  1. I have decided that i would like to build a computer for X-Plane 10 as it simply does not run on my PC. My budget is around £600-£700 and have created a list of parts for a system on PCPartPicker and would like some feedback on how it will perform running X-Plane on pretty high settings. I am wondering if an SSD accelerated setup would help boot times etc, if it would be worth it, but have no clue how to do it, what SSD to use ETC. I may in the future overclock but only if I desire higher performance which is why there are overclockable components. I only use a single monitor. The List: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£177.78 @ Scan.co.uk) Motherboard: Asus Z87I-Pro Mini-ITX Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard (£119.84 @ Scan.co.uk) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£66.96 @ Scan.co.uk) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£45.20 @ Scan.co.uk) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card (£154.39 @ Scan.co.uk) Case: BitFenix Prodigy (Black) Mini ITX Tower Case (£69.95 @ Aria PC) Case Fan: BitFenix Spectre Pro LED 156.3 CFM 230mm Fan (£16.99 @ Amazon UK) Power Supply: Corsair CX 500W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£47.23 @ Amazon UK) Total: £698.34 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
