Ok rig for fs9/fsx

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I'm ready to buy a new computer and got some suggestions here on what to look for. My budget is around $1000.00. Never built a computer before, so still deciding if I should do it myself or purchase a built one. Was looking at this computer with win7. Don't know about the liquid cool. All in all, this is kind of the setup I'm looking for. Another member here listed some parts from Newegg as follows:


GIGABYTE GV-N760OC-2GD GeForce GTX 760 2GB - $259.99
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 650W - $89.99
G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) - $76.99
ASRock Z87 Extreme3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 - $137.99
Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz - $239.99
SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SSD - $174.99


This looks like a good setup. Going all new I would probably need a new case (midsize or full I don't know), HDD and DVD/CD, and win7 (retail vs OSE haven't decided- $100.00 dif). I do have a 600w PSU and a GTX 550ti that I could use if needed. This setup would put me over $1000.00. That's why I was looking at Cyberpowerpc. Anyway, any comments suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced.
