Pas besoin d'un i7 pour avoir la configuration recommandée, ce jeu je me fait tourner en ultra avec ceci :
CPU : Intel core 2 Duo E6750 2,66GHz
RAM : 6 Go
C.G : Nvidia GeForce GT 630 2 Go DDR3
HDD : 1 To
Ecran 19" Packard Bell (résolution 1440 x 900).
Aucun lag. Tourne à merveille.Pour ceux qui ont une GT 610, ne mettez pas à fond (ne tient plus la route)

Can anyone tell me if Microsoft Flight benefits from hyper threading? I am considering either an i5 or i7 for an upgrade hence the question. Also will it benefit from dual GPU's in SLI (I understand that FSX doesn't)? Really appreciate your input.
