Here is one of the better guides for installing FSX - http://support.precisionmanuals.com/KB/a87/how-to-uninstall-and-reinstall-fsx.aspx.  Once installed and running properly (very important), begin adding your addons.  There should be no particular order for installation.  However, GEX replaces your default textures and is not placed in the Scenery Library.  I just reinstalled and installed GEX first.  I would look at installing REX or Ultimate Traffic next.

 

Best regards,

Jim

Something I did Jose when I reinstalled everything on my new SSD was to be sure to I tested out each piece after installing it.  Load up the MD-11, then give it a quick test flight..install EZDOK (hopefully you'll save your .ecs camera files so you won't have to rebuild them one by one) then check your camera views, install REX then take a look to make sure the correct textures are there, etc, etc.

 

I didn't want to run the risk of having something major screwing up, so I just took my time and didn't rush to get everything back to where it was.  Good luck.

I am about to start re installing fsx + add ons to & have been contemplating the best way to do it , I think, & I may be wrong , it might be best to install my aircraft first as fsx takes linger to load with more scenery in , so I think install a plane , fly it , shut fsx down , restart pc then install the next one til all are in , then traffic , vox atc, sceneries , Rex. What do you all think about that sequence.

Sounds great Also I will include a disk image after some installs, for example after installing all aircrafts, then after all scenaries and so on
