No need to. Your primary drive is an SSD anyway. Very nice system! A little steep but very nice.

I would only use SRT if you have an existing system. Much easier than having to copy the OS over. But since this 'll be brand new, wack the OS straight on.

One 3000.00 computer will not run Fs as well as two 1000.00 computers! Sounds financially irresponsible to me!
Some folks want performance over cheap hardware. Doh.gif Though I'd skip on some of that stuff and save $1000, it's a nice system

Just comments: You do not need 1000W PSU, a good quality 750W Corsair is more than enough on a single GPU.Why buy a Z68 board if you weren't going to use it. You won't see any FSX benefit unless you fly the same route same weather, but other applications may use it. I would only do it on an Intel SSD311 if it was me.You really do not need the SB sound card.I have a preference for 2x4GB memory. When you say @ 5GHz, is that at all costs? Whistle.gif

If he can afford to pay $1300 for a monitor, then he can probably afford anything.
