KT1578,

You are proposing to buy a system that I can only dribble over. I envy you incredibly. In fact the green is dribbling off me into the keyboard LOL.

My next question is what the hell are you doing with FSX?  P3Dv4 is vastly superior and you would get a lot more for your money if you went with that OR XPlane11 and you would also be future proofing as well.  That is MY opinion only. I am not, repeat, not critising you or your decision. I just feel that with that system you would enjoy simming much more and be less hassle free.

Your system though, I would think is brilliant but I cannot comment on the cost. I would imagine that at that price, you are going with a dealer, and if so, I would suggest purchasing the parts seperately and building it yourself. It can be cheaper, fun, and it is not terribly hard to do with ample advice available here if you run into problems.

Good luck to you SIR,

Regards

Tony

I probably will get P3D, the only thing is that with all the addons I have right now(thousands) I would never be able to get some of them back. But if I stick with FSX, I can just drag the folders over to a USB and stick them on my new computer. Thats why I would prefer FSX. I am still debating though about what to use, but P3D does look absolutely amazing.
