I'm not an expert but it looks good to me. I would partition the HDD though or get one for just FSX. I like my 580 video card but doubt there's much difference between the 580 and 570 (except cost).You can oc to 5.0 with that system but it's not necessary. FSX doesn't care and it could cause overheating and other issues. 4.0 GHz is sufficient for FSX.Best regards,Jim

I think the 570 is plenty for FSX, dont spend the extra unless you have the cash to just spend. If you do, the I would be getting an SSD for FSX. For the PSU I would be looking more at the TX-650 at the least but personally would go for a HX-750 if you want to be going to 5.0GHz. Just my pick.
