A few things:-I can see you are going through dell. Don't. 1) they fill it with pointless programs that bog down ur system. 2) you would save yourself so much more money by building it yourself. -Dont get a 5970. FWaste of money on an FSX system, as FSX doesn't use dual GPU's. Save money and get the nVidia GTX480, you also get less issues with the nvidia card in FSX.-Whats that rubbish about 9GB tri channel ram? Get 6GB tri channel (3x2GB), 1600MHz C6 or C7 RAM. -Change your hard drive. Get the following: A 1TB 7200RPM 64MB Western Digital Caviar Black A dedicated SSD or Velociraptor for FSX. Putting FSX on the same harddrive as everything else will do you no favours. -Get a decent case and CPU cooler and OC the 980x to around 4.2GHz.

Actually 2 GPU performance is below single GPU peformance in FSX because the second GPU adds stu... stut... stutter!And don't forget to turn hyperthreading off in your BIOS! (HT adds nothing to FSX except more heat from the associated circuitry, lowering your max OC.)Cheers,- jahman.

That's fine. If it gives you the option to select a RAM manufacturer, choose corsair dominator or whatever the highest is, as the others will be budget or value ram. Also, if it gives you the option, choose a aftermarket cooler for the processor. Usually they give the option for liquid cooling, once again go for the best one.

Chris,I will have two hard disk. I will install "only" FSX to the second "ADDITIONAL HARD DRIVE 300GB - SATA-II, 3Gb/s, 10k RPM, 16MB Cache HDD" and all addons "REX, UTC, PMDG MD11,747, CS727,CS707 and PC System" install to the first "HARD DRIVE 500GB - SATA-II, 3Gb/s, 7,200RPM, 16MB Cache HDD "Is this the correct way?Thanks

No. Install anything FSX related to the 10k disc, then all other programs, games etc unrelated to the 500GB. OS also should be on the 500GB.

Sorry, If I understood correctly, I should install all FSX and FSX addons "REX, UTC, PMDG MD11,747, CS727,CS707 to 10k disk and others on the 500GB?

Yes. FSX plus all addins you have for it on the 10k. Other non FSX programs or games go on the 500GB.

asanal,You should not install all of your addons to the FSX drive. REX for example should be installed on your OS drive, if not the all of the REX textures will be taking up valuable realestate on your FSX drive. If you use GEX, it should reside on your OS drive as well. If you use ASE or FEX they should also reside on your OS drive. Any aircraft or scenery addons should be installed on the FSX drive.
