I Would Like To Buy A Fully Assembeled Fsx Comp For $1,700usd

Recommended Posts

Hello all,I would like to purchase a computer for FSX from one of the "buy online" retailers. I don't really have a preference when it comes to the vendor, I've had good experiences with Dell in the past, but I'm pretty open to whomever.. (I know, I know, I really just don't trust myself to not screw up and I really don't have the effort, will and time to source my parts and build on my own... ) I'm basically looking for suggestions - here are a list of my needs:- Just the box, keyboard and mouse - I don't need a monitor etc.- I would prefer an Intel processor- Graphic performance is probably most important to me. I will be running three displays through the TH2GO.- I would prefer to spend no more than $1700.00USDish range +-50$ - I hope this is enough info for some suggestions - There are so many options now it's hard to know what the best approach is.Thanks so much, in advance!The Captain.

DUO or QUAD?A quad is affordable but still expensive for me.... if I want to get the best out of FSX (which I understand depends mostly on CPU), will a duo core be enough or should I go for the quad core? (with 512 MB GPU)R

sorted by price and customability:www.avadirect.commy favorite-low prices, you can choose every single part: go to barebones tab, and customize a system (http://www.avadirect.com/Barebone_Systems)www.cyberpowerpc.comwww.ibuypower.comthese two sites are almost exactly alike-similar to ava direct, but you don't have as many options for custom parts and the prices are slightly higherwww.uberclok.comwww.overdrivepc.comthese two offer 3.8-4.2ghz custom overclocking with warranty, most systems are priced under $2k, not as cheap as the first 3 companies though.........www.velocitymicro.comwww. abs.comwww.pugetsystems.comwww.falcon-nw.comextremely expensive models-IMO not worth the $5-14k pricehope this helps
