That's some laundry list...as to the pertinent items that are critical to FSX even though I differ on a few things I would replace and any all AMD cards with Nvidia chipset cards. The newly released GTX 660TI (or better) is more than adequate for FSX at full HD 1080 resolutions. I am not knowledgable on multi-monitor configurations but Nvidia is the best suited for FSX since it's inception due to some geeky quirk I think in dds files(?) to this day....not sure but there is supposedly an inherent patented advantage to Nvidia cards with FSX. Please correct me on this so we know more than my parroting back what I read someplace years ago.

 

Also after re-reading your list I would at this time (new build) go with replacing all HDD's with SSD's exclusively. IMHO you will never regret that!

Why don't you first take a look into the guide, then post a hardware specs relevant for the computer and FSX? Like, how is USBFLASH, USBHD or anything "None" relevant to FSX? I see you are new, so I'll give you a small benefit of doubt.
