SDK= "Software Development Kit" - it provides information and examples of how to develop add-ons for FS.It is only available with the deluxe version and must be installed manually from the CD.

Look in C:(if that is where your FSX loaded)Program FilesMicrosoft Games. If you see a folder called Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK, that it loaded automaticly. SDK is set of tools for altering or adding to FSX. For example; I have added airports and flight plans, both of which use Simconnect. There are two SDK updates, and because I have both SPs I needed both SDK updates. Not sure if you need them otherwise. You can get more info from Fsinsider.Bob

Your SLI will be useless in FSX (I suspect you may already be aware of that, and using this rig for other games, so just saying.)If it's primarily your flight computer, however, you'd be better off ditching the expensive video cards and Vista 64, and spending the money instead on CPUs and XP.
