Windows 7 Home Premium 64-BIT

War Thunder is my best choice imo: War Thunder on Steam

But if you like just flying planes, I'd reccomend: Save 80% on Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition on Steam

Win 7 Home Prem x64 SP1

For GenAv simulation: FSX Gold Edition with FScene package by JustFlight. For warbird sim: War Thunder or Wings of Prey by Gaijin. They are pretty much the same sim.

For an actual "Flight Simulator" there is no other as good as X Plane. You MUST have a good computer to run it . Check it will thank me. Actual airports and aircraft of all sorts are available. Been X Plane active for 6 years now.X-Plane.Org Forum - Unreal Portal

i5 @ 3.4ghz (o'cd to4.2)
16Gb ram @ 2400mhz

Arma 2 and 3 have some pretty good helis and planes though they are more military simulators there are some good user made flight missions and some roles online that require flying! Honestly Arma 3 is probably one of my favorite games! just takes some time to get used to the controls...
