Plus it's Flight Simulator.... Remember this isn't COD where we're running like crazy around and everything is fast paced.
I have FSX so I know, trust me, 31 FPS is good, 5 more frames WILL NOT make any difference whatsoever, remember you're just flying around nothing crazy
I don't see the justification of you paying so much extra money for 5 frames per second.


Computer parts can always be upgraded for more performance, but there always comes that wall where you spend large amounts of money for a minimal performance increase..... This is one of those things

the Phenom 2 fans, work amazing.

just dont overclock with one.


and your PC your ordering will most certainly play any game on max settings no problem.
so you wouldnt have to stick to just mmo's and simulations if you didnt want to.

im going to build it, not order it. high end PC's are too expensive to order pre-built. will the graphics card be able to handle 2 moniters at once in case im ever interested in buying another one or will i have to upgrade it or SLI it.

lol, by ordering i meant ordering the parts to put together to build your own pc

sure that card can handle 2 monitors.
maybe even a 3rd if u wanted.

My Phenom II X4 955 b.e. @ 3.2GHz (stock) with stock fans is running at 31C idle and never past 47C under full load.

The stock fans are fine if you don't plan to overclock.
