Should be fine, however fs9 does not support SLI, so i don't know if you run any other games the use SLI, if you don't, for fs it's a waste. As for FSX apparently SP1 fixed the core issues, and it will utilize somewhat of the 4 cores, however be aware that other than FSX there isn't alot of other software out that does uses it yet.

I mean what will be one of the best video cards fr that machine configuration and FS.You tell me FS does not support SLI, so what you recomend me to buy and FS9 and quad core will be ok?Thank you.

Quad-core for FS9 is a waste since its not utilizing them, for FSX, since SP1 people claim it will benefit from it although again don't expect to see all cores maxed out..IMO better to get a high clocked dual-core, then a lower clocked Quad-Core (my X6800 beats the Quad-Core 6700) As for the GPU, assuming your going to run a high resolution, you can get one of the 8800series since ATI hasn't brought out any DX10 GPUs yet.
