run v. 5, but do not expect a stellar performance, especially if you add add-ons of any kind.

    I have been simming for over 10 years. I have been running V5.1 for a week now and it is the most stable, high frame rate of any of the sims I have used from FSX, to P3D V4. I cannot find anything to complain about except I cannot get Carenado Synthetic Vision to work. I have only tried it on the Phenom 300.

    I gave up on MSFS 2020. Beautiful scenery but poor performance for dedicated simmers. Yoke capabilities is poor, unless you buy the "high priced spread" In my opinion it is mostly a game, developed by gammers not a true simulator. I personally cannot fly using a bunch of complex key commands. That is why I have controllers with multiple programmable switches, and a DIY 30 programable switches.

    Anyway, sorry for off topic. If you are running Windoz 10 and have a capable computer/graphics card, you should consider version 5.1.
