Clayton,Do you think you would be willing to try building a PC? It's pretty easy to do and a ton of people here would help you do it! I'm not going to bother picking apart that computer, but let's just say it's not what you want for FSX.

I think it looks alright, but it's got the 2600 cpu, not the 2600k. Given how important overclocking the cpu is for FSX performance, you want the unlocked multiplier that the 2600k offers. I'd also upgrade to one of the Gigabyte or Asus mobo's that they offer. As Cmeeks pointed out, you can probably build your own for less, and put in the parts you really want (their upgrade prices are extortionate).~Andrew
