It's a dual core maybe this woyld make a significant improvement in FSX which I have installed with UTX GEX?Replace the videocard with a ATI 3850 the most powerful AGP videocard available.Upgrading Win XP to Vista. Maybe the better Vista memory management can help performence? And with a 3850 I would get access to DX10.I might point out that my mobo seems allergical against OC. Trying that and it seems I shoulkd expect trouble.

Agreed with Jason, I just wouldn't spend money on the S939 rig unless you really like it. I mean, I still have my S939 box and I use it for approach charts, ASX, etc.

I'm prone to agree. I asked about opteron 185 since I saw it for sale on tradera (eBay) and thought if I can get it cheap. Well that's not going to happen. I'm surprised about how high bid obsolete hardware gets.But what kind of budget new build could get me next generation performence?
