Murphy's Law of FS
No matter how much memory your computer has, it won't be enough for the latest flight-sim versions.

Your motherboard's memory chip capacity will be full when you need to upgrade for the latest flight-sim versions.

The aircraft you download from the internet will crash your computer, that is.

If a navaid frequency in your flight-sim game is erroneous, it will be a navaid that you need to use.

The flight-sim manufacturer's patch will take all day to download but will not improve performance.
