I cant run Flt Sim 2020 on my computer.

Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I have installed Flt Sim 2020 but I get a message to say the computer specification is not good enough and I may get errors.  Programme loads but half way through opening it shuts down.  What are my options with updating my computer or is it more cost effective to rerplace the computer.

I am going to let you look-up your computer specs, here.

MSFS2020

If you have the recommended CPU:

Ryzen 5 1500X / Intel i5-8400, and 16GB motherboard RAM,  GTX 1060 4 GB Video RAM

If you want the better play,  CPU:

Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X / Intel i7-9800X and 32GB motherboard RAM,  8GB Video RAM  RTX 2080 level card.

Now the RTX 3000 series is coming available, either the RTX 3080 or the RTX 3070

PSU of 750W-850W.    That means do not purchase any of the TP01, TE01, TG01, or M01 series.  All those have an HP proprietary designed PSU, and will not satisfy your needs.  Ask before you leap.

Best style MSFS joysticks are running $240-280

 

So to play a $120 program you will spend: computer(see below)  $2700+ joystick + MSFS2020 = $3100 USD.  But your UK, so add VAT.

If you wait for an HP 875-1040ST (customized) with a 1TB NVMe SSD, 1-2 TB data drive, RTX 3070 or 3080, and wired mouse/keyboard.  The problem will be the PSU,  IMHO the RTX 3080 in this configuration needs an 850W PSU.   The specification page only shows an RTX 2080 and Shadow 750W.
