    With that terrain mapping id imagine thats an SSD on its own. I have an NVMe drive just for DCS.

    That's really vague, as an SSD could go from 128Gb to over a Tera. I'm thinking they should allow for individually selecting what airports to install and the level of map details.

    I can't wait to see how long it takes me to figure out how to fly and land a Boeing. Never been into planes IRL but I love MS Flight Sim.

    Yes i have one only for DCS myself... With that kind of game it's not so strange, some have even a complete machine only for DCS or FS.

    Are they all real airports of what? Is the four letter code the real name of it?

    Impressive graphics are done only with several cities. Most of the world has done pretty bad totally procedurally with many building that have nothing to do with reality and many buildings without textures at all.
