I purchased a gtx 1070 video card but that is all so far because I don’t know what mobo, cpu or ram to get. I was going to get the ryzen 7 2700x but I only play to games on my computer. FSX and DCS. DCS is apparently single thread and I’m not sure what FSX is but do I need that big of a processor? Do I need a top of the line motherboard? What ram do I choose?  I have been searching for a week or so now watching YouTube videos and reviews all over the web.  It’s pretty much just a daily PC and to use for DCS and FSX.

If it's a pure Flight Sim rig, ditch the AMD processor
