Dunno what your budget is, but with the way GPU prices are these days thanks to miners then you might consider jumping up to a 1080.

1) Be aware that some sims (like DCS) are starting to use more than 16GB RAM.

2) Might want to consider a slightly better spec M/B for a minimal price increase.

3) I believe that SSHD tech offesr no advantage for flightsims. If space + price is an issue consider a regular HD (e.g. WD Black). An SSD will load much faster.

I have a hybrid SSHD for my very large orbx collection. It loads much faster than a HD but not as fast as SSD. Does a hybrid load my scenery faster I can't say but a Seagate 2tb isn't that much more than a HD so I went with it.

Ok here's another building question for starting would going Max ram of 128gb

Mother board 

ASUS ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Extended ATX Motherboards - Intel

 

With a Intel Core i7-6950X 25M Broadwell-E 10-Core 3.0 GHz

And a MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X 11G 11GB 352-Bit GDDR5X

 

Is any thing I should change? Or some of this too much
