Looks good.  I would suggest a SSD for the sim though.  Why buy all those parts and bottleneck it with a HDD?

 

Samsung's 840 Evo in whatever variety is good (now that their new firmware fixed the previous issue).

There's a 250GB for 120 bucks on amazon (they're just getting silly cheap now - the 500GB is 240 - I spent like 260 just a few months ago)

I took your advice and bought the Samsung EVO for my FSX stuff.

I've got P3d on my hdd and FSX in my SSD.

 

I'd say FSX loads in 1/5 the time vs p3d.
